Former Pandora CTO Tom Conrad Lands at Snapchat

Snapchat has hired former Pandora CTO Tom Conrad as its new VP of product. The news of Conrad’s hire was first reported by Recode on Tuesday, and subsequently confirmed by the company.

“We’re excited to welcome Tom to the Snapchat team,” a company spokesperson told Variety. Conrad started earlier this week at Snapchat.

Conrad worked as CTO and EVP of Product at Pandora from 2004 to 2014, and was key to the growth of the company and the build-out of its products across the Web, mobile, automotive and connected devices.

It’s an interesting time for Conrad to join the company; Snapchat is reportedly shaping up for a public offering and aiming to significantly grow its revenue.

Plus, it may actually be looking to launch new products, or at least target new platforms for its service: Snapchat has quietly been hiring wearable technology experts over the past few months, according to a recent Cnet report.
