Instagram Co-Founder Mike Krieger Joins Anthropic as Chief Product Officer

Anthropic has announced that Mike Krieger will be its new Chief Product Officer. Krieger co-founded Instagram with Kevin Systrom in 2010, which was subsequently acquired by Meta.

He brings valuable experience to Anthropic, having scaled Instagram to over a billion users and grown its engineering team to more than 450 people. Most recently, he co-founded Artifact, an AI news app that was acquired by Yahoo.

In a post on X, Krieger expressed his excitement about joining Anthropic, praising the team's exceptional talent, empathy, and pragmatism. He says he sees immense potential in pairing Anthropic's cutting-edge AI research with thoughtful product development to positively impact how people and companies work.

As Chief Product Officer, Krieger will oversee Anthropic's product engineering, management, and design efforts. His primary focus will be expanding the company's suite of enterprise applications and making their AI assistant, Claude, accessible to a broader audience.

Anthropic CEO Dario Amodei welcomed Krieger, "Mike's background in developing intuitive products and user experiences will be invaluable as we create new ways for people to interact with Claude, particularly in the workplace."

Krieger's appointment comes at a crucial time for Anthropic, as the company recently released the Claude app for iOS and announced support for Spanish, French, Italian, and German. With Krieger's expertise, Anthropic aims to accelerate its product development and compete with established AI giants in the industry.
