In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to worldwide acclaim. The game has since gone on to become the most played PC game in the world and a key driver of the explosive growth of esports. Whether you're in Rio, Seoul or Moscow, you can find an excited and engaged community of our players. Delivering content to a global audience of millions of players whilst also building new games affords Riot's Engineering discipline with a mountain of exciting and technically complex challenges. That's where you come in.

The Development Manager role lives in the Production discipline. We work together as part of the giant central nervous system that includes nearly everyone at Riot. We’re interlaced on teams throughout the entire company, coordinating across different products and regions as we share goals, insights, and standard methodologies. It is through this communal learning, growing, and sharing of information that we help lead teams across Riot to delivery excellence. As a Senior Development Manager, you guide teams to deliver player value through effective agile work systems and practices. You will drive internal alignment and accountability for teams and development organizations, and consistently focus on improvement.

On our R&D team, you will be working on an unannounced game, helping to drive work to completion. You will do this by collaborating with other initiatives to complete shared features and content, maintaining an initiative level schedule and run “what if” scenarios to aid with decision-making. Your role requires you to update partners with scope status and risks so we can help with our initiative leads backlogs, and hold other initiative leads accountable for completing their work. Other responsibilities include working with your team to build feature and content pipelines and workflows as well as monitor, mitigate and raise team health issues to ensure the initiative is running efficiently.

Required Skills:

  • Experience leading multi-disciplinary teams in delivering features to players in an always on, live service environment
  • Experience with Agile/Scrum, Kanban work systems
  • Experience in helping teams optimize their work processes
  • 5+ years of experience working in Game Development
