David Kaneda, creator of jQTouch and Sencha Touch, has announced he is moving to Benchmark Capital with the official title of Designer in Residence. Benchmark Capital is a venture capital firm based in Menlo Park, California.
David left Sencha a few months ago where he re-branded the company from EXTJS to Sencha as the Creative Director. Here’s what Kaneda had to say about the move to Benchmark:
I’m very excited to announce that I’ve taken a position as Designer in Residence with Benchmark Capital. For those who don’t know, Benchmark is an bay area, early-stage venture capital firm which has invested in some of the best products in the industry — Apps and services that I personally use every day, like Twitter, Uber, and Dropbox. We will be opening an office in San Francisco soon… This is an incredible time for software, both web and mobile, and I feel lucky as hell to be a part of it.
