From mobile apps to social networking platforms, software is driving our world right now.
Using data compiled by Business in Vancouver, I've listed the 5 software companies employing the most people in BC. I also identify whether the comapny has downsized from last year (–), maintained its headcount (=), or grown its staff (+), plus the year it was founded. Not surprisingly, software companies haven't been downsizing as the need for their services is greater than ever.
Note: This list excludes video game developers, who are worthy of their own list later on!
