Cyanogen Continues to Grow, and Hired Two Engineers Head of Qualcomm and Amazon

Although in recent times many of the news we read about Cyanogen have been evil, in the company responsible for CyanogenMod and Cyanogen OS don’t want to forget its goal of ending Google and get Android to stop relying on it, something if they want to suck will have to continue to grow.

That’s why in the last hours from the company have been announced two new signings star, two Galactic as we say here. Two of the engineers heads of such leading companies such as Amazon and Qualcomm, that it provide not only their knowledge, but the experience gained to have been working in leading companies in their sectors.

In this way, on the one hand we have to the former head of Amazon engineer Stephen Lawler, arriving to become Vice President Senior in engineering of Cyanogen, and on the other to another of the heads of engineering for Qualcomm, Karthick Iyer, who in turn will become the new Vice President of global systems.

The own Kirt McMaster, co-founder and CEO of Cyanogen Inc, has been very satisfied with the two additions, and has ensured that they are very important for achieving the objective of continue to develop Android, purpose for which it is necessary to count with the services of leading in the areas of services and systems such as Lawler and Iyer.

These two additions could not have come at a better time, since in recent times Cyanogen you are not going through the best moments, and has begun the year seeing how two of its most important partnerships they dissolved or had to choose to cancel their projects.

On the one hand and following the multiple problems that had with the OnePlus One updates and reverse which was for the Chinese company the agreement of Cyanogen with Micromax, Cyanogen Inc and OnePlus announced the end of their collaboration at the end of April. In addition, mobile had intended to throw together Alcatel, the OneTouch Hero 2 + with Cyanogen OS, also ended up being cancelled, although in this case, both companies said that they would continue working together in the future.

But as we have seen these setbacks have not diminishing minds of McMaster and his, which after receiving a major round of funding with so sonorous as Twitter names, Telefónica and Rupert Murdoch, and have reached an agreement with Microsoft to integrate their applications, continue adding muscle to his team with these two additions.
