In the title compound, C20H29N5O4, the pyridine ring makes a dihedral angle of 10.41 (16)° with the triazole ring, which exhibits an azo-like character. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C-H...O and C-H...N hydrogen bonds, and C-H...[pi] interactions involving a methyl group and the pyridine ring of a neighbouring molecule, leading to the formation of a three-dimensional network.
