The company had said it had 3,069 employees as of December 31, 2017, according to its annual filing.

The Snapchat parent has been under pressure from investors to reduce costs after revenue fell short of analyst expectations during Snap's first year as a publicly traded company.

Earlier this month, a company memo had shown that the company would cut just over 120 engineers and reorganise its engineering team, Reuters reported.

The Southern California-based company said the workforce reduction "is to align resources around our top strategic priorities and to reflect structural changes in our business."
