About Bret Taylor

April 18, 2017

I am currently the CEO and co-founder of Quip, which I started in late 2012 with my friend Kevin Gibbs. Quip was acquired by Salesforce in August 2016.

Before Quip, I was Chief Technology Officer of Facebook for three years. Previously, I was the co-founder and CEO of FriendFeed. Facebook acquired FriendFeed in August 2009.

Before starting FriendFeed, I was at Google for four years, where I co-created Google Maps and the Google Maps API. After Google Maps, I started Google's developer product group.

I have a BS and MS in Computer Science from Stanford University.
