Gulli Leaves Ask.com For Microsoft Bing, Finally Has “Resources”

Ten days ago, we reported that Antonio Gulli left Ask.com after 4 years heading up their technology team in the European R&D center. Gulli announced his new plans are to continue in search, but switch ships and work for Microsoft Bing.

Gulli said he will be “leading all the engineering development for UX and verticals in Europe,” focusing on Microsoft Bing’s search technology and user interface. He will be working at Microsoft’s London site of STC Europe nearby Carnaby Street.

What I found most interesting about his announcement post was that he, in not so many words, explained that he now has the resources needed to make a difference in search. The way I read it was that he felt that at Ask.com, he didn’t have enough resources to accomplish his goals. Gulli said that at Microsoft “you get the resources to experiment with it.”"Search is all about continuous improvements and evolutions, isn’t it?” Gulli added.

Congrats on the new job Antonio, it seems like you will be happy at Microsoft.
