Bilimoria, who had also worked as senior product manager at streaming film and TV service Netflix, will join the research and deals team according to PandoDaily, which had the news confirmed by another employee of the firm.
In addition to LinkedIn and Netflix Bilimoria was the co-founder and CEO of in-page content recommendation engine Snip.ly, which closed 12 months ago after just over two years in business.
The news comes several weeks after Andreessen Horowitz reportedly saw its first general partner outside the firm’s founders step down from his investing role after three years.
John O’Farrell was tapped up shortly after the firm was launched by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz in 2010, but no longer wants to be a venture investor according to All Things D.
It said O’Farrell would continue to advise the firm’s portfolio companies on areas such as scaling, M&A and international expansion.
O’Farrell added that he was interested in growth investing, which did not tie in well with Andreessen Horowitz’s gradual shift towards seed and early-stage deals.
Andreessen Horowitz closed its third fund on $1.5bn in January last year, bringing its total capital under management to about $2.7bn.
