Senior Product Manager - League of Legends (Mobile)

| Greater LA Area

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 experience.

Product Managers at Riot Games help lead the vision of each individual product across the finish line, and 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, the Mechs vs. Minions board game, 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.

Product Managers guide the product lifecycle from start to finish. They understand the intricate nuances of what the audience needs from the products we develop. Each product is unusual, with a different set of challenges from the last, so Product Managers ought to be flexible and able to adjust to changing situational demands. We have no set path to shipping a product. There’s no fixed process to follow, and no one to decide what to do in order to launch.
