Riot Games have announced that they are opening a Sydney-based office to help support the further global expansion of their ridiculously popular title, League of Legends.

“Riot Games Sydney is official. Known for its beaches, opera house, sports scene and friendly-looking marsupials, we’re excited to introduce a little bit of riotousness to Australia’s biggest city,” reads the announcement. “With teams in marketing, esports and community, Sydney Rioters will craft unique experiences on the web and on the ground to support the growing League of Legends community in the Oceania region.

“The best part? We’re just getting started. Riot Sydney will have much more to share soon.”

The Sydney-based office is hiring for an eSports Coordinator and a Community Manager.

Aussie servers where?

I’d like to think this is precursor to Aussie servers…

I’d totally love to apply for the Community Manager position, but alas no experience :(

 

maybe finally an aussie server? i have experience for community manager :) but 40 is too old for a drastic career change
