15 Best Places to Work in Tech for 2019

Several familiar companies joined the list for 2019, and some of the less-familiar names from 2018 are no longer as popular as they once were.

Thanks to several decades of high demand for their skills, technology workers have become accustomed to being courted by employers. High salaries, outstanding benefits, lavish time-off policies and perks like free food are the norm.

Because they know how valuable their skills are, IT professionals are often on the lookout for the very best places to work. With that in mind, InformationWeek has updated last year's slideshow on The Best Places to Work in Technology with new data from job posting site Indeed.com. The slideshow also incorporates salary and rating information from Glassdoor.com, as well as information provided by the companies' annual reports and websites.

Last year, one of the more interesting things about the list was how few of the top-rated tech employers were in Silicon Valley. This year, that trend has reversed. Twelve of the 15 best places to work in tech are now headquartered in California (although all have offices outside Silicon Valley as well).

Also, almost all of the companies on this year's list are ones that average people who don't work in the technology industry are fairly likely to recognize. Some of the more obscure employers featured in last year's slideshow have dropped out of the top 15.

Overall, the list changed quite a bit from 2017. Six of the companies on this year's list didn't make the cut in 2018, and only one company is in exactly the same spot on the list as it was last year. The number one employer might be a surprise, and also somewhat surprising is the fact that Google did not make the top 15 (although another Alphabet subsidiary did).

One thing that almost all the companies on the list have in common is that, with only a couple of exceptions, they turned in a strong financial performance for 2018. It seems that high revenue also correlates with happy employees.

Once again, all these companies are currently hiring, so if you're in the job market, this would be a great place to start.
