- Facebook is looking for a new CIO following Tim Campos' decision to leave to start a new company, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
- Campos plans to leave at the end of the year, after six years with the company.
- To fill the vacancy, Facebook is looking for someone with strong technical leadership and the ability to R&D with new enterprise systems, among other qualities, Campos said.
Campos first announced plans to depart Facebook in April, but at the time did not reveal what he planned to do.
"My journey at Facebook is not quite over yet and I will continue to help make the world more open and connected for a few more months," Campos wrote in a Facebook post. "I care deeply about the success of the company and have committed to help Facebook transition my organization to a new leader whom we are in the process of hiring."
Whoever is the next CIO will have to be prepared to support a global workforce that has to leverage technology for its more than one billion users.
Facebook is widely recruiting for a candidate, and posted the job opening on its website.
