The coronavirus recession has created an uncertain economy in the US. But economic crises can also be a great time for innovation. In fact, companies like WhatsApp, Uber, Groupon, and Slack were all launched during the 2008 financial crisis.
Today, even in the midst of a global pandemic, some relatively young startups are still booming.
LinkedIn released its annual list of top startups in 2020 on Tuesday, featuring 50 emerging and growing companies in the US. The list was compiled based on various factors including interest in the company, employment growth, engagement with employees, job interest, and ability to attract talent from Linkedin top companies – in other words, companies like Amazon, Facebook, and Alphabet.
The final list showed a few patterns in the types of companies doing well right now. The top three startups on the list, for example, give consumers more control over their purchases and lifestyle, and many offer online accommodations for remote work and invest in employee happiness.
According to LinkedIn, these companies are collectively hiring for more than 3,000 jobs right now, so if you’re searching for a career pivot, these top 10 companies could be a good bet. The companies are listed in descending order, with LinkedIn’s top rated startup at first place.
