GitHub eliminates its Indian engineering team

As part of Microsoft’s cost-cutting measures in response to weakening global market conditions, the popular developer platform GitHub has laid off nearly its entire engineering team in India.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the developer company has laid off more than a hundred workers in the South Asian market. On Tuesday, GitHub informed its staff that some positions would be eliminated. The layoffs were first reported by Pragmatic Engineer newsletter editor and former software engineer Gergely Orosz.

According to a GitHub spokesperson, this layoff is related to the company’s stated effort to streamline operations back in February. GitHub announced in January that it would lay off about 10% of its staff by the end of the March quarter.

According to the spokesperson, “workforce reductions were made today as part of the reorganization plan shared in February as part of difficult but necessary decisions and 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.”

When it comes to software development, India is a major player on the global stage.
