Google hires prominent EBay engineer - The Boston Globe - Boston.com - Technology - Business

Google hires prominent EBay engineer - The Boston Globe - Boston.com - Technology - Business: "Google Inc., the most-used Internet search engine, has hired Louis Monier, a prominent EBay Inc. engineer and founder of the AltaVista search engine, in the latest sign of Google's efforts to attract talent to compete with Yahoo Inc.
Monier said in a phone interview yesterday that he left his job as director of EBay's advanced technology group last week and will start work at Google next week.
Google's hiring of Monier, a native of France who worked in the 1980s at Xerox Corp.'s Palo Alto Research Center in California, underscores the company's push to hire prominent engineers to develop new products. Mountain View, Calif.-based Google in March hired Mark Lucovsky, one of the creators of Microsoft Corp.'s Windows NT operating system."
