Irish multinational payment services provider Stripe has announced it will dismiss approximately 1000 employees, cuting 14% of it's global workforce. The company has confirmed the impact will be disproportionate across divisions, though most will occur in recruiting, as the company plans to hire fewer people next year. Stripe employs 8000 people across its dual-headquarters in Dublin (Ireland) and San Fransisco (USA), however, the impact for employees at each location is still unknown.  

CEO, Patrick Collison, stated exogenous factors such as inflation, energy shocks and interest rates have been drivers in reduced budgets, shifts in company earning forecasts and the drop in company valuation. In particular, Patrick Collison highlighted these circumstances as the reason for the restructuring, admitting the company had 'over hired' during the last years. 

All departing employees are set to receive at least 14 weeks of severance pay, those with longer tenures are set to get more. Annual bonuses will also be provided, as well as six months of existing healthcare premiums and a range of other career and visa support.
