Photo Startup EyeEm Tempts Flickr’s Head Of Product To Berlin

EyeEm — the photo platform that is on something of a tear lately having done a deal with Getty after raising another $6M last year — has tempted Flickr’s former head of product across the Atlantic to join them in Berlin.

Markus Spiering will focus on product development and building on EyeEm’s expansion into the U.S. He was at Flickr from 2011, but this is a big loss for Flickr, as Spiering was highly respected at the company having worked there over nine years.

Spiering says he plans to help the team launch some “exciting new technology that will create unique user experiences.”
