Riot Games was founded in 2006 by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill with the intent to change the way video games are made and supported for players. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to worldwide acclaim. The game has since gone on to become the most played PC game in the world and a key driver of the explosive growth of esports. Players are the foundation of our community and it’s for them we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience. Riot Games is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA and has 23 offices worldwide.
Player Experience First
We care about and obsess over every part of the player experience. From your first game to your thousandth win, from installation to player support to esports broadcasts—every interaction point matters.

Impossible’s our favorite kind of possible. Doing the right thing often means upending the status quo. We embrace productive conflict to help us understand new perspectives and arrive at the best solutions.

Focus on Talent and Team
We know talented Rioters are key to everything we do. We seek impact and value results over titles or seniority. We build collaborative, motivated, goal-oriented teams that organize around solving the right problems for players.

Take Play Seriously
It’s never just a game. Games are an important part of our lives and we proudly call ourselves gamers. By playing lots of games, especially our own, we deliver player value by knowing what players value.
Definitely (Not) Rivals
Stay Hungry; Stay Humble
We humbly encourage, seek, and accept feedback. We help each other improve by being open and honest, even when it hurts. We’re self-motivated individuals who know we’re never done and that there’s always more we can learn and more we can do for players.
