Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

A Google engineering director and key player in the company's Chrome OS and WebGL projects has quit Mountain View in favour of a job over at Facebook.

Matthew Papakipos confirmed on Twitter yesterday that he had made the move.

"Now that Chrome OS & WebGL are in good shape, it's time for something new. I'm going to work @ Facebook! Love the product and team. Woot!" he blurted.

Papakipos is the latest in a series of Mountain View workers that Facebook has lured away. The firm's most recent ex-Googler was Nexus One phone product manager Erick Tseng.

The Mark Zuckerberg-led website also confirmed yesterday that it had hired VMWare veep Jocelyn Goldfein.

“We’ve landed two accomplished, senior people to join the Facebook engineering team - Matthew Papakipos and Jocelyn Goldfein,” said the company. “Both are about as accomplished as they come and we can’t wait for them to hit the ground running as key players on the team.” ®
