Snap Inc. is closing its San Francisco office as the tech giant embraces a flexible work policy and seeks to cut costs.
"Our San Francisco location was lightly used by team members following our move to flexible work," a Snap spokesperson told FOX Business.
While employees are allowed to work remotely, Snap, the developer of social media app Snapchat, noted that some of its individual teams have scheduled in-office days. To continue to support San Francisco-based employees who want to go into the office, the company will offer access to a co-working space in the city.
Snap has multiple offices in the Bay Area, including a recently opened campus in Palo Alto. The spokesperson added that the company would continue to monitor its office usage by city.

The move comes as Snap has seen a continued slowdown in its revenue growth due to a number of factors including platform policy changes, macroeconomic headwinds and increased competition.
"We are finding that our advertising partners across many industries are decreasing their marketing budgets, especially in the face of operating environment headwinds, inflation-driven cost pressures, and rising costs of capital," Snap said in its quarterly letter to shareholders.
