Google Maps engineer who pioneered Street View is now working for Lyft – The Verge

Luc Vincent, the senior executive of designing at Google, has been contracted by Lyft to lead the ride-hail organization’s maps and commercial center, division. He is the most recent Google Maps specialist to move to the universe of ride-sharing, where many organizations are staffing up their mapping divisions in light of a legitimate concern for making the craft of associating rider and driver as exact as could reasonably be expected. Vincent will work with Lyfts VP of designing, Subside Morelli, and boss innovation officer, Chris Lambert, to staff up the organization’s building division.

Key Takeaways:

  • Luc Vincent, senior director of engineering at Google, has been hired by Lyft to lead the ride-hail company’s maps and marketplace division.
  • Vincent helped pioneer Google Maps’ wildly popular Street View, which provides panoramic views of many of the world’s roads.
  • It’s really about rethinking transportation, rethinking how we move people and interact with the environment of the car.
