Nest co-founder Matt Rogers announces exit from Google
A day after Alphabet announced plans to roll Nest into its hardware team, co-founder Matt Rogers has announced that he’s exiting the company. The story was first noted by CNET and quickly confirmed by Rogers on Twitter.
Could just be social media talk, but Rogers’ brief statement on the matter appeared to imply that there were no hard feelings. “Nest has been an amazing journey and the honor of my career to build,” he wrote. “I could not be more proud of what we have all accomplished and can’t wait to see what’s next for Nest.”
After almost nine incredible, intense years working to build Nest, I've decided to begin my transition to dedicate more of my time to https://t.co/tA11al8OHU, as well as to start thinking about the next adventure.
