Food delivery platform Zomato saw another high-profile exit in the form of co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Gunjan Patidar. 

"Gunjan Patidar was one of the first few employees of Zomato and built the core tech systems for
the company. Over the last ten plus years, he also nurtured a stellar tech leadership team that is capable of taking on the mantle of leading the tech function going forward. His contribution to building Zomato has been invaluable," said Zomato in a stock exchange filing on Monday. 

On Monday, Zomato's shares closed 1.5% higher at Rs 60.25 apiece. 

Zomato, however, did not disclose reasons for his resignation.

In November last year, another co-founder of the company, Mohit Gupta, had resigned. Gupta, who had joined Zomato four-and-half years back, was elevated to co-founder in 2020 from the position of CEO of its food delivery business.

Zomato had witnessed some top level exits last year, including those of Rahul Ganjoo, who was head of new initiatives, and Siddharth Jhawar, the erstwhile vice-president and head of Intercity, and co-founder Gaurav Gupta.
