Monzo launches layoff list amid multiple rounds of layoffs

🌎 London βˆ™ πŸ‘© Hundreds of employees βˆ™ πŸ–₯ Multiple departments

A London-based digital bank, Monzo laid off 120 of its U.K. employees in June and 165 of its Las Vegas employees in April. The company also previously furloughed 295 U.K. employees.

To help its laid-off employees find new roles, Monzo created a talent directory (see link πŸ‘‡) . It’s not clear whether the directory is meant to cover the company’s previous layoffs, or if there’s been a new round in July. In a LinkedIn post, an employee on Monzo’s talent team alludes to “saying goodbye to some incredibly valued colleagues at Monzo right now.”

As consumers pull back on spending, Monzo generates less revenue from the interchange fees on its debit card products. The company recently raised Β£60 million at a 40% lower valuation to its prior round last year.

The Monzo layoff list features 24 ex-employees, many of whom are engineers and designers.

Adtech startup Sharethrough lays off 18 employees

🌎 San Francisco βˆ™ πŸ‘© 18 employees (22%) βˆ™ πŸ–₯ Sales and marketing

Sharethrough, a digital advertising exchange, laid off 18 employees today (22%). The downsizing primarily affected the company’s sales and marketing teams.

In a blog post, Sharethrough said that its business has been impacted by COVID-19, though there were signs of recovery in June. Brands have been pulling back their advertising spending during the economic slowdown, triggering layoffs at digital advertising firms as well as media companies dependent on ad revenue.

Sharethrough and other ad exchanges may be facing other headwinds beyond economic conditions. Recent initiatives by Apple and Google to restrict data tracking in browsers and mobile apps have the potential to severely shake up an entire advertising ecosystem that depends on this data to target and attribute digital ads. While Sharethrough did not cite this as a factor for its layoff, the company previously shut down its European operations due to restrictions in ad tracking imposed by GDPR.

To help laid-off employees, Sharethrough put together an opt-in list that it shared with (see link below πŸ‘‡).

StubHub shifts 200 of its furloughed employees into permanent layoffs

🌎 San Francisco βˆ™ πŸ‘© 200 employees βˆ™ πŸ–₯ Multiple departments

Back in March when the coronavirus first became a pandemic, online ticket marketplace StubHub furloughed 450 employees (2/3 of its North American workforce). Now, the company says that 200 of those employees will be permanently laid off, as live events continue to be shut down.

Due to their increased risk of disease transmission, mass gatherings like concerts and sports games will be one of the last activities to be reopened. It follows that ticket marketplaces like StubHub are among the tech businesses worst-affected by the coronavirus. Just weeks before the pandemic, Viagogo agreed to acquire StubHub from eBay for $4 billion, a deal which Forbes recently dubbed the “Worst. Deal. Ever.” due to its unfortunate timing.

In the wake of the restructuring, the company created an official StubHub talent directory “for recruiters and hiring managers to easily sort through the skills and experience of this community” (see link πŸ‘‡).

The StubHub layoff list currently contains 72 ex-employees, primarily in San Francisco.
