In this episode, we talk with Janelle Jimenez, best known as a Product Manager/Producer for Riot Games and most notably the product lead for some of League of Legends’ most successful skin lines, such as the K-pop inspired “K/DA” release. Janelle has taken a winding road to get into the games industry, rolling through such places as JET, Vocativ, High 5 Games, and the Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations. We chat about Janelle’s globe-traveling journey of self-discovery that led her to games, catch up on old times from her and Frank’s past when they went to University together, and talk extensively about what it means to be a product manager and lead in the industry.
