By BrainStation May 5, 2020

It goes without saying that the spread of COVID-19 has had a significant impact on employment, hiring trends, and the world of work in general. While the current “new normal” has been a shrinkage in the workforce, startups in Vancouver’s hot tech market are still growing and hiring. 

Here are three great Vancouver tech startups that are hiring right now. 


Lumen5 combines artificial intelligence and machine learning in a platform that can turn text into engaging video content in minutes  – with no training. Launched in 2017, Lumen5 recently won New Ventures BC and was recognized for being one of the fastest-growing startups in the province, with over 400,000 users across the globe. 

The company is currently hiring a Front-End Engineer and a Javascript Engineer, but the company also has an open call page, and they encourage ambitious, talented individuals to apply, anytime.

Vessi is a shoe company like no other. Founded by Mikaella Go and Tony Yu through a Kickstarter project (their campaign attracted more than nine thousand backers and 1.2 million dollars pledged), the company has a patented fabric technology, which was designed to withstand Vancouver’s wet, rainy weather – and stay stylish. 

Totally vegan and sustainably made, the waterproof shoe “functions like a boot, fits like a sock, but looks like a sneaker.” This mix seems to be hit; pre-orders were halted to keep up with the overwhelming demand. Now the company is hiring to continue its growth; Vessi is looking for talented individuals in administration and HR, customer success, and marketing, Find out more about the company and their available roles at the Vessi careers page
