As Writer , you will produce technically excellent writing that still manages to sound fresh, be fun and have personality. Your ability to employ a range of voices and tones is important, because your sweet wordcraft will be used in diverse situations – from external websites and social media to internal presentations. Your work will be read by a global array of audiences including current and future Riot team members, fans, business partners, and press.

You are :
  • Experienced: candidates should bring at least three years of experience cranking out high-quality, long- and short-form writing in a corporate communications environment, advertising agency, corporate creative services department or national print or online publication, though where you wrote matters less than what you wrote
  • Productive and motivated: you believe writer’s block is for amateurs; you produce tight work on ludicrous deadlines
  • An idea machine: your brainstorms make other brainstorms look like headsprinkles or braincloudies with a chance of scattered showers; you find fresh similes and metaphors that make communication more effective
  • Culturally astute: you’re a native gamer but a cultural polyglot; you not only grok the meme of the day, but also the proto-meme, meta-meme, and the uber-meme
  • Empathetic: you evaluate how different audiences might perceive your writing and steer clear of gaffes that could create difficult situations
  • Practical: though it offends your artistic sensibilities, you’re OK with having to polish an occasional turd; you have the wisdom to recognize when perfection is the enemy of good
  • Technically proficient: you are skilled with the tools of web and professional content production including hands-on experience with content management systems such as WordPress and Drupal
You will :
  • Write and edit long- and short-form copy for use on a variety of internal- and external-facing channels (including blogs, websites, social media, forums, presentations, training materials, internal memos and even job descriptions like this one)
  • Develop and evangelize a copy style guide that ensures copy that is consistent with the company's values
  • Provide advisory services to team members who need help, constructively reviewing and/or editing others' written work for grammar, tone, voice and creative quality
  • Develop and maintain a high-quality database of boilerplate copy that enables faster service and turnaround for time-sensitive projects
To Apply: Include these materials along with your resume and cover letter:
  • Your three best writing samples, ideally stuff that will appeal to gamers and game developers like us
  • A rewrite of and improvement upon the first graf of this job description
  • Your resume and one-page statement of interest in the position
  • A 140- character version of the above statement of interest
