Tumblr’s VP-product and engineering, Derek Gottfrid, is leaving little more than a year after Yahoo bought the microblogging service.
A Tumblr spokeswoman confirmed the news, which was first reported by Business Insider, but declined to comment on the reasons for Mr. Gottfrid’s departure and or whether the company plans to fill the position.
Tumblr sold to Yahoo thirteen months ago for $1.1 billion. The portal doesn’t disclose Tumblr’s revenue in its quarterly earnings reports.
