Google Maps engineer leaves for Microsoft — report
That’s the claim made by TechCrunch, which claims to have a source that’s confirmed Raj Shah has moved on.
A Google Maps engineer that reportedly worked on bringing accurate
map data to the platform is on his way to Microsoft, according to a new
on Thursday that Raj Shah, a Google Maps engineer, has moved on to
Microsoft, where he will presumably work with the company on Bing Maps.
According to TechCrunch, Microsoft confirmed his hire to its reporter.
Shah’s LinkedIn page
still lists his title as Engineering Director at Google. He started with the search company in March 2006.
CNET has contacted Microsoft to confirm Shah’s hire. We will update this story when we have more information.
