19 lose jobs as Razer closes San Francisco office

Hardware firm Razer has made 19 layoffs as it shuts its San Francisco office.

That's according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice filed with California's Employment Development Department - as reported by Dbltap - the firm is shutting its location on February 29th.

The company said it will now be headquartering its US business in Irvine, California moving forward, with this location and Singapore listed as Razer's dual headquarters.

"We will be centralising our US operations in Irvine to make it our corporate headquarters," the company said in a statement.

"This means that we will strengthen our bench of talents there and further investments will be made in this office where our Sales and Marketing, Systems Business Unit, Customer Advocacy, HR, and Finance teams are currently located... This consolidation allows us to focus on scaling our Irvine office with a view to establishing a larger campus in the long term."

Razer has recently also applied for a digital bank license in Singapore.
