The company uses technology to monitor and fix credit reports. It owns, and Lexington Law. Crunchbase News reached out to Progrexion for comment on Tuesday, and will update this story if the company responds.

Progrexion is one of dozens of U.S. companies in the tech and financial services spaces that have gone through mass layoffs in recent months. Publicly traded companies including Netflix, PayPal and Robinhood have also shed staff, along with high-profile startups including Bolt, Klarna and Loom. According to a Crunchbase News tally this week, more than 17,000 employees of U.S.-based tech companies have been laid off so far this year.

Other tech employers have announced plans to slow or freeze hiring in the challenging market environment. Uber, Instacart, and Tesla are just a few that have said they’ll pause or slow hiring, while companies including Coinbase have rescinded accepted job offers. 

The new environment for tech employers stands in sharp contrast to last year, when the stock market rallied and startups raised record amounts of venture funding and went on hiring sprees.
