Mosseri had been Instagram's head of product and previously led the company's News Feed division. He has also served as design director for Facebook's mobile apps.
Instagram co-founders Systrom and Krieger said in a joint statement: "We are thrilled to hand over the reins to a product leader with a strong design background and a focus on craft and simplicity -as well as a deep understanding of the importance of community."
According to CNBC, their departure was a result of frustrations over Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg's excessive interference with Instagram.
