AMAZON LAYS OFF SEVERAL HUNDRED WORKERS IN CLOUD COMPUTING UNIT

Fox News reports Amazon is laying off several hundred workers in its cloud computing unit, AWS.

AWS, a subsidiary of Amazon that provides on-demand cloud computing platforms, cut a few hundred roles in its sales, marketing, global services division, and physical stores technology team.

An AWS spokesperson said the cuts were implemented after it “identified a few targeted areas” that it needed to “streamline.”

Amazon has continued to massively trim down its headcount since CEO Andy Jassy told employees that the company had to cut costs after the industry rapidly overhired during the pandemic.

Around the same time, Amazon’s Twitch service announced its own “difficult update,” sharing on its blog an email from CEO Dan Clancy to employees informing them that the company would slash its headcount by 35% to around 500 people.

Amazon employs a global workforce of 1.5 million people.
