We’re very excited to announce that Gregor Hochmuth (@grex) is the 8th addition to our Instagram team! 

Greg studied computer science at Stanford. He worked at Hasso Plattner Ventures, a venture capital fund in his hometown Berlin, before returning to the Bay Area and working at Google as a product manager.

With over 2,200 beautiful images shared on Instagram, Greg has clearly developed a passion for mobile photography. “I’ve always taken many photos on my iPhone and Instagram is just an incredibly special & rewarding platform for sharing them. I’m beyond excited to help many more people share their experiences with the same joy, beauty and playfulness.”

When he’s not working on or using Instagram, Greg loves taking even more photos and will have his first photography show at a gallery in Toronto soon. Being the son of two film parents, he also loves movies, going to live music, and dreaming about New York.

We’re thrilled to have Greg onboard and are actively seeking more folks passionate about Instagram to join our team. Check out our Jobs page and if you think you’d be a good fit at Instagram, be sure to send an email to jobs@instagram.com
