Zoom Video Communications appointed Velchami Sankaranalingam as the President of Engineering and Products effective June 12.
Shankaralingam joined Zoom after more than nine years at VMware, where he was most recently Senior Vice President of Cloud Services Development and Operations.
Reporting directly to Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan, Shankaralingam will oversee the company’s engineering, product and dev ops teams. Zoom recently announced plans to expand its engineering team with 500 new headcounts located in Phoenix, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“Zoom has effectively grown to meet the demands placed on it by the global health crisis and is bringing meaningful changes in the work and lives of all those who use it,” Sankarlingam said.
“Given the scale at which we operate and the importance of communication happening on our platform, there is no time for delay and no room for mistake. Wellchamy will help our product, engineering and dev ops teams work as lockstep to support our ever expanding customer base worldwide, ”said Yuan.
