Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. As the most played PC game in the world, over 100 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.
We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take play seriously; you’re passionate about games. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.
That's where you come in.
As Art Manager, you'll drive artistic vision for the LAS office, leading the efforts to craft visual styles, guidelines, and processes to level up regional products. You’ll hire and lead a team of talented artists, manage external vendors, and help us create fantastic experiences for local players.
As a Santiago Rioter, you’ll join a growing team of player-focused pros that share a rejection of convention and a maniacal passion for gaming. Riot Games Santiago is dedicated to creating tailored player experiences that show local players they aren't lost in translation.
- Player-focused: you understand your impact on the player experience because you're a player, too; you listen closely to the community to better understand their needs before they do and improve the overall League of Legends experience
- Skilled: you've spent years honing your abilities and core foundational art principles (2D, 3D, visual design) and you've got the track record to prove it; you're familiar with industry standard 2D, 3D, and tracking/management software and seek innovation to find the latest and greatest tools of the trade
- A leader: you guide teams down the right paths even if they're unpopular or difficult to traverse; your unshakeable confidence and cool head makes others look towards you when sirens are blaring and all hell is generally breaking loose
- A workflow wiz: you're a master of process, able to simplify the complex, organize chaos, separate or combine tasks, and get more out of less to finish the job; you understand where the links in the chain should go, hooking together often overlooked opportunities and partnerships
- A career cultivator: your constructive feedback and committed mentorship improves as well as inspires those around you, helping them shape their careers and craft their future
- A talent tracker: you look beyond the resume, seeing promise in people heretofore untapped; whether promoting from within or hiring from the outside, you use your intuitive powers to assemble super teams, sans gamma explosions and secret experiments gone terribly wrong, without fear of hiring those stronger than yourself
- (Optional) A video virtuoso: you've worked in producing video in a capacity of cinematographer, director or producer; you know how to use the medium to create powerful, engaging experiences for players
- Provide effective direction to the art team and outsource artists to create great-looking websites, videos, visual identity for regional products (e.g., Copa Latinoamérica, Soy Lolero) and other local content
- Hire, mentor, and manage an industry-leading art team
- Set priorities and develop solutions that deliver quality results within time and budget constraints
- Collaborate within a cross-discipline team (art, community, esports, operations) to establish a project's success criteria
- Foster team health, collaboration, and visibility with clear goals and communication
- Be accountable for art team results and balance of quality vs. velocity in art production
Don’t forget to include a resume and cover letter. We receive a lot of applications, but we’ll notice a fun, well-written intro that shows us you take play seriously.
