HELSINKI (Reuters) – Finnish software firm Digia said it would cut up to 190 jobs due to restructuring at its major client Nokia.
Digia said in a statement on Friday that the job cuts would affect staff in its mobile solutions segment and in some administrative and support functions. At the end of March, Digia employed around 1,600 people.
Nokia said in April it would axe 7,000 jobs to cut 1 billion euros ($1.42 billion) in costs as it struggles to compete in the smartphone market. The company has decided to use Microsoft software instead of its own Symbian platform. (Reporting by Helsinki Newsroom; Editing by Will Waterman) ($1=.7045 Euro)
