Charlie Cheever grew up in Pennsylvania and went to high school there before enroling at the Harvard College, from where he graduated with a BA in Computer Science.
Cheever started his career as an employee at Amazon.com in Seattle, Washington, but soon afterwards he joined Facebook to work as an engineer and manager there. His superiors didn’t like the fact that Charlie oversaw the creation of the Facebook Platform and Facebook Connect, and so he left Facebook to start building a new company, with Adam D’Angelo. The company Quora was launched in June 2009, after the two of them came up with the idea of creating a Q&A website, where the users can exchange their knowledge and experience. It wasn’t a new concept, but Cheever and D’Angelo wanted to make a better quality site than the rest of the type already existing on the Internet, and they succeeded at it.
However, they didn’t have a traditional business plan, but the $11 million investment – courtesy of a former Facebook executive, Matt Cohler’s Benchmark Capital – helped Cheever and D’Angelo to start with their business. Rebekah Cox was their first employee, and she worked as a designer on the website, so they quickly expanded to 22 employees in the next couple of years. In May 2012, Quora raised $50 million, and the valuation of the company was $400 at the time. However, Charlie Cheever decided to step down from his managerial duties in September that year for reasons unclear, but opted to stay on as an advisor.
Most recently, he worked as the CEO of a startup company called Expo.io, which is specializing in translation machine for mobile app code.
Regarding his personal life, Charlie Cheever’s most intimate details such as marital status and the number of children are unknown, as he successfully manages to keep them out of the public eye.
