If you like building Software, then RiotGames is an awesome place to work.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Saint Louis, MO (US)
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Saint Louis, MO (US)

I have been working at Riot Games full-time for more than a year

Pros

- A flat organization, engineering driven culture.
- The company rewards risk takers that deliver awesome experience for our players.
- I get to have an impact on millions of players, how cool is that?
- I work with smart, passionate people. They make me a better engineer and developer and I am constantly trying to keep my skills sharp to keep up. I love it!

Cons

- The flip side of a flat organization is a bit of chaos. A bit of chaos can drive innovation, but sometimes it is a bit much. We're working on it.
- We need to improve our ability to create processes that help us build our game better and reduce errors in our pipeline.

    I have been working at Riot Games full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is the best job I have ever had by a long shot. I love working with such passionate, intelligent and fun people! The work is challenging and interesting and the sky is the limit in terms of personal and company growth. There is a growth path for everyone in the company that works hard. Rioters have the choice to contribute as an individual or grow into a leadership role, it’s up to each person – even the hiring and recruiting process is open for involvement. I was brought in as an engineer and now have been able to build and lead a team!

    The perks are great too – we do a lot of fun activities (e.g. movies, baseball games, weekend getaways, paintball, etc.). There is a great coffee machine and a kegerator at the St. Louis office :-D and travel perks include traveling to other Riot offices across the globe.

     Overall, a great place to work!

    Cons

    Honestly, not many cons come to mind. As with many companies that have experienced the amount of growth that Riot has in such a short time, we have growing pains such as the accumulation of tech debt. The tech debt is understood and being addressed.
