Hootsuite laid off nearly a third of its workforce as CEO tries to ‘refocus’ Harri Weber

Social media marketing firm Hootsuite says it has slashed its workforce by 30%.

“We need to refocus our strategies to drive efficiency, growth and financial sustainability,” CEO Tom Keiser said in a statement sent to TechCrunch. The company offered no specifics on what exactly is changing about the business. It did not disclose the specific number of workers affected.

Hootsuite has raised more than $300 million in capital to date, per Pitchbook. Its backers include Fidelity, a Boston-based investment firm, and Accel, the Palo Alto-based VC.
