What Makes a Rioter
Do you find that extra hour, no matter your day, to squeeze in one more game? Do you lose yourself in interactive worlds? When you’re not playing games, are you strategizing ways to increase your win rate or solve that final puzzle? If yes, you’re a gamer. Whatever you play, if you make time to play, you’re a gamer. We believe that when you bring a passion for gaming, you’ll be able to empathize with player joy and player pain to help us make better, player-focused decisions.
Equally important is a growth mindset. You should see every day as an opportunity to improve yourself. We’re not looking for the feedback averse. You need conviction, passion, and horsepower to excel at Riot. We’re not in the rockstar business—we want smart, collaborative, and creative team players. It’s always about players. If it needs to be about you, we’re not the right spot.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be a gamer? Do I need to be ranked in League?
To make the best games for players, it's important that we're gamers ourselves. If you have a rank in League make sure to provide that information, as it can be relevant for some positions.
Can I apply for multiple jobs?
We want applicants to think deeply about their skills and interest—and how they line up with the jobs available at Riot. It's not a good sign if you find yourself applying to as many open positions as possible.
I interviewed/applied last year and wasn’t selected. Can I reapply?
Needs change, and people grow. If you've leveled up since your last application, feel free to apply to the appropriate role.
