At the most fundamental level, their goal is to help deliver value to players and make life harder for troublemakers.

Our team safeguards our player-impacting products, services, data, and infrastructure. Platform Security supports both cloud and bare-metal infrastructures by developing tools and providing guidance to engineers. We develop tools in Go, Python, and other languages that help Riot secure the platforms we use to deliver games to players.

  • As a support champion for Riot engineers you will develop relationships with engineering teams to understand their infrastructure security needs
  • Help develop and enforce security policies and standards to make it easier for Rioters to build security into their work
  • Stay aware of new security threats, quickly discern their nefarious implications, and suggest solutions to quash emergent issues or fortify against future problems.
