Vic Gundotra (born June 14, 1968), is Vice-President of Engineering for Google and was previously a general manager at Microsoft.


Gundotra joined Microsoft in 1991 and eventually became General Manager of Platform Evangelism. His duties included promoting Microsoft's APIs and platforms to independent developers and helping to develop a strategy for Windows Live online services to compete with Google's web-based software applications.[2]

Gundotra joined Google in June 2007, after taking a one-year delay working on charitable endeavors due to a Microsoft employee non-compete agreement. His responsibilities as Vice-President of Engineering include Google's mobile phone applications, and its developer efforts, including OpenSocial, Google Gadgets, Google Gears, and the more than 40 product APIs Google exposes.


In 2003, Gundotra was honored by Technology Review magazine in its Top 100 Young Innovator list (age under 35) for his contribution to Microsoft .NET Framework.[3]
