QA Engineers are champions for quality, focused on testing in service of a holistic understanding of Riot's projects. They create test plans and evaluate both the functional and subjective caliber of projects for a Riot development team. As every project is different, they listen and improve, to put the players and their team first, and to solve ambiguous and complex problems. Most importantly, it's their passion and love for quality that ensures that QA Engineers help us level up and improve our processes, giving players the best experiences while playing our games.

As a QA Engineer II for an unpublished R&D product, you'll join the Build Verification Test Team where you will support the QA process for multiple areas and teams. You will work with software engineers, content developers, artists, producers and project managers to create value for Players around the world by running complex tests and designing processes for efficient testing across multiple platforms. You will be guided by Riot's Test Policy to ensure the execution of quality activities at every stage of the software development life cycle. You will also be tasked to work with other QA professionals, often remotely to get your work completed. A QA Engineer II will typically report to a QA Manager or Senior QA Manager.


  • Your execution of quality activities (testing, risk assessment) impacts the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of the teams you support as well as the whole product.  You will have specific recommendations for improvements on the development process and quality of the products you work on.
  • You solve complex problems by innovating on best practices, and implement new ways of approaching  and mitigating quality risks. 
  • You need little instruction on day-to-day work, and you are able to operate independently, while also instructing other QA and external testers in their day to day tasks. 
  • Your skills show expertise in one area, and you are able to deploy a variety of craft elements to solve increasingly complex problems.

Required Qualifications:

  • Experience designing and executing test plans.

For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise, a collaborative spirit, and decision-making that prioritizes the delight of players.
