We’re Riot New Media Group.

We create content-driven communities around niche interests that delight fans and celebrate their diversity.

Our Mission

We’re dedicated to the idea that writing about books and reading should be just as diverse as books and readers are. We began with the goal of leading a new discussion around books, readers, and publishing. Individually and collaboratively, we do the work each day to innovate fresh content and services to our readers, amplify marginalized voices, and challenge ourselves and our community to be inclusive.

What’s It Like to Work at RNMG? 

Our values inform every aspect of our business, from internal policies and communication to the content we create to our relationships with our clients and audiences. 

We show up with integrity, work in good faith, and assume that others are doing the same. We are transparent in our daily work and decision-making through our practice of open-book management that provides all employees with a foundational understanding of the company’s financial health. We are accountable to each other, our clients, and our communities. When we make a mistake, we own it, fix it, and move on. 

We strive to create a culture that supports growth, collaboration, and creativity through cross-team working groups, coaching and mentoring, and annual stipends for professional development. We use the tools of Radical Candor™ to maintain open dialogue because we believe that clear, kind feedback is essential for long-term success both individually and collectively. 

We cultivate work-life harmony by offering flexible scheduling and work-from-home options, enabling employees to be fully unplugged outside of business hours, and encouraging use of PTO. We honor autonomy by valuing results over time spent at your desk, and we trust employees to manage their time appropriately.

Our work environment is casual and welcoming. We take our work seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. We are curious, generous, and on each other’s side.
