Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. As the most played video game in the world, over 100 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.

We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take play seriously; you’re passionate about games. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.

That's where you come in.

As Esports Color Commentator, your informative and entertaining insights into professional League of Legends competition will light up on-air broadcasts and off-air written content. Drawing on your knowledge of gaming and sprinkling in your unique personality, you'll drop knowledge bombs as color commentary. Of course, you can talk for hours if no one stops you, but you can wield the digital pen as ruthlessly as your rapier-like wit, slicing through the chaff to get to the wheat of written content. Whether in Los Angeles, Beijing, or anywhere else LoL tournaments come alive, you're equipped to educate and entertain.

You are:

  • An on-air personality : you're as charismatic casting for an audience of millions as you are narrating your buddies' basement board game nights; you add flavor that's more filet mignon than Salisbury steak to any broadcast
  • Crazy for LoL : your passion for League of Legends and esports goes beyond the game; you know your LCS from your LPL and you meticulously follow every pro match, tournament, and team to keep current with the global LoL competitive scene
  • An LCK expert : you have been an avid follower of LCK, and know ins and outs of LCK history. You are already familiar with LCK teams, pro-players, and community discourse.
  • A team player : while you're comfortable flying solo, you perform your best in a team environment
  • Travel-ready : you love to travel and don't even believe in jet lag, so you're ready to hop a plane whenever you need to cover any event; you're prepared to uproot for a while to support long-term esports initiatives wherever they might happen

You will:

  • Deliver compelling and exciting LCK broadcasts and participate in production of shoulder contents
  • Delve into pro LoL teams across global leagues, augmenting your previous knowledge with in-depth research
  • Help construct a weekly narrative for each matchup broadcasted
  • Give and receive actionable feedback during team-review sessions
  • Ensure consistent brand messaging and clear communications across all media, including web content, broadcast, and social media

Don’t forget to include a resume and cover letter. We receive a lot of applications, but we’ll notice a fun, well-written intro that shows us you take play seriously.
