Facebook hires and departures: Timeline designer leaves; 27 other positions filled

Facebook product designer Nicholas Felton who was instrumental in the profile overhaul that became Timeline in 2011, announced today that he would be leaving the company after two years.

Felton joined the Facebook team through an acqui-hire deal of his company Daytum in April 2011. He is well known for his “Feltron Annual Reports,” which display detailed data about his personal activity and habits over the course of a year. He logs his sleep, meals, exercise, travel, work habits, time spent with other people, clothing choices, content consumption and more, then compiles it into unique visualizations. Facebook sought him out as they set out to redesign the profile to help users better share their lives and identities. He did not share what his plans were after Facebook.

Earlier this week, software engineer Brian Steadman had his last day with the company after nearly five years. Although he started at Facebook’s Palo Alto offices in 2008, he completed his time in the company’s Seattle engineering office.

In hiring news, former cloud strategist for Yahoo Sriram Krishnan announced that he was hired to work on product at Facebook.
