“Riot Denewbification,” or “Denewb” for short, is Riot’s answer to new hire orientation, and is a program offered by Riot’s central Learning and Development team.

As a Specialist on our Learning and Development team, you will support new Rioters as they begin their own journeys with Riot. You will help determine what great learning looks like as you foster a welcoming environment, keep the show running, and lead by example embodying Riot’s values, mission, and strategy.

  • Partner with Recruiting, both in Central and internationally, monitoring Denewb enrollment, making adjustments, and ensuring classes are filled
  • Monitor all Denewb social channels, and provide clear communication
  • Shadow and develop as a facilitator, eventually acting as a back-up to the Denewb Facilitator, and facilitating future onboarding programs, including: off-cadence onboarding, contractor onboarding, Intern Denewb, team/discipline/product onboarding
  • Support and transition Rioters into their new work home to improve onboarding onto a Rioter’s team and increase efficiency as they start their work.
