Anna Sweet is the latest Valve employee to join Oculus

The longtime Valve frontwoman has recently joined Oculus (alongside Google's Mary Lou Jepsen) and will be serving as the VR company's head of developer strategy going forward.

After more than six years on the job, longtime Valve frontwoman Anna Sweet has taken a job at Oculus VR as head of developer strategy, where a company blog post claims she'll be "building an ecosystem that rewards developers" for creating VR games and experiences.

Sweet was front and center for a number of Valve initiatives, including the launch of Steam Greenlight, the rollout of Steam Family Sharing and the 2014 Steam Dev Days conference in Seattle.

She's not the first notable Valve employee to move over, either -- last year saw Valve VR experts Michael Abrash, Atman Binstock and Aaron Nicholls make similar jumps.

She now joins Oculus VR alongside renowned optical engineer and former Google X display division chief Mary Lou Jepsen, who left Google to join Oculus VR parent company Facebook earlier this year.
