I could not be more excited to announce Antonio Silveira as Head of Engineering at Nextdoor.
Antonio will play a crucial role in creating a stable, scalable, and innovative platform to better serve our members. Antonio and his team will focus on building new products that enable neighbors to stay connected, while providing a platform for local businesses, national advertisers, government agencies, and other local organizations to better reach their audiences. Working closely alongside Nextdoor’s product, design, and data teams, engineering remains committed to establishing Nextdoor as the essential local platform for neighbors everywhere.
Most recently, Antonio was VP of Engineering at GoDaddy, developing product lines that empowered small business owners to build their online presence and grow their businesses, something he will continue to apply at Nextdoor helping local businesses and agencies to better connect with neighborhoods. Prior to GoDaddy, Antonio held leadership positions at Yahoo where he led engineering for products including Yahoo Mail, Messenger, User Profiles, and Interests, reaching hundreds of millions of users worldwide. Antonio also held engineering positions at Globo TV and RealNetworks working on the very first streaming media products nearly two decades ago.
Beyond Antonio’s impressive professional background, he has a personal connection to Nextdoor’s mission. Growing up in Brazil, he deeply believes in the power of a connected community and brings an international perspective to our purpose of building stronger local communities. When not working, Antonio is an avid cyclist who loves climbing the mountain roads in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Please join me in giving Antonio a warm welcome to the neighborhood!
