Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers has hired Megan Quinn as partner of the company’s digital group, where she will focus on consumer Internet investments. Quinn joins the high-profile investment firm from Square, where she was director of products at the mobile payments company.

She is joining a week after Kleiner’s Ellen Pao filed a lawsuit against the firm, alleging gender discrimination. Kleiner has said the allegations are without merit.
