Amy Cole

Role: Business operations

Cole joined the Instagram team shortly after she received her Masters in Business Administration, Marketing, and Strategy Consulting from (you guessed it) Stanford in 2011. Cole is an important component to the team because she was the first business hire. Cole has worked at big name companies like Chrysler, Del Monte Foods, and Sephora, so she presumably knows what it takes to maintain a voice at a larger company like Facebook.
