After a rough first year on the stock market, overproducing its first hardware venture and pledging a redesign amid slow user growth, Snap Inc. laid off nearly two dozen employees.
An inside report, which was later confirmed by the company on Thursday, January 18., says the 22 cuts were made across eight departments.
Along with the layoffs, some staff members in New York and London are being relocated to the company’s headquarters in Los Angeles.
According to a company spokesman, Snap is working to centralize the team at that headquarters and the layoffs are part of that reorganization.
According to Cheddar, Snap Inc. also laid off around 30 staff last fall while also slowing hiring for 2018.
The departments affected include the content team, along with engineering and partnership.
