Twitter’s Jinen Kamdar is all set to take over a model new function. Kamdar, who has been serving on the social networking platform for the past 7 years as its director of product, is now taking over as the Buzzfeed VP of product.
He is not going to begin his new job until Monday so he mentioned that it’s too early to know precisely what he’ll be working on.Although he did say he’s excited to collaborate with “all these proficient writers and producers” at BuzzFeed and construct tools to “no longer best create content material, but in addition very quickly learn the way the content is performing.”
Contemplating that the primary product in query right here belongs to a media entity — and is for a big half, the entity itself — this shift within the job description shouldn’t be as big because it sounds.
Primarily based in San Francisco, Kamdar will be splitting his time between BuzzFeed’s big apple, la and (to a lesser extent) SF offices.Chris Johanesen was previously working as Buzzfeed VP of Product. Kamdar has replaced him and he will be reporting to publisher Dao Nguyen.
Transferring from a tech firm like Twitter to a digital media firm like BuzzFeed would definitely appear to be a massive bounce, but according to Kamdar, there are some shared qualities between his old job and his new one.
“After I have a look at BuzzFeed, what attracts me are the issues that make companies like Twitter unique, too,” Kamdar stated.
Adding to the above, he said “They consider everything in first ideas. as a result of it’s a pure digital media play, they mainly embraced the web and cellular and social in a way that is unmatched in the media industry.”
