It was reported by a leading daily, Rathnam was at odds with Uber’s Chief Product Officer, Sundeep Jain. The chief executive of Uber, Dara Khosrowshahi emailed the company’s employees about the departure. Khosrowshahi expressed his appreciation for Rathnam and his contributions to raising the engineering and talent bar at Uber.

Rathnam will supervise and assist for two to three weeks whereas the engineering leadership team of eight people will now directly report to Khosrowshahi. The re-structure of Uber’s engineering teams is still cloudy after Rathnam leaves and something to wait for.
