The Covid-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown have provided an unexpected boost to education-technology companies. Many of them are on a hiring spree to manage their fast-growing businesses.

There are currently around 12,000 active openings for permanent job roles across levels at leading edtech companies, according to an estimate put together for ET by ManpowerGroup.

Some of the top employers are Byju’sUnacademy, Whitehat Jr, Vedantu and Simplilearn, among others, said leading executive search consultants including ManpowerGroup, Kellly Services and Xpheno, which have seen doubling of edtech mandates. In addition to these, there are over 90,000 contractual or gig positions across edtech firms, which are looking to ramp up due to an increased demand for online learning, according to ManpowerGroup estimate.
