BENGALURU: Mumbai-based edtech startup Lido Learning has appointed Nishu Goyal as chief technology officer (CTO), said a company statement issued today.

Goyal, who will be based out of the Mumbai office, brings over 12 years of experience, and will be responsible for helping to evolve the company’s technology strategy and driving product innovation.

The announcement comes after Lido Learning received its Series A funding of $3 million.

Goyal joins Lido after serving as CTO for online healthcare startup PharmEasy, where he played an integral role in building their tech platform from scratch. He has also previously held the senior vice-president position at global e-commerce retailer Fab.com, a platform catering to everyday design, wearable technology, furniture and lifestyle products where he led the engineering team.

“Nishu’s previous experience and technical expertise make him the ideal choice to lead Lido Learning. Since edtech is becoming increasingly technology-focused and software-centric, to succeed, we had to build an interactive virtual classroom environment that runs in low bandwidth and on low-cost devices. Nishu will play a vital role in the planning and execution of Lido Learning’s technology roadmap while focusing on security and site integrity, data compliance, core architecture and testing,” said Sahil Sheth, founder and CEO of Lido Learning.

“The time for edtech companies has finally arrived in India. With the sector gaining immense traction already, technology has made a big impact in revolutionising the education market, facilitating and improving learning with ease and time,” said Goyal.
