🌎 London, Dubai, Taipei ∙ 👩 367 employees (15%) ∙ 🖥 Multiple departments
London-based Deliveroo, a food delivery startup that operates in 13 markets globally, laid off 367 employees in late April. At the time, the company was vague about the reasons for the layoff, but it’s widely speculated that the unprofitability of food delivery startups combined with pandemic-induced restaurant closures has led to troubles across the category.
On LinkedIn, the company has been promoting an official Deliveroo talent directory that showcases some of its laid-off employees (see link 👇). The Deliveroo layoff list contains over 100 former employees, primarily in London, Dubai, and Taipei.
