Chris Fry, Twitter Inc.’s senior vice president of engineering, has moved from his executive position at the social network to an advisory role, according to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Alex Roetter, Twitter’s vice president of revenue engineering since March 2013, will take over Fry’s position, which oversees Twitter’s engineering teams, the filing says.

Roetter had been in his prior position, which oversaw the social network’s Advertiser, Publisher and Exchange engineering team since last year. He has also held a variety of other engineering roles at Twitter since he joined the company in 2010. Prior to Twitter, he was director of engineering at Laufer Wind Group, a company that develops radar technology for renewable energy applications. And from 2002 to 2008 he was a Google Inc. software engineer at Google Inc., where he worked on AdSense.

With his promotion, Roetter's base salary is $250,000, according to the filing.

Fry was awarded $10.1 million in stock options  following Twitter’s initial public offering last year. He served as Twitter’s senior vice president of engineering since March 2013, previously having held the title of vice president of engineering.

Twitter’s vice president of product development left in January.
