First it was Android’s co-founder and CEO, Andy Rubin, now it’s Android’s vice president Hugo Barra who called it quits with Google. Hugo said he is moving to join Xaiomi after spending 5 years working with Google.
He posted this on his Google+ page today:
“After nearly 5½ years at Google and almost 3 years as a member of the Android team — the most amazing group of people I’ve ever worked with in my life — I have decided to start a new career chapter.
In a few weeks, I’ll be joining the Xiaomi team in China to help them expand their incredible product portfolio and business globally — as Vice President, Xiaomi Global. I’m really looking forward to this new challenge, and am particularly excited about the opportunity to continue to help drive the Android ecosystem.
It has been an amazing ride and true honor to be part of the Android team at Google, and I especially want to thank, , and for their phenomenal support and mentorship over the years.
team, I will truly miss you all!”
Hugo attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology and lives in San Francisco, California. Google is expected to announce a replacement for Hugo Barra very soon.
