Mural lays off workers in talent, marketing departments

Several workers at Mural, a startup that creates online collaboration tools, were laid off earlier this week, according to LinkedIn posts from affected employees.

Current and former employees posted on Twitter and LinkedIn over the past few days informing their networks of the layoffs. At least nine Mural employees have posted about being laid off in departments including HR and recruiting, engineering and marketing. One former employee’s LinkedIn profile stated she had been laid off due to “company restructuring.” It’s unclear how many total workers were let go. Leah Taylor, a spokesperson for Mural, confirmed the layoffs, but did not clarify how many employees were affected. CEO Mariano Suarez-Battan said while the decision wasn’t easy, it was necessary for the company’s “long-term success.”

“Mural has made certain staffing reductions, focused on redundancies while scaling back projections on headcount increases for 2022,” Taylor wrote.
