Google cuts at least 100 jobs across its cloud unit, CNBC reports

(Reuters) – Alphabet-owned Google is laying off at least 100 employees from several teams in its cloud unit, CNBC reported on Monday.

Roles in sales, operations and engineering, consulting and “go to market” strategy were some of the positions cut, CNBC said, citing internal correspondence.

Google did not immediately respond to a Reuters’ request for comment on the CNBC report.

The report comes months after the California-based tech giant laid off an unspecified number of employees across different teams in April as it cracks down on costs.

Google also laid off hundreds of employees in January following a slew of recent job cuts across the tech and media industry as companies grapple with economic uncertainty.
