Before starting Pepperfry, he worked at eBay as a country manager for more than five years in places like India, the Philippines, and Malaysia.
He also had a business where he taught people about money and gave advice. This was called Origin Resources and it was in Bangalore from 2003 to 2005, before he went to work at eBay.
Lots of people shared their sympathy for Murty on social media after his death was confirmed. Amarjit Batra, who’s in charge of Spotify in India, wrote on a website, “I’m really sad and surprised to hear this very sad news.
I hope his soul finds peace. I feel deeply sorry for his family and the Pepperfry team. We lost a wonderful friend and a great leader.”
