... Office work

Riot’s mission is to put players at the center of everything we do.  We do this by continuing to evolve and deliver new experiences to players with games like Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, VALORANT, and League of Legends. Riot is also expanding into the world of music/multimedia with the release of our animated series Arcane and music from KDA and True Damage.  In short - it’s an exciting time to be a Rioter.

As Game Producers at Riot, we lead passionate technical teams to create products and experiences that want to achieve maximum developer and player value. We guide development, clear blockers, and push projects across the finish line while making sure that our teams are sustainable and have a great collaborative environment.

VALORANT’s Store team is responsible for building technology and features to create best-in-class opportunities for players to express themselves and their personal flair using the content that they acquire in-game. All the store and monetization systems your team designs and builds will be “Player Focused”, which means that they will be built in a way where players choose to engage with them rather than feeling pressured to engage with them.  Ideally, you have a strong interest in services and distributed systems as well as an understanding of content acquisition pipelines and inventory management. You will report to the Manager /Senior Manager for your area.
