The 2016 Top 100 Digital Companies in LA

John Siegel

Built In LA is proud to announce the 2016 list of the Top 100 Digital Technology Companies in Los Angeles and Orange County. This list ranks LA and OC's top digital tech employers based on local, full-time employee count.

Newcomers shine while veterans continue to grow

The Top 100 combined for a whopping 53,278 employees. Twelve of the Top 100 boast more than 1,000 employees, combining for 22,051 local employees. 

As Los Angeles continues to solidify itself as one of the premier tech markets in the world, its blend of up-and-comers and established tech companies is becoming more balanced. 29 of the Top 100 were founded in the last five years, while 42 companies were established before the year 2000.

Movers and shakers

In its first year of inclusion, Orange County was well represented, with Cylance leading the group at number 28. Other LA anchors rose on the list. Snapchat jumps 16 spots, ReachLocal grew from 32 to 20, and Jam City (formerly SGN Games) moved from 51 to 35. 

With a number of new companies joining the list this year, we're keeping an eye on fast-growing B2C startups like Acorns, Trunk Club, ChowNow HomeHero and DogVacay, as well as CallFire, Akana, RED Interactive Agency, Amobee and Greenwave Systems.

Built In LA's Top 100 is a ranking of the largest digital tech employers in Los Angeles based on local, full-time employee count as of September 1, 2016. This ranking is compiled by submissions to the Built In LA website and market survey as well as public company database research.
 
To be eligible for inclusion, a company’s primary business and industry must be digital technology/innovation, including web and mobile applications, software, IoT, e-commerce, VR/AR and digital agency work. Employee numbers only include workers in Los Angeles and Orange Counties and do not count part-time employees, interns, contractors or non-W2 workers. Both private and public companies have been surveyed. 
 
Some companies that may have been eligible have been excluded because they have self-opted to not disclose headcount or have not supplied the required information requested in the survey.
