Cyanogen Inc. revealed last month that it would undertaking an executive reshuffle and change its strategy with Cyanogen OS. Instead of selling it as a standalone platform, Cyanogen rolled out what it called the "Cyanogen Modular OS program," giving handset manufacturers the ability to selectively choose individual portions of the OS.
It now looks like the company is now preparing for another round of layoffs — its second this year — and a possible closure of its Seattle headquarters. That's according to Android Police, citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter.
There's no mention of how many positions are affected, but it looks like a few employees are being offered the option to relocate to Cyanogen's Palo Alto office. The report also claims that Cyanogen cofounder Steve Kondik's future at the company is unknown. Last month's reshuffle saw Kondik lose his seat at the board and transition from CTO to "Chief Science Officer." We should be hearing more from the company in the coming days.
The move won't hamper the development of the community-driven CyanogenMod, which is independent of Cyanogen Inc.
