Online education company BYJU cut at least 600 jobs


Leading online education company BYJU’s has cut at least 600 jobs, terminating 300 employees on its learning platform Toppr and 300 employees on coding platform WhiteHat Jr.
BYJU has confirmed the job cuts at Toppr. BYJU acquired Toppr for $150 million last year. BYJU’S said it has completed the integration of Toppr and absorbed nearly 80% of its talented workforce into the BYJU’S ecosystem.

BYJU retained Toppr employees from the sales and marketing division, while asking employees from other departments to leave the company.

The BYJU spokesperson said it will optimize teams to recalibrate business priorities and accelerate long-term growth.

Online coding provider WhiteHat Jr, which was acquired by BYJU for $300 million, has laid off around 300 employees, after more than 1,000 of its employees quit after being asked to return to work in April-May .

This time, most of the laid off employees belonged to the platform’s code teaching and sales teams and some of them worked in Brazil.

WhiteHat Jr said in a statement that “we are optimizing our team to accelerate results and best position the business for long-term growth to realign with our business priorities.”

Meanwhile, media reports suggest that BYJU has delayed payments to stakeholders of Aakash Educational Services which was acquired for $1 billion.
