Media reports said GitHub is also shutting down offices and will move to remote work culture.

GitHub CEO Thomas Dohmke, in an email to employees, said sustained growth is important for every business.

GitHub, a leading open source developer platform, is used by 100 million developers.

“We must become the developer-first engineering system for the world of tomorrow. We must continue to help our customers grow and thrive with GitHub, expedite and simplify their cloud adoption journey, while supporting them every day,” Thomas Dohmke wrote.

“We are seeing very low utilization rates in our offices, and this decision is a testament to the success of our remote-first culture. We are not vacating offices immediately, but will move to close all of our offices as their leases end or as we are operationally able to do so,” Thomas Dohmke said.
