Amazon announced on Monday that it will be firing 9,000 more people in the next weeks, largely from the advertising, AWS, and Twitch departments.
The second stage of the business’ yearly planning process, which was finished this month, resulted to the extra job layoffs, according to the memo from CEO Andy Jassy. Amazon, he claimed, will continue to hire in a few key locations.
Some people might wonder why we didn’t disclose these role reductions at the same time as the ones we did a few months ago.The quick explanation is that not all of the teams finished their analyses in the late fall. Rather than rushing through these assessments without the necessary care, we elected to disclose these decisions as we made them so others could learn about them as soon as possible, Jassy added.
