Great companies hiring designers despite COVID-19 (200+ open positions)

June 22, 2020

Times are rough and many talented people had to leave their jobs at companies like Uber or AirBnb. Other giants like DropBox has pretty much frozen all hiring. Not every industry is impacted in the same way though so I took the time to compile a list of great companies which are still hiring designers despite COVID-19.

The result is 25 companies with more than 200 open positions. All of these had to have better than 3 stars rating on GlassDoor. The other filter was more subjective. I have only included companies with a history of producing great designs or products.

Note: I'm still looking for new entries to expand this list. Is your company looking for designers? Pleas drop me a note so I can include it on this list.
