New data from job site Indeed shows that the share of job postings per million for augmented reality and virtual reality increased by 21.86% in 2018.

To find out which companies have been hiring most for these roles, Indeed analyzed data from its job site and came up with a list of the companies with the highest share of job postings in AR and VR.

Here’s the list below, in order of highest to lowest number of AR/VR job postings:

  1. Metaverse Entertainment
  2. VR 360 Adventures
  3. Cinemark
  4. Google
  5. PTC
  6. MetaOption
  7. Applied Research Associates
  8. TAG
  9. Facebook

Methodology: Indeed analyzed data from its job site from February 18 to February 19 to determine which companies had the highest share of job postings for AR/VR roles.
