As technology head, Peeyush worked on features such as Lite and in-app chat service Ping, along with product head Punit Soni. canned Ping a few months ago, and Punit quit.
 
Earlier this year hired Kalyan Krishnamurthy, who re-joined the team from Tiger Global earlier this year, to clean house, even as the VC was tightening its grip on Flipkart.
