Square buys photo sharing outfit Viewfinder

04 December 2013  |  949 views  |  0 Source: Square

We are excited to announce that the Viewfinder team is joining Square. The team is incredibly talented, having built an app that blends beautiful design and highly technical engineering to create personal, human experiences.

This too is our mantra at Square, and the Viewfinder team's expertise in building simple, elegant mobile applications will help us in our mission to make commerce easy for everyone.

The Viewfinder team will work on seller initiatives out of our New York office. As senior members of our East Coast team, they'll help expand our NYC presence and achieve our goal of tripling the size of our engineering team in the city within the next year.

On a personal note, I couldn't be more excited to work again with Spencer, Peter, Ben, et al. Spencer and Peter first crossed my radar in the 90s when they created GIMP, the popular open source image editor. We crossed paths again at Google where they kindled the Google NYC engineering office and spearheaded key infrastructure like Google Servlet Engine and Colossus, Google's exascale distributed file system.

The team's passion, experience, and dedication to pushing the envelope makes them a perfect fit for Square, and we're thrilled to work with them.
