Riot Games was established in 2006 by avid 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. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience, and beyond!

As a London Rioter, you'll join a small but dedicated team striving to help Riot become the most player-focused game company in the world.

Additionally you will work with an EU People team ensuring that core People Programs are optimised and HR service delivery is consistent to maximise Rioter engagement.

We’re looking for passionate professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. We embrace those who see things differently and aren’t afraid to experiment. That's where you come in.
