Market Researcher - Strategic Advisory - Los Angeles , California, United States, 90001

Riot Games was established in 2006 by avid gamers who believe that player-focused game development can result in great games.

Players form the foundation of our community and it's for them that we continue to evolve and improve the League of Legends experience, and beyond!
