Your experiences may vary considerably from mine, as I’m sure different recruiters and employees will have differing methods. That said, this is my experience thus far.
I started by checking out the Riot Careers website, and while browsing through I found a position that I thought would suit me - Fraud Investigator. I exceeded their stated requirements (degree and experience) and figured this would be a great fit at one of the best companies I could hope to work for.
My application process consisted of two parts - physical and digital. I figured that a simple digital application wasn’t enough to grab anyone’s attention, and that Riot was a highly competitive arena to be hired in. So in addition to my online application, I mailed them a package containing my resume, a cover letter, and a custom-painted Nintendo DS with Pokemon Fire Red, which I had hacked to contain references to my resume, Riot Games, and fraud-related things.
I sent the package around February 6th, and received a reply email on the 19th from a Riot recruiting coordinator. She set me up with an interview with some people from my department over Skype about a week later.
This is a list of the interview questions, as best I remember them, in no particular order:
The whole thing took about 45 minutes over Skype, and consisted of me talking to 2 Rioters. It was very relaxed, with a laid-back atmosphere. I think I was perhaps a bit nervous, and I worry that it showed through, but I hope that’s to be expected and taken into consideration.
I put an asterisk*** near the only question I know I botched. At Riot, feedback is a gift. My answer went like so: were it a small problem, I’d likely step up and ask if I could help, but for larger problems I’d talk to a supervisor. I knew going in to the interview that Riot was a flat (rather than hierarchical) company, but it fled my brain when they asked that question. I should have said that I would tell them flat out, but I had a brain fart. It’s a big part of Riot culture, and one I’m actually looking forward to a lot, should I get the chance to join.
The day after the interview, I got an invitation to do an online test, the details of which I think it probably best not to talk about. After this, we’ll see how things go!
Questions? Leave an ask!
Just did my initial interview with Riot Games today. They said they’d likely get back to me within a week or so. So, now I’ve got that worry to consume my every waking moment from now on.
House of Cards finale and some hot cocoa in my heart mug. Not a bad Sunday evening~

This kindergarten in Yangsan is like a place I used to work, only on crack. I worked a party/event, welcoming kids to the English Village. They had a full on bouncy castle and 3 full floors of classrooms - about 200 kindies.
My brother helped me out with my application to work at Riot Games! He did the custom paint job on the DS. Inside is a hacked Pokemon ROM, which I modified to include facts about myself and all the reasons they should hire me. Here’s hoping it makes an impact…
