Apple veterans and Humane co-founders Bethany Bongiorno and Imran Chaudhri announced the new hire:

Rubén’s belief in Humane’s mission to push computing forward, his alignment with our values of Trust, Truth, and Joy, and his excitement for our product vision is what propelled us to work together again. When it comes to the task of developing new kinds of technologies that empower people through connectivity, at scale, in the most efficient way possible, Rubén’s skill set and experience are unmatched. We are thrilled to have him on board as we build the next shift between humans and computing.
