Dropbox Downloads Facebook’s Lead Mobile Designer

One of the leading minds behind Facebook’s mobile-first push is leaving the company. TechCrunch reported that Rasmus Andersson, Facebook’s lead mobile designer, has taken a job at Dropbox, working with the design and engineering teams.

TechCrunch said that Andersson left Facebook this week. Dropbox, a cloud storage site, is expected to announce the hire sometime Friday.

Andersson has been with Facebook for the past two years, working with the social network on mobile design. Prior to his time with Facebook, Andersson worked for Spotify, essentially creating the music network’s interface and style.

As TechCrunch notes, this is not the first major Facebook designer Dropbox has hired. Previously, Dropbox hired Soleio Cuervo, the designer responsible for the like button.
