Autodesk is laying off 250 employees, representing less than 2 percent of its global workforce.
The company said these layoffs are part of the plans for its 2024 fiscal year, where the company is “focused on ensuring that our resources remain well-aligned to support our key priorities for the coming year.”
San Francisco-headquartered Autodesk, which had more than 12,600 employees with $4.39 billion in revenue in its last fiscal year, will hire for many key positions.
The roles affected by the layoffs include digital marketing, technical marketing and web optimization.
Autodesk makes software for architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media, education, and entertainment industries.
The manufacturing industry uses Autodesk’s digital prototyping software – including Autodesk Inventor, Fusion 360, and the Autodesk Product Design Suite – to visualise, simulate, and analyse real-world performance using a digital model in the design process.
