Tim Catlin leaves Zynga
Social gaming company Zynga has confirmed that general manager Tim Catlin has left the company to take up the role of vice-president of engineering at the Change.org social change platform.
In his new role, Catlin will lead the company’s engineering team with responsibility for the platform’s personalisation experience and mobile development.
Catlin first joined Zynga in 2010 as divisional chief technology officer, initiating the company’s advertising platform business and overseeing the development on the company’s website, rewards programme and various APIs and services used by Zynga games.
In 2012, he was made general manager of Zynga.com and developer experience for the company’s third-party platform.
“I have helped build many technology platforms, but never one with a mission to empower people everywhere to make change,” Catlin said. “Change.org’s track record is already impressive, and I am excited to see how we can use mobile, personalisation, and other innovations to make an even greater impact.”
