The top French startups still hiring in the pandemic

Despite being in the midst of a second lockdown since early November, France’s startups continue to hire

Despite being in the midst of a second lockdown since early November, France’s startups continue to hire in a further sign of how the coronavirus failed to halt the digital economy.

The latest data from France Digitale, an industry group representing around 1,800 startups, shows some 140 companies are hiring, with a total of 2,150 vacancies open.

That’s down from the 300 companies that were hiring during the first lockdown, between March and May, when France Digitale’s jobs board was first launched. At that point, 3,000 positions were available on the board.

But it still shows that there are jobs to be had in France’s fast growing tech sector. Startups are key to France’s economy — in the fourth quarter of 2019, 94% of jobs created involving long-term contracts came from startups.

The government has sought to bolster its support for startups, with a €4bn cash injection in March and more than 10,000 startups having received state-backed loans across the pandemic, according to the country’s digital affairs junior minister Cedric O.

Back in March, it was BackMarket, the online marketplace for refurbished goods, which had the most vacancies open, with 74.

Today, Believe, a Paris-based music distribution company, and Mirakl, an online SaaS marketplace platform, both have 100 jobs listed each. Read more via TheSifted
