No. 1 Top Tech Employer: Amazon
The Seattle, Wash.-based public cloud titan was the leading employer in the second quarter of 2020, hiring technology positions focused on software developers, network engineers, program managers and system engineers. Amazon also created a significant number of e-commerce specialist job postings during the quarter as consumers used Amazon even more for their consumer and grocery needs in the wake of COVID-19.
Dice’s data relieves that Amazon, who has approximately 840,000 full and part-time staff in various industries, and defense contractors continue to be resilient and relevant amidst the global coronavirus pandemic.
After Amazon, the top tech employers in the second quarter ranked No. 2 through No. 6 were Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, General Dynamics, Ramy Infotech and Charles Schwab, respectively.
