As a Staff Software Engineer on the Continuous Service Delivery (CSD) team, you will report to an Engineering Manager and work with a passionate team of software engineers and systems engineers. We partner with the many game teams and services teams at Riot to solve relevant CI/CD problems for their developers. Our goal is to provide the tools, products, and workflows for these teams so that they can hone in on their areas of expertise rather than needing to learn the nuances of implementing and operating their own CI/CD infrastructure and tooling.

As a member of CSD, you will help provide a reliable, and efficient pipeline for code from local development all the way through to production. You will help lead efforts to construct an ecosystem of tools and products that integrate well with each other, remove friction from the development lifecycle, and empower all of Riot Engineering to "level up". Your role includes creating solutions that give both veteran and brand new Rioters the visibility they need to use and understand our products easily right from the start.


  • Create and operate tools and services that improve engineering efficiency for Riot developers world-wide
  • Work and align with partners on diverse teams to ensure we are delivering the correct features
  • Reduce uncertainty in a complex and diverse problem space through technical discovery and prototyping

Required Qualifications: 

  • 6+ years of experience in a Software Engineering role
  • Have designed and led development on large efforts (6+ month scope), including requirements gathering, planning, testing, release, and leading development across multiple contributors
  • In-depth understanding of modern design patterns and paradigms, especially around API contracts, and backend services that are reliable and scalable

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience with two or more programming languages (e.g. Java, Python, Golang, C++)
  • Experience with AWS technologies (e.g. EC2, EKS, Airflow)
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines (e.g. Jenkins)
