Job Description
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 video 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.

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 products into players' hands. You'll exceed expectations by helping concept, deliver, improve, and influence creative projects at every stage of production.

As a Senior Game Producer on an Unpublished R&D Product, you will report to the Executive Producer and work with our developers to lead production efforts in bringing the game to market. You will work with developers and internal partners at Riot. You will ensure that the team is set up for success at every stage of project development from: prototype and pre-production to launch and beyond as a key member of the development team.

As a Rioter in China, you'll join a team of internationally and culturally diverse professionals that share our prioritization of player experience, rejection of convention and maniacal passion for gaming.

To reinforce Riot's collaborative culture in our China offices, we've decided to do away with the constraints of traditional hierarchical title structures that are more common in the region. Titles don't really matter at any of Riot's offices, but we chose to take this extra step in our China offices to foster a space where teamwork thrives. We believe that removing this constraint will promote individual autonomy, ownership, collaboration, and a focus on results. We promise you won't need a title at Riot to make an impact.

Responsibilities:
• Translate the product strategy into a roadmap for large product experiences throughout the game development cycle
• Work closely with the product leadership and designer POs to ensure the vision for the product and features is clear, and align the team behind it throughout execution
• Lead the prioritization and creation of the backlog and product roadmap
• Work closely with the Executive Producer to set and measure OKRs against goals, ensuring optimal player value
• Lead all production aspects and tasks in your areas of responsibilities, and ensure the timely and predictable delivery of great player experiences
• Provide essential product feedback and insight to the team and leadership
• Proactively identify issues standing in the way of success (people, product, process), provide strategies for tackling them, own their resolution and evaluate results
• Build and maintain healthy and sustainable partnership with all partner teams
• Ensure optimal team health, culture, and efficiency

Required Qualifications:
• 5+ years of experience in the gaming industry with experience leading and coordinating live game development and operations
• Good understanding of players' preferences and behaviors, especially in card games and tabletop games
• Experienced in manufacturing, retailing and marketing of consumer products, with comprehensive knowledge of the business model
• Experienced management and relationship-building skills
• Experience building high-quality relationships and communications with players
• Experience scheduling and tracking development. Find and address risks associated with key-milestones both for our teams and external teams

Desired Qualifications:
• 7+ years of experience in the gaming industry with experience coordinating live game development and operations
• Fluent in Chinese and English, and can promote collaboration across language and culture
• Experience managing diverse, remote, cross-cultural or cross-discipline teams / partners to achieve a common goal
• Experience as a designer or engineer or as an artist

Don't forget to include a resume and cover letter. We receive a lot of applications, but we'll notice a fun, well-written intro that shows us you take play seriously.

For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise, a collaborative spirit, and decision-making that prioritizes the delight of players. We will be looking at your past studies, experience, and your personal relationship with games. If you embody player empathy and care about the experiences of players, this could be the role for you!
Our Perks:

Riot Games fosters a player and workplace experience that values teamwork embodied by the Summoner's Code and Community Code. Our culture embraces differences as a strength, and our values are the guiding principles for how we approach work. We are committed to putting diversity and inclusion (D&I) at the center of everything we do, and promoting a fair and collaborative culture where Rioters treat one another with dignity and respect. We encourage you to read more about our value of thriving together and our ongoing work to build the most inclusive company in gaming.
