News about Medium Staff

How did we get here?

The driving reason behind this decision is focus. Medium has a reputation as a company that has tried a lot of experimental approaches. Experimenting is part of who we are. I hope we never lose that spirit, that persistence, and that courage to try new things. That is what makes Medium a special place to work.

What we are doing for impacted employees

We are doing everything we can to help support these employees.

  • A minimum of 3 months of severance and 3 months of COBRA.
  • Employees with options have 2 years to exercise (our standard) and employees in their first year will have their vesting cliff removed.
  • Employees may keep their computer equipment.
  • We will offer support finding new jobs.
