Riot Games was founded in 2006 by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill with the intent to change the way video games are made and supported for players. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to worldwide acclaim. The game has since gone on to become the most played PC game in the world and a key driver of the explosive growth of esports. Players are the foundation of our community and it’s for them we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience. Riot Games is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA and has 23 offices worldwide.

As a leader within Live Services, you will be part of a broad team that enables Riot to launch and operate multiple games at scale. You will work with teams across Live Operations, Player Support, and Localization. Whether game teams need help serving millions of players around the globe, ensuring players’ issues are resolved in a timely manner, or simply ensuring players are able to play their game in their native language, Live Services is there to support them.

The Role

Riot engineers bring deep knowledge of specific technical areas but also value the chance to work in many broader domains. As a Senior Manager, Software Engineering in Live Services , you will oversee the health and performance of the Engineering Discipline across Riot’s Live Services group. You will work with other discipline leads in leading various teams of developers in pursuit of our product goals. You will also be accountable for the organizational leadership of all engineers working in Live Services. You will hire to grow the team as Riot matures in operating multiple games and will coach managers on the team to create an effective and inclusive work environment.
