Couple of Google VPs Leave
Alan Warren, Google’s VP of Engineering has left the company. He has joined health insurance startup Oscar as CTO. A Googler since 2004, Warren most recently led engineering for Google Docs and Drive. Before that, he steered Google’s New York office through its tremendous growth period — it ballooned from 50 engineers to over 3,000. Reliving that growth was part of the reason Warren jumped to Oscar. Warren also worked on Google Health, the search engine’s ill-fated attempt to centralize personal health records.
