Former Digg VP Of Engineering Lands At Gilt Groupe
Well at least one former Digg engineer out there that had a happier Thanksgiving. We've gotten word that John Quinn, former Digg VP of Engineering, will be joining luxury discount marketplace Gilt Groupe as VP of Engineering come next Monday. Quinn will be working in the Gilt Groupe New York office under CIO Steve Jacobs. Prior to Gilt Groupe, Quinn had spent three years at Digg and before that was VP of Engineering at Squaretrade. According to our sources, Quinn was instrumental in the Digg v4 redesign and its problematic�move over to a Cassandra versus MySQL database.
