Android Open Source Tech Lead Heads to Yahoo
His new role at Yahoo is architect and senior principal engineer on the company’s mobile team, according to LinkedIn, yet another in a string of hires and acquisitions the company has made to bulk up its mobile team over the past year under CEO Marissa Mayer’s leadership.
Queru, who announced his move in a tweet on Tuesday, was formerly the Android Open Source Project tech lead, responsible for managing AOSP’s source code, among other duties.
Yahoo tweeted a confirmation on Tuesday morning.
Queru’s departure, as GigaOm first noted, is likely related to his frustration on issues surrounding work with Android hardware partners and driver compatibility issues. He wrote a public rant expressing his frustrations on his Google+ page last month, claiming that he was leaving Google as a result.
His first day on the new job was this week.
