According to the report, Asim Husain, the vice president of Google Developer Ecosystem, revealed the layoffs via email last week. According to the official's documents, this was his team's largest workforce reduction.

“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," he wrote in the email.

Google's parent company 'Alphabet' started cutting down the workforce from early 2023.

This layoff is the part of restructuring and cost cutting due to current inflation like situation in US. The company shifiting this postions out of US to countries like India & Mexico is gonna save them lot of labour costs.
