webOSroundup: HP Lays Off 250 from webOS Division

1 post in this topic

HP has announced it has laid off close to 270 employees from its webOS division, mostly engineering positions relating to getting webOS to work with hardware that it feels it “no longer needs.” The announcement comes as it makes its transition to open source, further reducing a headcount of roughly 500 webOS employees that remain, and following the departure of Jon Rubenstein this past January.

HP’s statement is below:

As webOS continues the transition from making mobile devices to open source software, it no longer needs many of the engineering and other related positions that it required before. This creates a smaller and more nimble team that is well-equipped to deliver an open source webOS and sustain HP’s commitment to the software over the long term.

HP is working to redeploy employees affected by these changes to other roles at the company.
