Riot Games was established in 2006 by entrepreneurial gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to critical and player acclaim. As the most played PC game in the world, over 100 million play every month. Players form the foundation of our community and it’s for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience.
We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. Like us, you take play seriously; you’re passionate about games. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a healthy disregard for constraints.
That's where you come in.
Development Managers guide teams to deliver player value through effective agile work systems and practices. While driving internal alignment and accountability for teams and development organizations, we consistently focus on driving improvement.
As a Senior Development Manager and Delivery Lead for our Games (Product & Publishing) team in Brazil, you will drive delivery of projects and services across multiple teams. You'll be working with and mentoring producers and publishing leads. Serving as the air traffic controller for emergent work, you'll prioritize and drive projects across multiple complex problem domains. Your work will contribute new content and experiences that players love, which will ultimately provide a positive impact for both players and Riot alike.
Important to note, this is not an Research & Development focus. This position will work with the challenge of publishing new games and products in the region, not with game development.
As a São Paulo Rioter, you’ll join a growing team of player-focused pros that share a rejection of convention and a maniacal passion for gaming. Riot Games São Paulo is dedicated to creating tailored player experiences that show local players they aren’t lost in translation.
