Technical Producer II - League Studio, SDK
Technical Producers at Riot lead passionate development teams to create products and experiences that want to achieve maximum developer and player value. We guide development, smash through obstacles, and push projects across the finish line while making sure that our teams are sustainable and have a great collaborative environment.
As a Technical Producer on the League SDK team, you will partner with Engineering, Product, and Tech Leads to guide a team in developing the LeagueSDK, a set of APIs that game devs can use to more easily integrate with the services built for League Studio games. This team is the intersection point between games and services; creating patterns that let game teams “do it right” from the start and building foundations that allow game teams to clean up existing bespokeness.

You will set team direction to ensure project goals are met, manage the day-to-day work, be the custodian of delivery processes internal to the team and ensure that collaboration with external teams runs smoothly. You will oversee delivery, build work systems, maintain execution, and provide initiative leadership with visibility on complex deliverables. You will also ensure the team works at a sustainable pace and continuously improves. You will report to the Service Operations Delivery Lead.
