Tech workers are facing a job market that seemed unthinkable six months ago. They’re getting fired over Zoom, whipsawed by phantom job listings and finding that aggressive recruiters have suddenly gone quiet.
Yet certain tech companies are scouting for and hiring employees. These include large companies like Facebook and Amazon, midsize public firms such as Pinterest and ServiceNow, and smaller startups such as design software maker Figma. Several self-driving car companies, including a Hyundai-affiliated joint venture, are flush with new capital that will allow them to recruit specialized engineers.
