Social Media

Companies that are building social media platforms allow employees to develop their coding skills and learn about what people enjoy.


Facebook is one of the world’s best places to work because of the free and relaxed environment. Facebook is a social media platform that is built around bringing people together, and they reflect that model in the office.

On Facebook, people can share photos, videos, post a status, view events, and comment on one another’s posts. The site allows for people to easily find others that they known, and members can join communities in the form groups.


Twitter is also known for bringing people together. This social media platform’s team is a group of like-minded individuals that care about their careers and want Twitter to succeed.

The platform is simplistic, showing a single feed of tweets that can be viewed in the form of 280 character posts, photos, and videos. The platform has also introduced a live stream feature that’s powered by Periscope


Facebook introduced Instagram to the world of social media several years ago. Instagram was originally about photo sharing, but the service has introduced video content through the forms of live-streaming and IGTV

Instagram is one of the unique and cool places to work in that people can make money through advertisement by posting content. The team behind Instagram is multi-cultural, competitive, and provide a fun work environment.


Snapchat is a company that’s all about having fun. Their mobile app is a social media platform that lets users send photos that last for limited times. Today, various filters can be used when taking photos.

Team Snapchat is renowned for being fun and expressive. The team’s goal is to let users feel liberated and form better relationships with others through their app.


MP3’s and CD players are long gone. Streaming services are today’s way to listen to music, and Spotify allows users to listen to their favorite songs for free. Many of the employees at Spotify focus on programming and app development.

Spotify is slowly evolving into a social media platform, giving users the option to follow friends to see their playlists and what they’re listening to. You can also listen to podcasts and view videos.


Technology is advancing each day, and there are several companies in the world that stand out due to their contribution.


UiPath is a company that is determined to contribute to the growth of businesses around the world. They develop enterprise software that lets businesses put their manpower in other areas.

The people at UiPath are hard-working individuals that have created an RPA software that handles tasks automatically. They speak more about RPA on their site, and you might be interested in getting involved with their mission.


One of the largest phone and computer companies, Apple is known for its advanced take on technology. The creator, Steve Jobs, was passionate about technology and started Apple from his garage. 

Working at Apple is great for those that like to get their hands on new technology, and the employees are dedicated to carrying the torch on Jobs’ vision.


Microsoft is another one of the best places to work. This company is all about providing users with technology that they can alter and use to their liking. Employees at Microsoft take pride in their tech skills and customer service.

Aside from developing computers and the Windows operating system, Microsoft has gone on to create Xbox, a video game console. If you love video games, working for the Xbox team may be a good opportunity.


Tesla is a unique car company that’s run by Elon Musk, the same guy that founded SpaceX. Tesla’s mission is to provide efficient and affordable electronic vehicles. They don’t believe in the damage that gasoline vehicles cause.

The people that work for Tesla share the same mindset as Elon; they want to make the environment better and prevent people from getting hurt. With Tesla, you’d be a part of the company that’s quickly taking over the auto industry.


Google is an internet supergiant that began as a search engine. Their mission is to make the information on the internet accessible to everyone. Those that work for Google are intelligent, like-minded, and assist each other.

Over the years, Google has developed several services that help people in different parts of the internet, such as Google Ads, Google Translate, Google Docs, and Google Maps.
