Riot Engineers bring deep knowledge of specific technical areas but also value the chance to work in many broader domains. As a Software Engineer, you’ll also dive into projects that focus on team cohesiveness and cross-team goals. You’ll lead without authority and provide other engineers with a clear illustration of extraordinary engineering.

Project L is Riot's League-IP take on a competitive fighting game. As a Staff Software Engineer, you will be responsible for the entire back-end servicing the core gameplay of Project L. This includes defining interactions between client and server that are fundamental to every player’s experience (think: high load, high availability). This also includes ensuring we have monitoring and diagnostic capabilities to help us when things go wrong. You will ensure we have a solid technical foundation so when we get to launch at scale, everything goes smoothly. You will report to the Engineering Manager of Project L’s Core Gameplay team.
