It's been a good week for the Bay Area.
Four of the five tech companies that are most attractive to job seekers across the United States are local, according to Indeed.
This, just one day after the Bay Area dominated LinkedIn's first-ever list of the most in-demand startups nationwide.
When compiling its inaugural list, the employment search engine looked for job listings that sparked considerable interest across five sectors: tech, media/entertainment, retailers, consumer brands and finance.
Sony Interactive Entertainment, of San Mateo, is ranked first, followed by Red Hat, of Raleigh, N.C. A trio of San Francisco companies — Postmates, Slack and Airbnb came in third, fourth and fifth places respectively.
“There are a small number of companies that see extraordinary interest from job seekers," said Paul D'Arcy, a senior vice president at Indeed. "These 'hot' companies could be seeing above-average traffic due to a number of factors like expansion, new products or increased marketing activity."
Potential employees considered a variety of factors, from company reputation to wages and length of commute to culture, Indeed found.
"These companies are the outliers in their respective industries, with highly attractive job postings to a larger than expected group of hopefuls," D'Arcy continued.
Below are the top five companies in the four other categories:
