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.

Uber

Uber laid off 3,700 employees, with more expected

🌎 SF Bay Area, NYC, Chicago, Phoenix βˆ™ πŸ‘© 3,700 employees (14%) βˆ™ πŸ–₯ Customer support, recruiting

Uber, the ridesharing service, laid off 3,700 employees (14%) last Wednesday. The layoff was concentrated in the company’s customer support and recruiting teams. Uber CEO’s letter to staff strongly hinted that more cuts are coming in the next week, including in engineering and product.

The Information reported that as many as 5,400 employees are expected to ultimately be laid off. However, one source tells Layoffs.fyi the total count could be as high as 6,700. In addition, 400-500 employees are reportedly being cut from Uber’s subsidiary Jump, which is being offloaded to Lime as part of Uber’s investment in the electric scooter company.

Kabbage

Ex-Kabbage layoff spreadsheet lists over 100 employees

🌎 Atlanta, New York City βˆ™ πŸ‘© Unknown # of employees βˆ™ πŸ–₯ All departments

In late March, small business lending startup Kabbage furloughed a “significant number” of its 500 employees. It also shut down its Bangalore office. Hoping to use furloughs as a way of avoiding permanent layoffs, Kabbage had intended to bring back the affected employees once business conditions improved.

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to decimate the economy, it’s unclear when that will happen. One source told Layoffs.fyi that the furloughs would last at least 2 months (through end of May). Another thought it was unlikely Kabbage would ever bring the furloughed employees back.

A Google spreadsheet called “Kabbagers for hire” has been circulating with over 100 names. See link below πŸ‘‡if you’re hiring in Atlanta or New York City.

UPDATE: Namely’s CEO tells Layoffs.fyi that 110 employees were laid off, not 160 as originally implied by TechCrunch.

A maker of HR and payroll software, Namely laid off 110 employees earlier this month. The company noted that its SMB customers have been downsizing as a result of the pandemic. This has led to lower revenue for Namely, which makes money in part via a per-employee monthly fee.
