Cyanogen is said to be considering shutting down its headquarters in Seattle. Moreover, the company is also planning to announce second round of layoff, according to a report from Android Police.
Citing source familiar with the matter, the report said Cyanogen co-founder Steve Kondik’s future at the company is unknown. The company is also reportedly giving select employees an option to move to the Palo Alto office which is smaller than the Seattle office. Earlier this year in July, Cyanogen laid off 30 out of the 136 employees which is about 20% of its workforce. The company also reshuffled its top level workforce where Kondik was removed from the board and was made the “Chief Science Officer” from the CTO.[wp_ad_camp_2]
Cyanogen Inc. will be shutting down its headquarters in Seattle and layoff more employees, today the company has announced that it will be shutting down all its services. It also said that Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued by the end of the month.
If you are using any Cyanogen-powered devices such as Yu Yureka, OnePlus One or ZUK Z1, you will not be getting future updates. You can move to CyanogenMod or any other ROM if you want latest updates. Now CyanogenMod will be 100% reliant on the community for development of latest Android builds.[wp_ad_camp_1]
Last month Cyanogen Inc. said that it has plan to consolidate Cyanogen’s sites into a single team in Palo Alto by the end of the year. It also said that it has separated ties with Steve Kondik, who was made the “Chief Science Officer” from the CTO recently.
On their official blog, Cyanogen Inc. said:
As part of the ongoing consolidation of Cyanogen, all services and Cyanogen-supported nightly builds will be discontinued no later than 12/31/16. The open source project and source code will remain available for anyone who wants to build CyanogenMod personally.
