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 32 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 Senior Project Manager, you’ll direct initiatives and shepherd projects that help grow a world-class creative organization focused on team collaboration, not top-down bureaucracy . You’ll manage progressive programs backed by concrete analytics. By ensuring that Riot continues to be an ever-better, open environment that promotes learning and creativity, you’ll help inspire people to feats of ingenuity that improve player experiences. You’ll work with Rioters from specific disciplines ranging from People Operations to Finance, identifying the challenges they face and helping them tear through any red tape that stands between them and getting shit done. Your diligent stewardship will ensure that Rioters feel as though the projects they work on are highly visible, satisfying and adding value in tangible ways.
A people-first leader: you know great organizations build diverse, collaborative teams guided by passionate leaders that make work fun and rewarding; since motivation’s not about sticks and carrots, you ensure people working on your projects have growth potential, recognition for their accomplishments, reasonable milestones and achievable goals
Focused on talent and team : you know the most cohesive teams are made up of singular individuals , and that one big idea pales by comparison to the thousands of cool little ideas that come out of a group working together; in other words, your project management style backs up the elite, player-focused commandos you trust to independently tackle objectives and assassinate problems with ruthless efficiency
A veteran innovator: you’ve spent at least five years leading projects for organizations that are evolving faster than a certain Prodigal Explorer’s sci-fi armor; you know failure’s the negative space around success, and aren’t afraid to try different (and sometimes radical) solutions to find one that blows past “adequate” to solve problems and seize opportunities
Communications guru: your well-honed presentation, persuasion and interpersonal skills help you to effectively communicate goals and strategies to fellow Rioters; you employ multiple communication tools to help get your point across and keep projects organized
Analytical: you’re able to expertly explore metrics and analyze trends to construct business cases that support your initiatives; the rigor of your analysis can withstand robust counter proposals
Partner with senior leadership to craft first-rate organization principles
Manage vendors to develop and implement a set of applications that’ll provide higher visibility into project deliverables
Help plot the roadmap that leads towards leveling-up the teams you work with, and then coordinate internal and external resources to execute on your strategic roadmap
