Where are all the Tech Jobs?

Tech Companies and Startups Still Hiring Despite Coronavirus

It’s no secret that many tech companies and startups in the UK (and across the world) are under stress at this time. Founders, management teams and startup employees are anxious about the current economic climate, and even those with ‘war chests’ of VC cash or unicorn status have been laying off or furloughing employees, as well as simply not posting new vacancies. But for those looking for jobs in startups or in tech, the key question is which companies are continuing to hire despite this downturn? Where have all the tech jobs gone?

As the UK's leading startup job board we feel it's our duty to try and help those searching for tech jobs, so we’ve compiled the below list of top UK tech companies and startups (or global tech unicorns with UK offices) and their current hiring status. The good news is that many are indeed still hiring, even if there are less jobs available than there were earlier in the year. Note many of these roles are available on our website, and you can apply directly through our platform.

We will be refreshing this data every other week, so keep an eye out to see how the hiring landscape evolves. This latest data is valid as of 26 May 2020. And of course, if you're not looking for a new full time role but are just after a mini project with an exciting startup to keep you busy while you may be on furlough, then do check out our Furlough Exchange opportunities here

If you’d like to see a specific tech company or startup added to the list, get in touch at contact@workinstartups.com.
