The Mozilla Corporation announced today it was laying off approximately 250 staff members in a move to shore up the organization's financial future.

Mozilla lays off 250 employees.

The layoffs were publicly announced in a blog post today.

Employees were notified hours before, earlier this morning, via an email sent by Mitchell Baker, Mozilla Corporation CEO and Mozilla Foundation Chairwoman.

Baker's message cited the organization's need to adapt its finances to a post-COVID-19 world and re-focus the organization on new commercial services.

Baker said that after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mozilla attempted to minimize the healthcare crisis' financial impact with "immediate cost-saving measures such as pausing our hiring, reducing our wellness stipend and cancelling our All-Hands [meetings]."

However, Baker said that Mozilla's "pre-COVID plan is no longer workable."

"We have talked about the need for change -- including the likelihood of layoffs -- since the spring. Today these changes become real," the Mozilla CEO said today.
