Network Engineer wanted for Riot Games

Job Position: 

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 Network Engineer, you’ll maintain and oversee every aspect of network infrastructure for Riot in Oceania. You’ll employ your expert networking skills to help safeguard servers, protect systems and keep invaders out of Riot’s series of tubes. As a stalwart net guardian, you’ll investigate emerging networking issues and maintain a healthy infrastructure so that every byte and bit that passes through the pipes is protected. When connections show signs of wear and tear, you’ll get your hands dirty and fix problems, leaving networks more resilient and efficient than how you found them.

As a Sydney Rioter, you’ll join a small team that shares our focus on player experience, rejection of convention and maniacal passion for gaming. With teams in Community, Esports and Marketing, Riot Games Sydney will create bonzer player experiences in and around League of Legends.
