Yahoo has acquired Jybe. Founded by five former Yahoo employees in 2011, Jybe is a personalized recommendation startup that was in stealth mode.
Jybe co-founder and CEO Arnab Bhattacharjee was the VP of Yahoo Search Technology (YST). He returns to Yahoo, together with former key members of the YST and Hadoop teams — Tim Converse, Christian Kunz, Sameer Paranjpye, and Karthik Krishnamurthy.
Jay Rossiter (SVP, Cloud Platform Group): As a technologist, there are rare moments in your career when you get to be a fundamental part of the transformation of one of the most iconic companies on the Internet.
The Jybe app has been closed.
