GitHub is Laying Off 10% of Staff and Cutting Down Office Space

Thursday February 9, 2023. 08:15 PM , from Slashdot
Microsoft-owned GitHub is laying off 10% of its staff. From a report: In a message to staff on Thursday, GitHub's CEO Thomas Dohmke said that due to 'new budgetary realignments' the company must reduce the workforce 'by up to 10% through the end of FY23.' The company is also going fully remote, Dohmke wrote, telling staff they're 'seeing very low utilization rates' in their offices. 'We are not vacating offices immediately, but will move to close all of our offices as their leases end or as we are operationally able to do so,' Dohmke wrote.

'We announced a number of difficult but necessary decisions and budgetary realignments to both protect the health of our business in the short term and grant us the capacity to invest in our long-term strategy moving forward,' a GitHub spokesperson told Fortune in a written statement. The company declined to comment on whether these cuts are a part of Microsoft's layoffs that impacted 10,000 employees last month.
