Snapdeal's woes are far from over. Merely few days after CFO Anup Vikal’s exit, its Chief Technical Officer Rajiv Mangla has called it quits, a company spokesperson confirmed on Saturday.


Mangla apparently resigned from his post on October 27 and will be transiting out of his role by December 15.

“Rajiv Mangla has played a key role in devising and implementing multiple technology initiatives at Snapdeal, including helping build Snapdeal Cirrus. His ability to continually align a range of on-going projects with the evolving business needs of the organization has been invaluable for Snapdeal,” Rohit Bansal, co-founder, Snapdeal said in a statement.

Snapdeal 2.0 has had a rough start with many top-level exits. Before Mangla and Vikal's departure, the four-member founding team of Unicommerce Solutions, Snapdeal’s technology solutions division—Ankit Pruthi, Karun Singla, Vibhu Garg and Manish Gupta—quit the firm.

Mangla, an IIT Bombay alumnus, previously worked at Adobe as senior director of engineering and vice president of engineering, digital marketing, for around a decade before joining Snapdeal. In his two-year stint as the technology head at Snapdeal, Mangla worked closely in leading both strategic and operational responsibilities, contributing significantly in building capabilities and driving innovation.

The e-tailer has already begun the search for a new CTO. “We will be further strengthening the technology team and expect to welcome new members including leadership hires, over the next few weeks,” Snapdeal spokesperson said.
