The LA tech scene is growing every day. If you're considering a career change or just want to hear about all the great perks you may be missing, these seven companies are showcasing how they're some of the best in tech — and they have lots of open jobs.
Loot Crate was founded in 2012 around a simple idea: put the awesomeness of Comic-Con in a box. Today, they ship some of the coolest geek, gaming, and pop-culture collectibles and accessories to a subscriber base in the hundreds of thousands.
"We’ve assembled an amazing team of passionate, ambitious, impossibly nerdy people who cultivate our amazing fan community, provide support of the highest caliber, and generally just sit there radiating niceness."

Pasadena-based Wallaby develops apps for consumers to optimize credit card usage based on individual preferences.
"Wallaby is focussed on helping Americans save money every day by being smarter about personal finance. We're looking for people who want to join us on that mission with their analytical skills and user-focused approach."
Retention Science is a marketing platform built to retain and target existing customers. The company uses lots of algorithms and data to capture a 360 degree view of a site visitor and boil down what matters the most to that specific visitor across web and email platforms. From there, they develop one-on-one retention campaigns, which are proven to increase revenue and loyalty. Another one of our Top 50’s, and one of the most successful companies in the United States, Honest Company uses Retention Science for their email marketing efforts. With the service, Honest is able to capture information about their subscribers preferences, like time of day emails are opened and time spent reading each email, and tailor their efforts to be more effective. Clearly, it’s working. Retention Science also works on marketing campaigns for Target, Neiman Marcus and Vitamin Shoppe.
