Facebook Hires and Departures: Google’s Creative Director, Quora, and More

Facebook hired some analysts and interns this week, lost a few recruiters and is in search of software engineers, according to the company’s LinkedIn feed and other sources. And its former Tech Recruiter and Team Lead Andy Barton announced recently that he left the company for Quora.

But most prominently, Google creative director Ji Lee has officially confirmed on his web site that he has moved over to take the same title at Facebook (he’d mentioned the move during a talk a couple weeks ago, but hadn’t said much beyond that). Facebook has never had a creative director before, so we’re checking with the company to get a better sense of what Lee will be working on. You can see some of his previous work here and here.
