Here's your chance to work at a big tech company.
Jobs in tech and online companies are starting to show up in Canada in a big way, according to a recent CBC report. Companies like Google, Meta (previously known as Facebook) and Amazon have already begun hiring. Google in particular is reportedly aiming to triple its workforce here in the Great White North. And some of these initiatives are sparkling new jobs right here in Montreal.
While starting salaries aren't included in the job descriptions, we do have some idea of what these snazzy positions pay. Currently in Montreal, Meta is hiring workers in advertising technology, communications and public policy, and software engineering. According to Glassdoor, the average salary for a software engineer at Meta is around CA$139,665 per year.
Google is looking to hire for positions as varied as account executives, music label partnerships managers, and senior software developers.
