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.

You'll be working closely with publishing, production, communications, creatives, entertainments and other internal team, and provide advice to bring our products to Chinese players. You will ensure the contents we provide to players are fully in compliance with government policy and local law. You will be able to work with internal and external teams on game license application to manage the whole process and help our current and future games to obtain the necessary licenses.
