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 Communications Strategist, you'll work with the creative departments at Riot Games to forge a strong Riot creative identity and reinforce cultural alignment through the strategy you develop. With your leadership and experience, you'll work together with a passionate swat team to bring resonate communications and events to both Rioters and future Rioters.

You are:

  • Comfortable with ambiguity: when changes are made, you keep a cool head and fight on, even if you don't have all the details; you're comfortable moving between projects and facing the uncertain because risk and change motivates you to evolve and innovate
  • Direct: as a leader, you move quickly and decisively to address potential issues with team members and face sticky situations head-on; you know that the only things that should be sugar-coated in a collaborative workspace are living in the vending machine, so you continue to hold reviews and timely discussions that keep team members aligned and aware of any performance problems 
  • A coach: you shine brightest when developing a team's talents through active goal-setting, challenging assignments, and repeated success, ultimately improving upon each person's strengths and weaknesses and building an unstoppable team that you always push to level up
  • Informative: like a human news ticker, you're a trusted source of timely information, providing teammates with insight, instruction and advice; your constant updates add valuable fuel to the decision-making process, always keeping teams in the know and primed for takeoff
  • Personable: your outgoing, positive nature is infectious, making it easy for you to create genuine, collaborative bonds and relationships with all types, whether Rioter, player, partner or otherwise; you put your affability to good use, quickly diffusing the most tense situations before they become awkward or heated
  • A master planner: you're a project pathfinder, breaking down massive ventures into obtainable, measurable, non-panic-attack-inducing objectives; when projects seem overly daunting, you steer the process along with calculated planning and efficient scheduling that helps you hurdle barriers and bust through blockers 
  • Strategic: your foresight is 20/20, enabling you to get a jump on future trends and shifts with seer-like accuracy; you anticipate consequences, creating breakthrough strategies and plans that zig when everyone else is stuck in the zag 
  • Perceptive: your potent powers of perception help you understand and empathize with people's motivations, intentions, and needs; your insightfulness gives you super psychic powers, helping you predict people's future actions in meetings, peer-to-peer interactions, or the impending zombie apocalypse  

You will:

  • Develop a communications and branding strategy that cultivates a creative identity and reinforces cultural alignment for the Art, Audio and Narrative departments
  • Test and verify the success of your strategy through regular research and analysis
  • Lead a team to successfully execute against the strategy through internal and external communications, and events
  • Collaborate with the Creative leadership team to propose and implement communications and branding solutions to short and long term departmental challenges

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.
