How did we live before Instagram? Well, we probably didn’t have our nose in our phones as much, but seriously an Instagram account can say so much about a company and the people who work for it.
Adam Rosenberg, Co-Founders of the creative studio and influencer collective kvell, told Inc., “Instagram is the number one platform where people go to discover new products, experiences, and businesses, so it’s essential to have a presence, but not just any presence. Your brand needs to stand out.”
Even though a brand may be incredibly well-known, and around for years, if your Instagram doesn’t intrigue, entertain or stimulate, does it even really exist? After all, Instagram added 100 million users in only five months in 2017 and has an impressive 800 million monthly users. Plus 53% of users follow brands on the platform.
Using its continuously updated database of high-paying jobs Ladders decided to take a look at which companies hiring for $100K+ jobs had standout Instagram accounts. Here are 15 great ones:

Meet Sergio, @ge__renewables’ Logistics Hub Manager for the Merkur project. He’s leading the charge to deliver 66 GE Haliade 150-6MW wind turbines to Merkur. Here he stands among towers slightly smaller than the Statue of Liberty, made of three separate sections that come together to form one 1,200-ton tower. The scale of the Merkur project is massive, involving complex logistics and accounting for 330 separate components for the turbines alone. Head to our Story for an insider’s look at this phase of the #WindCycle. Photo by @finn #Haliade #Merkur #renewables #energywork #engineeringlife
Wind turbines never looked so good.

トラベラーズカフェ店長のブログ 【旅と自転車と】 旅に出る。目的地なんて決まっていなくてもただ移動をするだけの旅に出る。たまにはそんな旅もいいと思う。 それはそれとして、ギブソンにはがんばって復活してもらいたいなあ。 Starting a journey without finding the destination. Even just moving is travel. By the way, Gibson is the historical brand also respected. We hope it will get over this situation. #travelersnotebook #travelersfactory #travelerscompany #トラベラーズファクトリー #トラベラーズノート #トラベラーズカンパニー
This just proves that even if your company’s industry has a boring reputation it doesn’t mean they can’t be creative and clever on their Instagram and The Traveler’s Companies does not disappoint. Full of fun illustrations and cool pics, this brand definitely sets itself apart.

Did you really think Google wouldn’t have an amazing Instagram account? After all, who isn’t inspired by Google?

You can’t go too wrong with beautiful vintage cars but Ford really outshines its competitors with its thoughtful Instagram feed.
Apple has always been about aesthetics in their design, so it is no wonder that their Instagram feed follows suit. But even more wonderous is that they manage to plug their product and interact with their customers by using their iPhone photos mainly on the platform. Surprisingly they only started doing it in 2017.

There is nothing more mundane than washing clothes (even in a beautiful Whirlpool washing machine) and yet the company has made an incendiary Instagram account. There is nothing really more relatable than doing laundry and that is what the account is all about: Life and the wonderful messes we have to clean up because we are living. Whether you are on load 50 or load 3,862 for your daughter, you are getting through it. I dare you not to tear up at that video.

Gap always had an incredible ad campaigns (remember those holiday commercials? They were iconic.) So we aren’t surprised their Instagram account isn’t super fun as well.

I mean it’s pretty hard to have a bad Instagram account when your company has beautiful hotels all over the world, but still Marriott really outdid itself.
OK so motorcycles are cool but Harley-Davidson does a great job of showing their appreciation for their diverse and loyal customer group (women ride motorcycles too!), many of whom they feature on the platform. They also made a wise choice choosing motorcycle enthusiast and This is Us star Milo Ventimiglia to do a campaign with them this year.

Yes sometimes we get sick of seeing food on our Instagram feeds but not when it looks this good. Plus none of it is gourmet so you know you could actually make all of this food yourself.

Pretty hard to not have a great Instagram account when your company makes some of the most popular and beloved films of all time (not to mention huge franchises like Star Wars, The Incredibles and Avengers) and is the owner of one of the happiest places on Earth. Plus, they created Winnie the Pooh!

They make some of the coolest athletic products ever and their Instagram brings those products to life through visual stories.
