Android Loses a Pair of Senior Members

May 13, 2010

Senior Product Manager and Senior Software Engineer take flight.

Yesterday, Senior Android Product Manager Erick Tseng left Google for Facebook as the head of mobile products. Tseng worked at Google for four years, with previous stints at Yahoo and Microsoft.

Tseng announced his career change via his Twitter account. Tseng has a B.S. in Computer Science & Electrical Engineering from MIT and an MBA in General Management from Stanford.

On the heels of that announcement comes word that Cedric Beust, Android Senior Software Engineer is leaving for an undisclosed position at LinkedIn.

Beust worked for Google for six years, working directly on Java (he's written two books on the subject), then the Gmail team before joining Android. Beust graduated the Universite of Sophia Antipolis with a PhD in computer science.
No word yet on how Google plans to fill these two positions.
