Jonathan Thompson still has a stake in video-platform play Delve Networks, but he’s found a slightly better funded venture.
Thompson, Delve’s co-founder and chief architect, left for Kiha Software, a Paul Allen venture developing a user experience platform for mobile devices.
At least that’s how Kiha appears to describe itself at its Web site.
Thompson (at left, in a Delve pic) was previously director of architecture in Amazon.com’s Web services group and director of architecture at BEA Systems. He started Delve with Alex Castro after they met at Amazon and his brother continues to work there as a developer.
Delve VP Alex Alben confirmed the details and said it was a friendly separation.
“It was very mutual. He’d been here for a long time and made a great contribution to the company,” Alben said.
Delve’s “been hiring lately. We’ve got a lot of excellent people,” he said.
The company has 15 employees and is still “good” on the funding front.
