Peter Kim Frank for The DEV Team

Posted on

DEV Team Update

Earlier this week, we made the difficult decision to reduce the size of the DEV team. While we’ve undergone rounds of layoffs in the past, this has been especially painful. We’re saying goodbye to some of the core team members who have been absolutely critical in shaping DEV towards what it is today.

Our highest priority is to serve our global community while ensuring that we do so sustainably in the long run. We remain committed to fostering an inclusive and constructive environment and will be re-doubling our efforts across community safety and support.

We are saying goodbye to some incredible folks working across development, design, operations, community support, and product. If your team is hiring in any of those areas, please contact me at We would love to put you in touch with some amazing people.

That’s really sad to hear Peter. The DEV team is awesome. Would it be appropriate to ask “Why?” (Answer “no” counts but as it is our community I assume everyone here deserves to know the reason)

The DEV team is awesome.

100%. Truly amazing people and teammates.


Unfortunately, it's a pretty simple matter of us being forced to reduce expenses in order to ensure DEV's financial sustainability going forward. This was the very last thing that we wanted to do.

There's not a lot of space for what you're trying to achieve. So sad to read that, but this industry can be really tough.

💪 Huge thanks to the amazing people who contribute to DEV.

That's normal in this time. All companies are laying off people for various reasons, one is very common reason and that's to improve the profits.
