(CNN) - Dozens of employees at Snapchat will apparently have to find new work.

CNN obtained an internal memo that says Snapchat will lay off "just over" 120 employees.

According to Snapchat's parent company, the staffers will come from its engineering department. The company says employees hit by the layoffs will be notified over the coming days.

The offices that will be affected remain unknown.

Snapchat has seen a backlash recently because of a major redesign of the app. The company says it has since made some tweaks.
