Official Uber layoff list goes live; over 500 ex-employees listed

🌎 Multiple locations βˆ™ πŸ‘© 3,000 employees (13%) βˆ™ πŸ–₯ All departments

On Monday, Uber laid off 3,000 additional employees on top of the 3,700 employees cut two weeks ago. In a memo to the team, Uber’s CEO alluded to the creation of a public alumni talent directory as part of the company’s efforts to support departing employees.

That alumni directory is now live. Similar to the official Airbnb layoff list, Uber’s version allows recruiters and hiring managers to filter laid-off employees by location and role. Additional details include whether the person is open to relocation and/or remote work, and any experience managing people.
