Github, a San Francisco-based online project hosting startup, has made cuts to its sales department. The company confirmed the cuts to Fortune, saying the layoffs made up “less than 5%” of its employees. That would be around 30 people. A company spokesperson said the layoffs were part of Github’s focus on enterprise sales. “We are refocusing our resources in order to serve our customers more efficiently,” the spokesperson said.

Valued at $2 billion, Github has raised $350 million in funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Sequoia, IVP, Thrive Capital, and SV Angel.
