Facebook hires and departures: designer and managing editor leave, Legit team hired

Facebook had some fairly high profile departures this week, with designer Rasmus Andersson joining Dropbox and managing editor Dan Fletcher announcing he will leave to work on personal projects instead. Malorie Lucich, who has been the platform communications team since 2008, is going to Pinterest.

Unrelated to those vacancies, Facebook has hired Jeremy Barton and Rob Boyle, cofounders of cross-platform reputation system Legit. This was not an acquisition or acqui-hire, but it does mean Legit will be shutting down. The two did not say what area they would be focused on within Facebook.

The social network also removed 27 job listings from its careers page this week, likely after filling roles in measurement, sales, recruiting and other areas.
