Research in Motion makes Top 5 Hot Canadian Companies

Comments

The Province has put together their list of the Top 5 Canadian companies and RIM is at the top of their list. Here is what they had to say about the company:

Research in Motion

When its executives aren’t trying to repatriate the Phoenix Coyotes, they’re busy making and marketing the BlackBerry smart phone.

Founded by Mike Lazaridis in 1984 in Waterloo, Ont., RIM has seen its share of ups and downs. Patent disputes and stock-option scandals have both made headlines for the wrong reasons. But when the president of the United States is rarely seen without your product, you know you’ve got something to sell to the world.

With annual revenue of approximately $11 billion for fiscal 2009 and with more than 12,000 employees, RIM has proven that Canadian companies can compete in technology.

RIM faces some tough competition in the smart-phone domain, including heavyweights Apple and Palm, but analysts expect its market share to grow into next year and beyond.

Recent polls have indicated that the majority of consumers who plan on buying a smart phone in the near future intend to buy a BlackBerry.

The only problem I have with the Top 5 is that the list included companies from unrelated markets. The next company on the list is Boston Pizza, which I had no idea was Canadian. I would love to see the Top 5 Canadian High Tech Companies.

Research in Motion still hiring despite economic slowdown

Comments

RIM jobs

Although many companies are laying off their employees, RIM is still going strong and hiring all the right talent. RIM is still looking to fill hundreds of positions.

The BlackBerry maker said it plans to make about 600 new hires in order to support its growing portfolio of BlackBerry products. The company is looking to bolster its 12,000-member-strong workforce with new engineers, salespeople, and software developers, executives said.

“We’ve built this business on some really spectacular talent and some great chemistry,” co-CEO Mike Lazaridis said in an interview with Bloomberg. “We’re not about to let that down.”

Many of these hires will come from the competition, serving to both boost RIM’s human capital, as well as take talent away from rivals.

RIM has been able to avoid the downturn so far, and it posted a strong fourth quarter thanks to handsets like the BlackBerry Storm. Smartphone sales are expected to defy the sluggishness in the overall mobile market, and RIM said its push architecture will be a key differentiator from its rivals.

RIM looking to hire 1,250 new employees

Comments

RIM logoIn these tough economic times, it’s encouraging to hear that at least one company is looking to hire. The Financial Post is reporting that RIM is looking to hire more than 1,250 new employees, mostly in product development and R&D. The main reason for the employee push? The growing pains of launching 4 new BlackBerrys in as many months.

“For the past three or four years, RIM has done the same thing companies like Nokia are doing now with a fraction of the workforce… Right now, for every engineer who is promoted, RIM is hiring two or three to replace them.”

RIM currently has around 10,000 employees. You can check out the latest posted RIM jobs at our BlackBerry Jobs page.
