🌎 San Francisco Bay Area ∙ 👩 1,550 employees ∙ 🖥 All departments
Juul, a maker of e-cigarettes, laid off 900 employees (30%) last month in a move unrelated to the coronavirus. The company has been mired in controversy over its role in the rise of underage vaping.
Juul also laid off 650 employees last October, bringing the total number of employees cut in the past year to 1,550.
In the wake of these layoffs, two separate lists of ex-Juul employees have emerged (see links below 👇). The official Juul Labs Alumni List contains 49 ex-employees actively looking for a job, though not all are from the most recent round of layoffs. The unofficial Juul layoff spreadsheet contains 79 ex-employees, but most were from last October’s layoff and may have already found new jobs.
