DICE, a UK-based ticketing platform, has undergone a recent round of layoffs, resulting in the dismissal of more than 30 staff members. The company’s creative team was the most affected, with all members except the creative director losing their positions. A significant portion of the marketing team was also let go. The company has indicated its intention to collaborate with more freelancers moving forward.
A DICE spokesperson stated, “We recently made the difficult decision to restructure parts of our business to ensure we can focus on our most important initiatives. This isn’t an exercise we carry out lightly, and we’re sad that we have to say goodbye to colleagues that we love working with and respect enormously.”
This marks the third round of layoffs at DICE in recent months, according to an anonymous review posted on Glassdoor on July 20th. In 2021, DICE secured $122 million in venture capital investment from investors like SoftBank’s Vision Fund 2 and Future Shape, the firm founded by former Apple executive Tony Fadell. Additionally, DICE acquired Boiler Room for an undisclosed sum after receiving the investment.
