Design lead Jen Folse leaves Apple to get Caffeine-ated

Jen Folse, an Apple exec who served as lead designer on a number of projects including tvOS, has left the tech giant to take a senior role at live social broadcasting startup Caffeine.

In a statement to AppleInsider, Caffeine said the now former Apple TV executive will lead the startup’s product experience, roadmap, and product design team. Folse confirmed the move in an update to her LinkedIn profile, which notes an transition this month from Apple to Caffeine, where she will serve as vice president of Product. 

At Apple she worked as a senior design producer from May 2010 to March 2016 and as a design lead from April 2016 to her recent departure. Folse has a B.S. in bioengineering from the University of California San Diego.

Caffeine is described as “a new way for you and your friends to enjoy and create live gaming, entertainment, and creative arts broadcasts.” It offers a feed that shows what your friends are creating and watching.
