Thumbtack announced it would cut 14 percent of its employees to reduce operating costs as a result of the economic downturn. The staff reduction could result in as many as 140 jobs lost for the SF-based home services site.

The move comes as SF firms OutSchool and Komodo Health also announced layoffs this week. The surge of November and December cuts round out a year of post-pandemic adjustments for SF companies.

In total, The Standard has tracked more than 24,000 layoffs in San Francisco for 2022.
