Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers has quietly added a pair of junior partners to its early-stage venture capital practice: Swati Mylavarapu, who will focus on digital health and consumer tech startups, and Muzzammil Zaveri, who will both on consumer and enterprise tech startups.

Mylavarapu previously was with Square, the electronic payment company led by Twitter (TWTR) co-founder and interim CEO Jack Dorsey, which happens to be a Kleiner Perkins portfolio company. She had been there for around three years, most recently leading product marketing for Square’s premium software offerings. Mylavarapu previously led business operations and strategy for Square’s efforts in Canada and Japan and, before that, was head of sales and client services at enterprise intelligence company Quid.

Zaveri previously was part of the Silicon Valley investment team for Chinese Internet giant Tencent. Before that he co-founded Proxino, a Y Combinator-backed platform that helped users deploy and debug JavaScript code.
