10 Cool Companies Hiring in Los Angeles

To put little spin on a Tupac favorite: “To live and thrive in L.A., it’s the place to be. You’ve got to be here to know it, what everybody wants to see.”

Los Angeles is home to the Dodgers, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Ryan Gosling melting hearts in La La Land. It has birthed Marilyn Monroe, Will.I.Am, and 90210 (yes, the zip code and the hit teen show). In and amongst the palm trees and sunny beaches, Los Angeles is also home to a booming job market. According to Glassdoor’s Local Pay Reports, L.A. has over 163,000 job openings (an increase of 11.1 percent since 2015) and the median pay in LA is $59,260 (nearly $8,000 over the U.S. median pay).

From hospitality to healthcare, entertainment to engineering, some of Los Angeles’ biggest industries are hiring now. Here are 10 cool companies who would love to add you to their teams. Apply now and head to Hollywood!

1. Terranea
Perks: Ocean views, top-notch health insurance, free lunch, and free dry cleaning.
Hiring For: Retail Associate, Massage Therapist, Supervisor, Reservations Agen, Sous Chef, Executive Meeting Manager and more
What Employees Say: “Not only is the location beautiful, but there are a lot of friendly faces to meet. For the most part, staff and managers are friendly and understanding but you do still have to work hard. They typically try to promote within though this doesn’t always happen. They will still go with whoever is the best candidate, which is how it should be. Depending on which department you’re in, compensation can vary but it is definitely decent. They also do a lot of supplementary training with everyone at the resort to make sure we maintain exceptional customer service standards and know how to remain safe in the workplace. Overall, I’ve been enjoying my time with the company! They also throw fun events such as the New Years Gala- food, drinks, dj, dancing and photo booth. It’s always a great time!” —Current Employee

If you are a self-starter and like working with talented people then this would be a good fit. It is a very fast-paced environment and things change from time to time but that is to be expected in a start-up. Gregg and Evan do their best to keep everyone in the loop! People here are very nice and everyone gets along, we do a lot of team building activities and there are food and beverages stocked in our fridge at all times. Oh ya, they do your laundry too.

Hiring For: Customer Service Representative, Enterprise Data Architect, HR Business Analyst, Network Support Specialist, Director of Pre-Construction, Production Web Administrator and more

If you need support – it is there for you if you ask. A lot of people talk about the growth potential that PS offers, and I am living proof of how successful you can be here. I have been with the company for just over 3 years and have been successfully promoted multiple times! You won’t find that kind of growth potential in normal retail hours.” —Current Employee

5. Zumasys
Perks: International travel incentive program, employee appreciation week, learning and development program, and more
Hiring For: Technical Support Engineer and Solutions Consultant
What Employees Say: “As a co-founder of Zumasys, I can tell you that we value hard work, achievement and perpetuating an environment that challenges our people to continually evolve. People are at the heart of everything we do and I personally want you to reach your full career potential and increase the quality of your life in the process. We ask everyone at Zumasys to “be happy and be nice” and we have created many unique incentive programs over the years to make that journey as awesome as possible (most of which have been mentioned on Glassdoor). We are always experimenting and investing in cultural programs to see if we can go further. But hands-down, the single most gratifying aspect of working at Zumasys is the “purpose in our work,” which we have all been benefiting from over the past 5 years. We are achieving this through our Happyness is a Choice program, which donates a portion of our sales and encourages volunteering with non-profits and people in need. We remain a work-in-progress. As we’ve grown, it has become harder to scale our processes. At times, that has meant making very difficult staffing decisions. More often it has meant hiring exceptional new talent and adding new, capable faces to our growing management team—we have a proven history of promoting from within. It has also become more challenging to acknowledge our people and our wins as we scale but we remain committed to this ideal.” —Current President
