Electric carmaker Tesla on Tuesday picked up Snap’s Vice President of monetization engineering, Stuart Bowers, as its VP of engineering, Cheddar reports.

Why it matters: Bowers is the latest in a string of almost a dozen top executives who have left Snap after its initial public offering early last year. The 3,000-person company's 27-year-old CEO and founder Evan Spiegel had said that all managers would be assessing their team sizes and locations amid several rounds of layoffs at the social media company.
