Earlier this week, we let go 15% of our workforce, or 12 people, in account management, Linux sys admin, Ruby/Rails app support, DB admin, and general business admin. This represented a change across several parts of the business and was part of a plan that includes new products and services.
We really appreciate the efforts of everyone at Engine Yard and we'd like to help provide opportunities for people we've let go, so we've set up an email alias for former Engine Yard employees and contractors.
This alias is opt-in, meaning that it goes to former Engine Yard people who told our HR department that they want to be included.
If you're interested in communicating with anyone in the group, just send an email to the following alias. Those who opted in will receive your email and reply if they're interested.
