Yoky Matsuoka is back at Alphabet Nest after a short stay at Apple

By : |January 24, 2017 0

After a brief stint at Apple, Silicon Valley’s robotics whiz is coming back to Google’s parent Alphabet as CTO of Nest, its smart-home subsidiary, reported Recode on Monday.

Matsuoka joined Apple last May to work on its health initiatives and according to Bloomberg, she left that role around the end of the year before dashing back up at Nest.

Matsuoka has a long history at Google, first joining the company in 2009 to help found the Google X lab. She left there just a year later to be the head of technology at Alphabet subsidiary Nest. She later left to be CEO of health-data startup Quanttus, where she worked for about a year, according to her LinkedIn profile.


Although her new designation is different from her previous role at Nest, the company says that the CTO position is a new one and Bloomberg reports that she “will work closely with Nest’s engineering and product teams to define a long-term technology roadmap” and will be responsible for “identifying important enabling technologies for Nest products and services, such as sensors and machine learning, while partnering with outside companies.”
