“Find a job you want to get up out of bed for.” It’s a thing people say, but what does it mean, really?

There are too many amazing companies in LA and too many exciting challenges waiting to be met to lay in terror of your alarm clock. Without further ado, we give you 10 top-notch LA tech companies hiring this month.

We try to identify really smart people with solid fundamentals and a positive attitude.”

What they do: Despite popular belief, Snap Inc. doesn’t consider itself a social media company.

Whether or not you use Snapchat, you’ve probably experienced the company’s influence on how we talk to each other and how we choose to share our lives.

Inside scoop: “We try to identify really smart people with solid fundamentals and a positive attitude. Domain-specific knowledge is great, but something we don’t mind folks learning on the fly. We make fun products and definitely want to see a capacity for creative thinking,” said Snap Software Engineering Manager Trevor Stephenson.

Industry: Fintech and blockchain

HQ: Marina del Rey

Employee perks: Dedicated diversity and inclusion staff, remote work program, lunch and learns, company outings, and more

All of our C-suite executives have an open-door policy, which results in a noticeable spirit of innovation that spans across each department and every initiative.

What they do: Spring Labs was launched around the time of the 2017 Equifax data breach — and what happened in that devastating system failure has had a huge impact on the company’s mission. The company, founded by members of Chicago fintech giant Avant, rocketed out of stealth mode in March 2018 with the close of a $14.75 million round. Since then, Spring Labs has been working on building out their Spring Protocol product, a network that helps users exchange information about data without actually sharing the data itself.     

Inside scoop: “I consider myself fortunate to work at Spring Labs. All of our C-suite executives have an open-door policy, which results in a noticeable spirit of innovation that spans across each department and every initiative,” shared Marick Sinay, VP of data science at Spring Labs.

Industry: Real estate and AI

HQ: Woodland Hills

Employee perks: Competitive salary, equity stake, latitude to learn new skills, and more

REX is offering its staff real latitude to learn new skills, solve interesting problems and grow with the company as it lowers the cost of home buying and selling.”

What they do: REX made waves in the notoriously low-tech world of residential real estate when it launched its online brokerage platform way back in 2014. The company uses machine learning to provides buyers and sellers with a predictive toolkit for determining a home’s value — and then selling it. Based in Woodland Hills, REX made news again when it announced raising a new $45 million Series C round in January. The funding infusion will help the company hire across the board, especially in technical roles.  

Inside scoop: “REX is offering its staff real latitude to learn new skills, solve interesting problems and grow with the company as it lowers the cost of home buying and selling while offering a way better consumer experience,” co-founder and CEO Jack Ryan told Built In LA. “Come work with leaders who have been drawn to REX from companies like Facebook, Google, Lyft and Netflix, and make a difference in an industry that’s ripe for change.”
