Over the past few weeks we’ve heard how big tech companies have had huge layoffs, whether it’s because of Twitter’s new direction or Meta’s strategy changes. Given this, the winner seems to be TikTok.
The short video app told a source close to CNN that in the next two years it will hire 1,000 employees just for its Mountain View office in Santa Clara, California. The parent company, the Chinese ByteDance, seeks to ensure that user data will be handled 100% in the United States.
On the other hand, the medium The Information reports that TikTok recruiters have begun reaching out to Silicon Valley engineers who have been laid off by other tech companies.
Big layoffs that TikTok takes advantage of
Big tech companies have had big layoffs in recent weeks. Meta cut 11,000 positions at the beginning of November, while Twitter has had a massive exodus of talent with the arrival of Elon Musk.
According to TikTok’s recruitment site, the company currently has more than 4,000 openings around the world.
TikTok CEO Shou Zi Chew said at the New Economy Forum in Bloomberg in Singapore that “their biggest team will be trust and safety.”
