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

VALORANT is Riot’s take on a character-based tactical shooter (for more info on VALORANT click here!) . As a Staff Software Engineer on the VALORANT team you will be responsible for building metagame client features and scalable backend services for Store systems throughout VALORANT. You'll influence the technical direction for how VALORANT services are built, scale and are operated in production, and collaborate with design to build smooth and intuitive player-facing in-game experiences. All the store and monetization systems you design and build will be “Player Focused”, which means that they will be built in a way where players choose to engage with them rather than feeling pressured to engage with them.

You will report to the Engineering Manager of the Store team.
