Microsoft cuts 62 testing jobs

Those affected by automation-related layoffs were given the option of looking elsewhere at Microsoft, company says.

Microsoft said on Thursday that it has cut 62 testers from its Windows core operating-system unit. The job cuts come as Microsoft is moving some work from manual to automated testing.

Workers were notified of the cuts last week and were given the option of looking for other jobs at Microsoft, according to a representative. Last September, Microsoft cut some tester positions in its Windows Server unit.
