70 multimedia company websites to peruse for inspiration/internships/jobs

Posted on

multimedia companies

You may be wondering how I am selecting companies to feature for our new series “Company Spotlight.” Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret: For the last six months I have been keeping track of every multimedia company I have come across on a massive Google Doc.

While I will try to feature as many companies as possible, there is no way to conduct Q&A’s with all of them. And what good does a massive list of resources do when it sits in my private docs? Thus, I decided to publish a portion of my list for you to peruse on your own in case you are looking for an internship, a job, or sheer inspiration.

Before you get discouraged by the lack of multimedia jobs in the online journalism sector, check out these companies to see if they are hiring. Or, if you are an entrepreneur, check out the competition before forming your LLC!

I’m sure that I haven’t found all of the companies out there, so please add those I have missed in the comments below. Thanks in advance for your input!

    this is an excellent post! it would be helpful if you had time to list the city where the company is based, rather than just the country. thanks for the resource.

    Great point, Erica. I started noting the state on a couple of them, but I will go through and try to find more precise locations for the companies listed. Thanks!

    Thanks for including Periscopic in your list! We’re located in Portland Oregon, and should be in the “Information Design / Data Visualization Companies” category.

    Thanks for the clarification! I have swapped your company listing under the correct header. Cheers!
