    Id pick a different gaming company. Riot has a history of abuse and sexism.

      There were a few isolated cases and they were taken care of it. Don't believe everything you hear. There isn't a 'history of abuse and sexism'. There's a few bad actors at any large company over the course of time. Riot is literally the best and most tolerant place I've ever worked.

      I guess you're right. That way no company is good to work at lol. Any heads up for the interview test? What to expect? It's for an intern position

      Get familiar with coding in the hackerrank tool because there are some differences between it and an ide you don't want to struggle with during the interview. Other than that, don't stress. It is more about seeing your thought process and problem solving methods. The test isn't intended to be super hard.

      The alleged events were years ago. The walkout was unconnected with those and specifically targeted the forced arbitration clause in employment contracts. The clause has since been removed

      I'm also glad you have an agenda to push :)

      We aren’t claiming we had absolutely no problems, but we are claiming we had no systemic problems. My personal experience is the same on that.

      No your agenda is spreading old Internet gossip that you have no context on and no unique insight on and don’t know the truth level of in order to make someone have more anxiety about considering an internship here.

      baka_ probably has good intent... Who knows? I hope they are also looking at two things:
      1) Riot's listed changes that we have made before and since the article (many are very impressive)
      2) A just eye towards their own company

    The test is solid and fair. Don't do the "minimum possible". Try to be clever/creative. Hiring managers like to see people putting in the extra work.
    As for the "history of abuse and sexism", it was a few isolated cases years ago and a journalist with a hitlist.

      Alright, will keep that in mind! 😁 Also I'd rather believe someone who works there about the culture there. Thanks!

      Dude why not just answer OPs question and make your own thread for this

      You’ve got the roles mixed up and in many cases facts mixed up and a lot of that is ancient history. I’m not sure what point you are trying to make either. That riot has accountability where even the CEO can get in trouble for violating player rules? Or that we consider insulting players or wishing death upon them serious issues?

      Heaven forbid a company ever make errors in the gaming industry!? baka_ do you have any idea how easy it is for people in an empowered work environment to make mistakes? Have you ever made a mistake? Once a mistake has been made shouldn't there be consequences? Chaining together mistakes does not mean systematic. If that's what you've got for 10+ years of operating want to call out any of the massive amounts of good things we've done? Or is that against your narrative?

      I asserted maybe you have good intent above, but I'm beginning to think you are either inexperienced/unreasonably-idealistic or have an axe to grind. Or you're an angry player.

      If you're an angry player, we love you. Let us know how we can make your experience better. We've got some amazing stuff coming up!

    to actually answer the question, it's a coding test done on hackerrank, kind of like leetcode. if the code passes the minimum bar, someone at riot reviews the code. i think hackerrank is used for interns and fresh college grads. if you pass you will probably have an on campus interview

    if you wanted practice there are practice questions on hackerrank
