We have just been informed by one of our sources that more DJI employees from the drone makers’ office in Palo Alto will be let go by the end of this week. The drone maker did confirm the reduction of staffing in the offices without being specific.
More DJI employees in Palo Alto office to be let go this week
The information we received from one of our sources said that the entire team of engineers that have worked on the DJI Zenmuse L1, the company’s first LiDAR solution, was informed yesterday that they will be let go by the end of this week.
We have tried to confirm this news with DJI directly and a DJI employee who asked not to be identified confirmed it, saying:
“We have reduced some staffing in Palo Alto to reflect our evolving needs.”
We were unable to confirm that these personnel changes are part of DJI’s “Long March” reforms, but it seems that way. The drone maker started making a number of organizational changes at the beginning of 2020 and by the looks of it, the world’s largest drone maker is not done yet.
