10 Companies Hiring Like Crazy in April
Awesome companies with awesome open positions? In our world, that’s called having our cake and eating it too.
And the icing on top is that these companies not only have open positions—they have a lot of them. Read below to find your perfect fit, and then find your next job today.
“What makes most people come here and decide to stay here for their career is the sense of community that runs through all of our offices,” says Tracy Coté, senior vice president of HR. “There’s the global thread of family and belonging at Genesys which I think is very special and unique to this company.”
How does that sense of family manifest itself? Genesys has monthly anniversary celebrations, weekly lunches at headquarters, and regular happy hours where departments can share the work they’re doing with the entire team.
There’s also a lot of cultural collaboration. Employees share traditions and cultures by doing things like getting temporary tattoos for Diwali or visiting educational health fairs together.
“Just sitting with the heads of Braintree for five minutes will blow you away,” says David Vasser, North American head of underwriting. “You can see the future and everything they were looking to do—and you want to be a part of it.”
Even though Braintree is a fairly young startup, it’s already been acquired by PayPal. You’ll recognize its clients, too, which include Airbnb, LivingSocial, and GitHub.
Ben Mills, a software engineer, echoes Vasser’s thoughts: “When I applied to Braintree, it was the team that really won me over. The CTO inspired me to push myself—and that’s exactly what I was looking for.”
3. Gap, Inc.
Gap Inc. is a global fashion leader. Its brands, which include Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, and Intermix, are already available in 90 countries.
But according to Elise Pent, manager of corporate strategy and business development, the company isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
“We haven’t really even hit our peak yet, and that’s so exciting,” she says. “We have so much opportunity to grow, not only with new brands but also within international verticals as well.”
Getting to think outside country lines is really exciting for Jermaine Younger, who’s worked with three of Gap Inc.’s brands during his time with the company.
“Working for a global brand is really incredible. It’s not just seeing your customer on the street every day, but thinking about customers in London, Japan, or China and what they might want,” Younger says.
Deloitte is the largest professional services network—not in the U.S., not in North America, but in the world. And it’s got another cool title, as well: 15-year member of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For.” Oh, and it’s one of Inc.’s “Top 50 Companies for Diversity!”
If you want your career to take off, Deloitte’s the place to make that happen. Not only does the company help its team members learn virtually, but it also offers training at its $300 million, state-of-the-art learning facility. Professionals at every stage of their careers attend Deloitte University.
“Deloitte University hosts training at all levels to help you get prepared to hit the ground running on your first project,” says Susie Dillon, a business analyst. “I felt so well supported when I first started that I’m excited to pass it on to the new hires.”
To score a job that’ll have you coming home from the office every day feeling invigorated by the positive effect you’ve had, work for Udacity. The company is an online education provider on a mission to bring engaging educational opportunities to people everywhere.
“I love the mission that we’re on,” says Owen Smith, senior code wrangler (and yes, that’s his real title). “I love that I can do interesting engineering work on something that I feel has an important social impact.”
When Udacity says its courses will advance your career, that’s no throw-away line. Barry Malinowski says the ones he took helped him score his current job as Udacity’s growth project manager!
Life at Venmo is pretty fast-paced. Case in point: After being founded in 2009, the company was acquired by Braintree in 2012, became part of the EBay family in 2012, and officially became a verb (“Venmo me!”) in 2014.
Happiness engineer John Graham says, “Since we’ve been in New York, we’ve had three offices, and it’s been so exciting to watch our company continue to blossom.”
The type of person who enjoys this fun and challenging atmosphere is definitely not the type of person who enjoys sitting around in conference rooms. And he or she won’t have to.
“Whenever possible, we like to give people the freedom to spend their time working rather than sitting in meetings all day,” says Theresa Reagan.
When you work at Medallia, your goal is not to be perfect. Instead, management stresses reacting positively to failure by seeing it as an opportunity to grow, evolve, and become more resilient.
As you can imagine, this policy creates a super supportive, warm environment. The people don’t hurt either: “We hire people that you want to spend time with and that you really want to grow with, which I think is really special,” explains engagement manager Evan Freedman.
You’re probably getting the sense culture is all-important at this company. You’d be right—there’s an employee whose sole job is to look at candidates from a cultural standpoint! Satisfaction (but not perfection) guaranteed.
8. Credit Karma
Since 2007, Credit Karma has been helping people get free access to their credit and financial data. Employees love the rewarding nature of their jobs; as product manager Isaac Rose says, “Working at Credit Karma is awesome because at the end of the day, my job is to make products that will help users better understand and navigate the difficult waters of personal finance.”
The team is also enthusiastic about how much fun they have. From game nights, ping pong tournaments, and karaoke events at the office to comedy shows, Giants games, and outings into the city, Credit Karma is constantly doing something cool.
We don’t typically think of our work and our health going hand-in-hand. (Most of the time, we’re blaming our health on our jobs.) However, at Reebok, you can indulge your passion for an active life while helping other people—not just athletes—achieve the same balance.
“Someone who would fit perfectly at Reebok is someone who embraces the fitness lifestyle,” says Andi Archer, apparel designer. “Someone who loves a challenge and wants to change what fitness and health can do for the community. It’s about changing the way we think about our lives.”
From the CrossFit Box that’s (literally) just a hop, skip, and a jump from your desk to the Campus Fitness Days, which include running, dancing, hiking, and doing yoga, you’ll strengthen your body, your relationships, and your career at Reebok.
Do you love food? Of course you do. Well, good news, because GrubHub—America’s leading online and mobile food ordering company—is all about the chow-down.
Naturally, there’s an on-site pizza restaurant. There’s also a huge, state-of-the-art kitchen, a rooftop desk perfect for “Liquidity Preference Functions” (read: happy hours), and many, many meals eaten as a team. All for the cause, right?
But GrubHub is also just an awesome place to work.
“One of our values here is to be very playful,” says Kerry Hoffman, project manager.
The company knows playful people are also good at solving challenges, so the creative vibe is emphasized throughout the culture, from fun desk setups to ping pong tournaments.
