16 days ago

As a Game Designer, you will design, tweak, and optimize the player experience. Your analytical skills, player insight, and creativity aid in crafting in- and out-of-game experiences that engage and surprise players. You will collaborate with interdisciplinary teams and work with every tool at hand to innovate and iterate player-focused designs that'll delight millions around the world.

As a Principal Game Designer in Research & Development working on early stage products, you will help decipher Riot’s next big bets, specifically in the monetization space. You will work to build monetization (and interdependent systems, like progression) from the ground up. Together with PMs, revenue strategists, and meta-systems designers, you will work to maximize our business outcomes without compromising on what makes our games world-class in terms of fun, engagement, and player-focus. You will solve the highest impact monetization design problems across all of our R&D games, through direct effort or in collaboration with monetization designers / revenue strategists on the game teams. You are comfortable operating in an ambiguous environment where goals and constraints are mostly team driven and where change, big and small, is a critical part of the process. You will balance meaningfully engaging with, questioning, and leveling up the product strategy especially as it intersects with monetization, while simultaneously inheriting and championing the game vision as stated by the team. You will report to the Strategic Advisory Lead on the Strategic Research group in the R&D Office.
