“The team is, first and foremost, focused on their safety,” CEO Brad Hoover said, declining to specify how many of his employees had joined Ukraine’s defense effort.

Prior to the war, nearly half of Grammarly’s more than 600 staffers were based in Ukraine.

Hoover said many of those people have since left the country, or relocated to areas within Ukraine that are safer from conflict.

Grammarly makes a typing assistant and was valued by investors at US$13bil (RM54.78bil) in November.

When the fighting started, its departments with operations in Ukraine shifted those responsibilities elsewhere within the company.

Grammarly also offered paid leaves of absence for workers who were forced to flee their homes because of the fighting.

Rahul Roy-Chowdhury, Grammarly’s global head of product, said the company hasn’t changed its priorities as it makes second-quarter plans. »
