Producer - League of Legends, Champions
Producers reside within the Product Management discipline at Riot Games and help lead the vision of individual products across the finish line. They also assist in building and delivering experiences beyond our audience's expectations. We’re involved in almost every product you can think of, be it an epic new skin, a new game mode for League of Legends, or the internal tools needed by engineers or artists to speed up their craft. Whatever the calling, we identify and deliver the solution that our audience needs.
As a Producer, you’ll lead passionate cross-functional teams in crafting creative content and incredible experiences for players around the world. By encouraging teams to collaborate, you’ll drive development, smashing through obstacles and driving projects into players’ hands. You’ll exceed expectations by helping concept, deliver, improve, and influence creative projects at every stage of production.
As a Producer on the Champions team, you will guide the vision for champions for League of Legends. You’ll ensure every new Champion we craft has clear goals, and that opportunities to revisit our older champions are carefully considered as well. You will be responsible for defining what success looks like and helping the development team achieve it. You will partner with other producers, as well as a diverse group of developers from many disciplines, to shepherd ideas from concept to completion.
