In Raleigh’s lively and diverse tech scene, talented developers can work for industry stalwarts like Cisco Systems, SAS, and IBM, innovative software companies like “Fortnite” creators Epic Games, or fast-growing startups like Republic Wireless, PrecisionHawk, and Constellation Digital Partners.
With these disruptive companies and a wealth of employee talent coming from local universities, it’s no wonder that many see the Triangle area of North Carolina as the next big tech hub.
Even with the coronavirus pandemic accelerating the move toward remote work, the human connection with fellow employees – and a workplace’s community – are still important factors when choosing your next gig.
But, with so many choices, where should a tech worker apply for a job in the Raleigh area?
We used two reputable sources – the Triangle Business Journal and Glassdoor – to curate a balanced list of the 10 best tech companies to work for in Raleigh, NC.
To be eligible for our list, a Raleigh-area tech company needed to be listed in the Triangle Business Journal’s Best Places to Work Awards for either 2019 or 2020. It also had to have at least five employee reviews on Glassdoor.
We ranked the tech and software companies that have been awarded by the Triangle Business Journal for two years running above the others, but the rankings are otherwise listed by highest Glassdoor ratings for Raleigh-area office locations at the time of this writing.
