Are you passionate about
creating amazing visual designs for the web? Love smartly scalable design that
loads fast and looks amazing, too? Think that combining high fantasy with clean
minimalism to create uniquely branded design solutions sounds like a challenge
to die for? Then let us introduce you to a Visual
Web Designer
role at Riot Games.
 
If you have a portfolio that
makes people’s jaws’ drop and a love for online games and the player
communities that surround them (esp. MOBAs and MMORPGs), then we’d like to talk
to you.
 
As a Visual Web Designer at
Riot you will have the opportunity to not only work with a team of “mad-skillz”
visual and UX designers but also collaborate with smart, passionate people
across the organization to raise the quality bar for League of Legends and
create strong design solutions for a range of League of Legends products,
including the LeagueofLegends.com website, Heads-Up Display (HUD), and
collateral assets to help evolve and maintain an aesthetic that is second to
none.
 
The bar is set high. Riot is
a fast-paced and results oriented environment and the Riot culture kicks some serious butt
(in a good way)! We love what we do and we have a lot of fun doing it.
 
Think you have what it takes?
Then go ahead and apply. You won’t regret it!
