The company’s Vice President, Asim Husain, announced the layoffs in an email sent to his team last week. Moreover, he reportedly told employees that it was set to be “the biggest planned reduction for his team this year,” according to documents.

“We intend to maintain our current global footprint while also expanding in high-growth global workforce locations so that we can operate closer to our partners and developer communities,” Husain wrote.

Early in 2023, Alphabet, Google’s partner company, announced it would eliminate a remarkable 12,000 jobs. Therefore, they would be set to slash 6% of its total workforce. In the latest action by Google at least 50 jobs will be eliminated from its California offices.
