Flipkart CTO moves to advisory role, engineering head quits

New Delhi, July 10: E-commerce major Flipkart today said its chief technology officer Amod Malviya will move to an advisory role at the company, and its engineering head Sameer Nigam has quit.

Nigam will start his own venture. Malviya, on the other hand, will now be a part of the advisory board that Flipkart has constituted to help manage the direct fast-paced growth that the company is witnessing.

A company spokesperson confirmed the development.

Flipkart had recently roped in Unilever executive Sudhir Sitapati as the first member of the advisory board.
