In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends and has since gone on to become the most played PC game in the world and a key driver of the dramatic growth of esports. At the core is the Global Esports team, the group responsible for operating the major League of Legends competitive international tournaments, defining global policies for the sport, driving global narratives, and providing services to our 12 different regional leagues. Our vision is to bring joy to billions of fans around the world by fostering a thriving global sport ecosystem. That’s where you come in.

For every global event produced by League of Legends Esports, there are premiere partners that help us bring amazing experiences for our live audience, the fans watching at home and our pro players and teams. These invaluable sponsors provide the resources and expertise that allow us to provide the world’s #1 esport to millions of fans across the globe with an eye towards continuous innovation and growth and a commitment to elevating the fan experience. From weekly content pieces to the fan being flown to the World Finals to meet her heroes, our sponsors do it all. But they can’t do it alone, and that is where our Global Esports Business Development and Partnerships Team comes in. The Global Esports Business Development Team & Partnerships Team attracts, services and retains our partners, acting as brand ambassadors of Riot Games to external parties and as emissaries of our partners to our fans, pro players, and teams.

As a Partnership Manager on the global team, you will be the main point of contact for our partners, managing their campaigns and helping to drive the vision for how our partners express their brand vision through our global events: the Mid-Season Invitational, All-Star Event, and, the most anticipated event of the LOL Esports season, the World Championship. Your duties will cover the full breadth of a sponsor’s activation, from planning and ideation to execution of broadcast placements, social media, experiential and more. You understand and advocate for our sponsors’ objectives while keeping your finger on the pulse of what the sport needs and what excites our fans, delivering a win-win-win for our partners, our community, and Riot.
