The ethics of #MetaTwitterStripe Layoffs
Hard times in tech
There is no easy way to say this. Some of our community members who taught fantastic masterclasses during our fellowships lost their jobs during mass tech layoffs.
Karthik is one of them.
“Bittersweet farewell: After 1.5 years at Meta, my chapter has come to an end. Alongwith 11k+ colleagues, unfortunately my entire team was impacted by the #metalayoffs.
When I first joined Meta, I was curious to learn how product teams operate at multi-billion dollar scale: how product leaders drive accountability across a broad range of XFNs/orgs and execute w/ high agency to drive massive impact across a portfolio of products. Fortunately, I got exactly the learning experience I was looking for and feel privileged to have been on this rollercoaster ride with some of the most talented, hardworking and amazing people across Singapore, London and Menlo Park.
Special thanks to Spencer Powell who took a bet on me as the first PM in an extremely ambiguous space, and Gaurav Dosi who helped sharpen my product leadership skillsets by providing me opportunities which pushed my boundaries. Thanks to all my amazing PM/PMM/Engg/PD/CD/DS/DE colleagues for trusting me with driving the product direction and providing me feedback to fast-track my learning experience, while having fun along the way.
As I still process this news with gratitude, I am excited to explore the next chapter in my career and would appreciate any help I can get in finding the next awesome product leadership opportunity. Feel free to reach out via DMs or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and to reshare this post with your network. I am open to Singapore, EMEA/London, India and Canada as locations.”
