Another engineering star is leaving Yahoo, we’ve confirmed: Jonathan Trevor is moving on to Polyvore, a visual shopping search engine. Trevor, along with Daniel Raffel and Pasha Sadri, were the core product and engineering team behind the Pipes product, and Trevor also built YQL.
Polyvore was founded in late 2007 and has raised just over $8 million from Benchmark Capital, Matrix Partners and Harrison Metal Capital. Pasha Sadri is a cofounder of the company, so it’s no surprise that Trevor followed him there. We last covered Polyvore in December 2009.
Jonathan Trevor is currently working at Polyvore. Prior to this he was Senior Principal Software Engineer/Senior Principal Architect/Product Director at Yahoo where he was the principal engineer working on Yahoo Pipes and Yahoo YQL.
