Snap confirmed on Thursday "just over 120" layoffs from the engineering department, saying the streamlined team will help keep a "high technical bar."
"Having high-performance, technically excellent, and appropriately aligned teams will be critical to building both a compelling product and a compelling culture for engineers," Jerry Hunter, head of Snap's engineering team, said in a letter to employees. "We are doing this after a thoughtful and respectful review of each team member and with appreciation for the many contributions they have made to Snap."
