Riot’s Talent Discipline has a shared identity of caring deeply about the player experience - we seek to build a work environment where Rioters can do their best work for excited players globally. We demonstrate our craft knowledge in the human resources field, whether it is sourcing, hiring, performance management, total rewards, or learning and development to support Riot Games. That's where you come in.

As Recruiting Manager is a leader in the Recruiting organization. You'll lead the development of recruiting teams for a large portion of the business, as well as drive a culture of continuous improvement across the Recruiting discipline. You’ll manage groups of Recruiters, RCs, Sourcers and Schedulers of varying degrees of seniority to design and execute on staffing plans. With a focus on building and maintaining adherence to high standards for both your direct and peer teams, you’ll inform your approach through market-knowledge that you both bring through experience and develop through external networking and research. You’ll also make sure the business can rely on you as a partner by focusing on reporting of historic and forecasted staffing outcomes.

As the Recruiting Manager for League of Legends ("LoL"), you will get a chance to help build and maintain a large, creatively-focused team. The clients you will work with span Art, Engineering, Production, and all of the rest of the development functions required to ship one of the most-played games in the world. You will also work closely with other Recruiting teams within the game development space at Riot, as this role is paired with a peer role within Riot’s “R&D” (new game development) team. You’ll also facilitate domestic and international transfers to/from the team you support, and generally make sure LoL has all the staff needed to keep players on the Rift.
