Facebook’s Director Of Engineering For Ads Reportedly Heads To Quora

John Hegeman, Facebook’s Director of Engineering for Ads, is apparently leaving the company to join Quora. He posted to his private timeline Thursday that it is his last day at Facebook, according to TechCrunch.

Hegeman posted this message on his Facebook account:

Today is my last day at Facebook. I feel extremely fortunate to have spent five and a half years working with and learning from such an exceptional group of people. In particular, I want to thank Mark for building this incredible company and my managers Yishan, Kang-Xing, Greg, and Boz for all of the mentorship and opportunities that they have given me. The decision to leave wasn’t easy, but I’m very proud of all that the ads team has accomplished and I’m extremely confident that the team is in good hands. I look forward to seeing the great work I know they will continue to do. Looking forward, I’m excited to be joining the engineering team at Quora in a few weeks. I’m grateful to Adam for this opportunity to work with him and the rest of the team at Quora who are building an incredible product. I can’t wait to get started.”
