Astronomer announced layoffs for 76 employees recently, which means around 20 % of the workforce of their total headcount.
Astronomer company CEO says” Today, we are announcing some of the most difficult changes we’ve made at Astronomer. We have decided to reduce our team by over 20% and to let 76 of our valued colleagues go. We will also be evolving our leadership team and simplifying our organizational structure. I want to take accountability for the set of decisions that have led to this point. As difficult as I know today will be for everyone, I’d like to first apologize to those who are impacted.”
