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 video 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 Caster Management in Shanghai, you'll help develop Riot Shanghai's broadcasting and shout-caster strategy, which includes improving shoutcasting product quality and designing an ecosystem while handling all facets of planning and policy for casters. You'll collaborate with external partners like Tencent, while also working to build out League of Legends esports as a respected brand in the entertainment and gaming industries. You’ll enjoy both the depth and breadth of learning in an empowering culture with excellent mentoring and career development opportunities.
As a Rioter in China, you'll join a team of internationally and culturally diverse professionals that share our prioritization of player experience, rejection of convention and maniacal passion for gaming.
To reinforce Riot’s collaborative culture in our China offices, we’ve decided to do away with the constraints of traditional hierarchical title structures that are more common in the region. Titles don’t really matter at any of Riot’s offices, but we chose to take this extra step in our China offices to foster a space where teamwork thrives. We believe that removing this constraint will promote individual autonomy, ownership, collaboration, and a focus on results. We promise you won’t need a title at Riot to make an impact.
- Multilingual: you're comfortable conversing in English and Mandarin; you didn't learn these languages in a cultural vacuum and can pick up nuances that could mean the difference between pleasing someone and pissing them off
- A critical thinker: for you, easy equals boring, and you relish a challenge because you take creative problem-solving in your morning coffee; you use data and research to find the best solutions when metaphorical (and very rarely literal) fires need to be put out
- Detail oriented: your diligence, organizational skills, and attention to detail mean you've got in-depth knowledge of every issue that crosses your desk and the skills to handle them quickly
- An entrepreneurial doer: you don't need a lot of instructions; you make your own decisions and take your own decisions; you create order out of ambiguity; you're a responsible person who will deliver on-time
- Player-focused: your passion for gaming can be felt in most of your big life decisions, from which computer to buy to where you live (fiber-based internet or death); it's this passion for play that drives you to forge deeply real connections with the League of Legends community
- An esports fan: you watch every game you loved and you can find, wear team tattoo on game day to support your team, and seek out every stat, factoid, and story about your favorite esports.
- Adaptable: you're someone who can tackle any problem with ease and a fast learner who can get up to speed quickly; you're adaptable and can course-correct at light speed in our ever-changing business
- Approachable: you listen to others and are sensitive to any communication style, and that makes it easy for anyone to talk to you; others trust you and feel comfortable coming to you with, so any rising problems can be tackled before they spiral into fiery vortices of bad vibrations
- Conceive and execute mid/long-term strategies related to shoutcasters that offer players a powerful experience
- Develop methods to level up casters to be successful, and be responsible for the performances of current shoutcasters and the quality of the product they delivered to viewers
- Manage issues related to shoutcasters and be the point person coordinating with various stakeholders throughout the esports ecosystem, ranging from other internal teams, pro teams, players, producers, all the way to broadcasting platform partners
- Create metrics that help measure the success of the shoutcasters, and provide comprehensive feedback for their growth
- Responsible for finding new talents in shoutcasting
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.
