Player Support Producer II
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.
Live Services is a global initiative committed to protecting the total player experience. We ensure Riot's content, services, and products are available to be enjoyed as expected and as intended by players around the world. In order to do this, we specialize in developing and maintaining product support structures that are resilient, responsive, and informative.
Producers at Riot Games support the product life cycle from start to finish and understand the intricate nuances of what the audience needs from the products we develop. Each product is unique, with a different set of challenges from the last, so Producers seek to be flexible and continuously adjust to changing situational demands in delivering the best player experience.
