Reporting into the Global Head of VALORANT Esports, you will be responsible for driving the sport’s strategy and developing insights from both commercial and competitive perspectives.

You will lead a team of business strategists and project managers to research, ideate, and implement novel commercial, fan engagement, and competition strategies to support VALORANT’s continued growth as one of the world’s leading esports.

You will ensure the strategic landscape is well-defined, that challenges and opportunity spaces are identified and prioritized, and that leadership is armed with the insights to drive the best decisions for the long term health of the sport.
