Blackbaud has laid off workers from its Charleston and Austin operations, the company confirmed in an email.

The Daniel Island-based software company declined to disclose how many workers were affected in each location, saying only that it was a “small number of position eliminations.”

“Just like most companies, we do minor restructuring from time to time to best align people and resources to achieve our business objectives,” said Amy Lucia, Blackbaud’s vice president of corporate brand and communication. “Recently we realigned some roles to better serve our customers. … Blackbaud is reallocating those resources into higher-priority job functions.”

The company said it has more than 100 job openings on its website currently. The publicly traded software firm focuses on nonprofits and the education sector.

The firm also reported an unspecified number of layoffs last year.

In the past few years, Blackbaud has acquired a string of companies, including London-based crowdfunding platform JustGiving, Texas-based scholarship management platform AcademicWorks Inc., Maryland-based nonprofit software company and New Jersey-based tuition management company Smart Tuition.

Blackbaud is expanding its global headquarters on Daniel Island with a new campus, currently under construction, and 300 hires. The firm employs 3,200 people globally, with about 1,400 based in the Lowcountry.
