Byju’s has announced the elevation of Jiny Thattil, who has been serving as senior vice president of Engineering at the company, as its chief technology officer. He takes over from Anil Goel who is leaving the company after three years as CTO.
This transition is part of Byju’s ongoing strategic restructuring and reorientation of its leadership team to further enhance operational efficiency.
With a career spanning over 25 years in the software industry, Jiny has demonstrated leadership and a deep understanding of diverse domains, including e-commerce, advertising, analytics, payments, online banking, personal finance, business intelligence, healthcare, and transportation.
He has also contributed to post-acquisition integration of various subsidiaries of BYJU’S. In previous roles, he has worked with marquee companies like Happay, Amazon, InMobi, GE Healthcare, etc.
Over the past few months, Byju’s has gone through restructuring exercises and has let go of a bunch of senior employees. Last month, Ajay Goel, who joined Byju’s as CFO in April this year, left the firm to rejoin Vedanta where he was working as the Group CFO since 2021.
