Growth Manager

Riot Games - Dubai, Emirate of Dubai

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 PC 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 Player Growth Manager focused on player lifecycle, you'll carry the torch for efforts to acquire and reactivate players. You'll be responsible for ideating, building, running, and analyzing campaigns that present League of Legends in resonant ways to bring back players who have churned out of the game. You have years of experience with marketing planning, audience strategy, and channel planning, coupled with strong analytical and creative thinking.

As a Dubai Rioter, you’ll join a small team that shares our obsession with player experience, rejection of convention, and maniacal passion for gaming. Riot Games Dubai is dedicated to creating unique player experiences that show Middle East players they aren’t lost in translation.
