Niket Desai left search engine giant Google Inc to join Flipkart in April 2015. After wrapping up with his previous venture Punchd, which was acquired by Google, in Silicon Valley, Desai came to Bangalore to take over as chief of staff at the e-commerce company. However, his stint at Flipkart ended in one year. Desai quit the company along with Flipkart’s former chief product officer Puneet Soni. Going by Desai’s Linkedin profile, he seems to have returned to the Valley.
