Amazon is ramping up its efforts to trim headcount as the e-tail giant faces a softening consumer marketplace.
In a memo to employees, Amazon CEO Andy Jassy said the company intends to eliminate about 9,000 workers in the next few weeks. Affected employees will mostly be in the Amazon Web Services; people, experience and technology (PXT), advertising, and its Twitch streaming platform.
At the beginning of 2023, Amazon said it plans to eliminate just over 18,000 roles in 2023, with the majority of cuts in its Amazon Stores and PXT organizations. This latest round of layoffs is happening in addition to the previously announced staff reductions.Chain Storeage
