Lindsay ThackerProgram ManagerRiot Games

Since the wise age of nine and a half, Lindsay knew what she wanted to do. She didn't dream of being a doctor, an astronaut, or even a triceratops. She dreamt of being a game developer. With an unyielding interest in both art and programming, Lindsay graduated from Southern Oregon University with a degree in each field. She has expressed her passion for game development in the form of an award-winning student game project, volunteering at the Game Developers Conference, and excitedly passing along her knowledge as an instructor at iD Tech Camps. Her career has had a focus on QA, production, and training while working on titles such as Guild Wars 2, Gigantic, Plants vs. Zombies 2, and Starr Mazer: DSP. Lindsay joined Riot Games in 2017 and focuses on developing new training and career growth opportunities for Riot's technology department.
