(Reuters)-Uber’s chief technology officer, Sukumar Rathnam, has stepped down from the company’s engineering director, a spokeswoman for the ride-hailing company said late Tuesday.

A spokeswoman did not identify why Rasnam resigned, but Business Insider previously reported that he was in increasing conflict with Chief Product Officer Sandeep Jain.

A spokesman said Rasnam, who joined Uber about a year ago, will leave the company in early October.

Rathnam previously worked as an executive at Amazon. There, he led a team responsible for product selection and cataloging systems. Prior to Amazon, he worked for Microsoft and Oracle, according to his company background.

According to Business Insider, it was unclear how Uber’s engineering team would be organized after Rathnam left.
