Job Description

In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends and over 100 million people now play the game every month. Whether you're in Rio, Seoul, or Moscow, you can find an excited and engaged community of League players. Delivering content to a global audience of millions of players whilst also building new games affords Riot's Engineering discipline with a mountain of exciting and technically complex challenges. That's where you come in.

The League of Legends Reliability Engineering team is focused on building processes, systems, and tools to make the back-end services easier to operate. This includes databases, queues, several key microservices, caches, telemetry systems, and reporting tools. We also develop and support the pipelines and processes to build, test, and deploy the game - which touches nearly every team within the League of Legends organization and allows us to release the bi-monthly patches to tens of millions of customers around the world.

As an Engineering Manager on the Reliability team you will report into League's Sustainability Initiative Engineering Lead. In the role, you will offer creative solutions to organizational and software design. You'll serve as a mentor for multiple engineers, overseeing performance management, growth opportunities, and instilling balanced accountability models. You will also work with the other discipline leads to guarantee a clear vision is in place and that the team understands and executes against that vision.
