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 QA Engineer, you'll monitor and improve Riot's quality assurance procedures in Korea, identifying development points and providing visibility to relevant stakeholders, so we're consistently delivering the highest-quality service for our players. Your ability to inspire the team, combined with your analytic prowess, adept communication skills and cultural adaptability will help you set the bar on how to best connect with League of Legends players to solve their most pressing problems.

As a Rioter in Seoul, you’ll join a tight knit group of exceptionally bright minded individuals who share our prioritization of player experience, rejection of convention, and passion for gaming. Riot Games Korea is dedicated to creating tailored player experiences that show local players they aren’t lost in translation.

You are:

  • Experienced: you're devoted to quality, efficiency, and improvement; you've been applying those concepts for two-plus years in a professional environment related to software development and QA; you majored in software engineering and have experience with test automation along with a deep understanding of web service development
  • Team-focused: you know collaboration often produces better results, so you are open to both giving and receiving feedback, fresh ideas, questions or suggestions; your track record of improving and contributing with teams that produced results speaks for itself
  • Analytic and Critical: you dissect complex tasks and dilemmas under a microscope, seeking out snafus' root causes to formulate both quick fixes and systemic solutions
  • A wordsmith: you can write clearly and concisely about bugs you encounter during playtests leaving no room for misunderstanding, gaffe, or offense
  • A proficient communicator: you can communicate fluently in Korean through the most appropriate medium, be it email, hallway conversation or messenger pigeon; you speak enough English to get you through most daily conversations and are able to read technical documents in English without a problem
  • Intellectually curious: Riot's internal technology space is complex and to measure and define quality within that complexity means you've gotta be a lifelong learner; you pick things up and shake them around to see what breaks, and then figure out how to fix it
  • A fervent gamer: you've played many games, including a good deal of League of Legends, and your personal experiences as an avid online gamer have helped you understand what a critical role QA plays in the overall impression of a game; you're ready to actively apply your observations, discoveries and opinions to craft a satisfaction-guaranteed player experience

You will:

  • Ensure quality for all League of Legends content and Korea-specific features
  • Develop and implement manual and automated tests for various functions of League of Legends, the PC-Bang, Shutdown system, and billing system to deliver products of the highest quality for KR players
  • Identify and report any bugs you discover; follow up with existing bugs, making sure they're fixed
  • Unite with the team to defend the game from any hidden defects by developing and monitoring QA procedures, methodologies, and policies
  • Communicate risks, defects, feature completeness, and test coverage reports to relevant teams to help inform any critical decision-making

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. When applying for a Korea job, please include your resume either in Korean or English.
