Online audio platform SoundCloud has lost its senior vice president of engineering, Richard Durnall, to freshly public Scout24. Durnall joined the German online classifieds giant earlier this month in a newly created capacity as CTO for the group, reporting to CEO Gregory Ellis, we've learned.

Previously, Richard was CTO for the REA Group ( and a Principal Consultant for ThoughtWorks, a global technology consultancy. According to his LinkedIn profile, he was only with SoundCloud for about a year.
