Established in 2020, the Singapore Studio is Riot’s second international game development studio. Working together with our Hong Kong Studio, Riot has been expanding our footprint in Asia and accelerating our talent growth to develop games that deliver great experiences to our players. Our mission is to “scale Riot’s games to hyper-serve players.”

We partner with our LA headquarters on game development for League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra. We’re also building teams for VALORANT and Project L, our take on a fighting game. The Singapore Studio is seeking talented, passionate Rioters with backgrounds in all areas of game development to build games that make it better to be a player.

We’re focused on working together to promote individual autonomy, ownership, collaboration, and inclusivity, so every Rioter can be their best while we boldly pursue games.

That's where you come in.

VALORANT is Riot's take on a character-based tactical shooter (for more info on VALORANT click here !). As a discipline lead for the VALORANT Character Art team, you'll lead a team to design and help build iconic, readable and believable Characters that will not only be resonant to our players but also preserve the competitive integrity for gameplay.

You will build and support a high performing external team, and give them the guidance and context they need in order to deliver amazing environments that set industry standards on craft, whilst enriching the storytelling of the product they support. Through a mix of craft training and hands on leadership, you will level up the team’s craft, mediate and resolve craft disagreements and misalignments, and keep the team motivated towards creating excellent experiences for our players. Using your broad knowledge of the art, craft and technique of Character Art, you’ll set clear goals for your team, and make sure the process of delivering those goals is as smooth as possible for both your team and their stakeholders.

You will partner closely with the product teams and other artists, ensuring the characters are not only excellent in a vacuum, but also aligns with the larger product. You will maintain your own craft skills, inspire creativity and keep a high quality bar with hands on Character Art work as you deem necessary.
