Riot Games Jobs
“We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor.

We embrace those who see things differently, who aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for the rules.
Applicants should first learn about Riot and play League of Legends because we’re looking for people who, like us, take play seriously and for whom it’s never ‘just a game.'”
