Smartphone Platform Leaders Dominate List Of Most Desirable Employers


For smartphone fans like us, the chance to work first-hand with the teams that create the platforms our favorite phones and tablets run on sounds like a dream come true. Apparently we’re not alone in that sentiment, as revealed through a study conducted by LinkedIn to find the most desirable employers around the world.

Google takes the number one slot, with Apple at number two and Microsoft pulling in to third place. That seems a bit appropriate, with their ranking as desired employers mirroring their order in terms of their smartphone market share (leaving out RIM, at least).

While no straight-up hardware manufacturers made the top 20, other smartphone-related companies ranked high, like Facebook at number four and Twitter at fourteen.

Digging a little deeper, Samsung pops-up at thirty-six, right ahead of HP (not that they really count at the moment) at thirty-seven. HTC is at seventy-five, and Qualcomm at seventy-nine, rounding-out the top hundred.

If you could land a job with any smartphone company you wanted, whom would you work for?
