Snapchat’s VP of Product, Tom Conrad is exiting the company

By : |January 25, 2018 0

Snap is losing its vice president of product, Tom Conrad, according to a report from TechCrunch. Conrad, who joined Snap almost two years ago, oversees Snap’s product teams, and his departure doesn’t come at an ideal time considering Snap is in the midst of rolling out a big redesign.

Conrad told TechCrunch, “I started making software when I was 18 years old, and it’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for 30 years. It’s time for me to put my energy outside of tech, into music, food, photography and things closer to art than entrepreneurship. It’s easy to put these things off forever but I didn’t want to wake up 10 years from now and not have explored these other passions of mine.”

Before joining Snap, Conrad spent a decade at music streaming service Pandora, first as the company’s VP of product and later as its CTO. Conrad is also on the board of directors of smart speaker maker Sonos.

Jacob Andreou, Snap’s growth director and a former designer at the company, will take over Conrad’s role, though his title hasn’t been set, according to TechCrunch.
