Zoom Video Communications has appointed Velchamy Sankarlingam as the President of Engineering and Product, effective June 12.

Sankarlingam joins Zoom after more than nine years at VMware, where he was most recently Senior Vice President, Cloud Services Development and Operations.

Reporting directly to Zoom CEO Eric S. Yuan, Sankarlingam will oversee the company’s engineering, product, and dev ops teams. Zoom had recently announced plans to expand its engineering team with up to 500 new headcount based in Phoenix, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

“Zoom has scaled impressively to meet the demands placed on it by the global health crisis and is making a meaningful difference in the work and lives of all those who use it,” said Sankarlingam.

“Given the scale at which we operate and the importance of the communications happening on our platform, there is no time for delay and no room for error. Velchamy will help our product, engineering and dev ops teams work lockstep to support our ever-expanding customer base around the world,” said Yuan.
