Software company Autodesk is cutting its total global workforce by less than 2 percent, with about 250 workers affected.

A spokesperson for the San Francisco-based firm said the layoffs are part of Autodesk’s plans for its 2024 fiscal year, which began this week. As part of those plans, “we’re focused on ensuring that our resources remain well-aligned to support our key priorities for the coming year. As part of this process, we made the difficult decision to eliminate these roles, comprising less than 2 percent of Autodesk’s total global workforce.”

Autodesk, which had more than 12,600 employees as of 2021 and revenue of $4.39 billion in its last fiscal year, continues to hire across the company for many key positions, according to company spokesperson Christa Vu.

Autodesk, she said, “is dedicated to supporting impacted employees with severance, assistance in finding alternative jobs inside of Autodesk, and providing career services that will connect them to the resources, information, and people they need to pursue new career opportunities.”

Autodesk roles affected by the layoffs include a digital marketing operations project manager, digital marketing manager, technical marketing manager and web optimization manager, according to various posts by workers on LinkedIn.

Autodesk is a maker of software for architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media, education and entertainment industries.

Autodesk joins a slew of other tech companies, including Google, Microsoft and Amazon, paring back their workforces this year to deal with challenging macroeconomic conditions and the fading IT boom created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Autodesk stock has been soaring this year, rising 20 percent to $223.63 since Jan. 1, but still down 7 percent over the past 12 months.
