In the competitive world of tech, working at an innovative company now comes with the expectation of great benefits and perks. Bean bag chairs and foosball is a nice addition to a workplace, but these days fun in the office is only the beginning. To attract top talent and produce happier work environments, companies are offering employees benefits like free daily meals, unlimited vacation policies and onsite fitness facilities. 

To highlight awesome perks and benefits, every year Built In compiles a list of the companies with the best benefits in the tech hubs Austin, Boston, Chicago, Colorado, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle. Our list algorithmically analyzes the benefit information provided by companies to our database to determine the best benefits in each location. We give more weight to essential benefits like health insurance and less to nice-to-have perks like beer on tap. You can check our methodology page for more information.
