Robinhood, Autodesk, Ripple are ramping up Canadian hires.

The landscape of tech giants is expanding rapidly. Recent data from Pitchbook indicates that during the first quarter of 2024, a record 37 startups globally achieved unicorn status—each valued at over $1 billion USD, representing the largest increase in these valuations over the past year.

A wave of potential exits is also on the horizon. Adena Friedman, CEO of Nasdaq, indicated earlier this year that approximately 100 companies have confidentially filed to initiate initial public offerings (IPO).

Amidst this growth, several of these tech behemoths in the United States, both unicorns and those that have already exited, are setting their sights on expanding their teams, particularly in the Canadian market. 

Here are three US tech giants that are currently hiring in Canada. Check out all the organizations recruiting at Jobs.BetaKit for more opportunities.
