Late last night, Pinterest co-founder Paul Sciarra wrote a blog post confirming he would be leaving his day-to-day role at Pinterest. He’ll remain an advisor to the company.His post reads a lot like Naveen Selvadari’s, when he unhappily departed Foursquare a few weeks ago.
“After lots of reflection and plenty of discussion with Ben and others, I’ve decided that now is a good time for me to step down formally from day-to-day involvement,” Sciarra writes. “Of course, I’ll continue to be there for the company: now, as an advisor, an owner, and — as always — a dedicated pinner.”
Sciarra says he’ll be joining Andreessen Horowitz, the lead investor in Pinterest’s $27 million round last fall, as an entrepreneur in residence.
