John Stauffer was the head of the Apple division behind CarPlay and Group FaceTime — and now he's leaving the company for Roblox.
Roblox is bringing in John Stauffer as a VP of engineering responsible for the virtual world's core engine. He will report directly to CTO Daniel Sturman.
According to a report from Axios, Stauffer was approached by Roblox about a year ago. He said it took a little bit to convince him, but his kids are excited at the prospect of his father building Roblox.
"John got to see Apple grow from a much smaller company," Sturman said. "That's a path we hope/want/expect to be on."
