Mozilla fires 250 employees due to coronavirus
The coronavirus epidemic caused shrinkage in many sectors. However, companies from the internet sector, on the contrary, have managed to grow their user base.
Mozilla was among the rare companies that failed to achieve this success. Mozilla, the popular of the internet world with its browser called Firefox, is going through a very difficult period due to the epidemic.
While Mozilla’s losing its user base for a while was effective in this downsizing, the increasing costs put the company in a difficult situation. Having been in a difficult situation in employee spending due to costs, Mozilla decided to terminate 250 jobs in the first place. In addition, after these layoffs, organizational changes will be made in the company. It is stated that this development basically aims at improving business processes faster.
