Jean-Paul joins us from Twitter where he played both senior product and engineering roles. A Silicon Valley native, Jean-Paul grew up in a family where the latest chip fabrication process was fodder for dinner conversation and week-night trips to HP Labs were par for the course. Prior to working at Twitter, Jean-Paul led teams at Yahoo! and Bebo.com/Aol.When not in the office, “JP” is likely to be found with his family at the Temescal Farmer’s Market, running trails in the redwoods, and hacking on iOS5 apps. Jean-Paul’s passion for food and education has led to his ongoing support of the Edible Schoolyard and the Chez Panisse Foundation. We are delighted to have him on board.
