Riot Overview

 

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. In the years since, Riot has launched additional games, new esports, music, live experiences, and, most recently with the launch of “Arcane,” TV. We’re expanding Riot’s Entertainment (“REG”) team to bring our characters, stories, and worlds to players around the world in high impact ways. This team will imagine and develop new experiences and products across Film/TV, Animation, Narrative Driven Games, Consumer Products, Location Based Experience and beyond. We will foster collaboration with Games, Esports, and Publishing teams to deliver rich, cross-product experiences that deepen players' and fans' connections to our IP and to each other.

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 and broader entertainment sectors. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.
