Another Departure — Mixer Co-founder Matt Salsamendi Leaves Microsoft

By Sean Carey,
With Mixer securing Ninja — arguably the biggest streamer in the video gaming world — the streaming platform is currently having a shakeup behind the scenes as co-founder Matt Salsamendi has announced his departure. He follows corporate vice president Mike Ybarra and Mixer's other co-founder James J. Boehm.

Microsoft acquired Salsamendi's Beam back in 2016, and the streaming site has grown in scope significantly since then. It's currently unclear what Salsamendi will be working on, but his statement mentions something with lasers.

Salsamendi's departure comes just eight days after Mixer's other co-founder, James J. Boehm tweeted that he was leaving Microsoft too.

With both founders and the corporate VP for Mixer all leaving, it will be interesting to see what the future hold's for the live streaming platform and what direction Microsoft decides to take it in.
