San Francisco Jobs

Aside from the tri-state area of New York, San Francisco boasts more Fortune 500 headquarters than any other region.

The 800-pound, or we should say 800-byte digitally enhanced gorilla, in San Francisco is the tech sector of entertainment. If you like to play with 0's and 1's, you're in the right region and are arriving at the right time. Thanks to iPhones and HBO, we know that Silicon Valley is the destination for technology. The jobs that are most popular there are engineers, developers, and product managers.

Every time a bell rings, an angel investor gives their wings to a hot new startup CEO in the form of capital. You can check out any reputable business magazine for the startups to look out for and you will see that trend hunter based companies are trending. Everyone is still trying to figure out the digital space and a lot of smart people are using the internet to understand the internet. One Silicon Valley based company, Product Hunt, caught the eyes of the some of the most well-known tech investors. Product Hunt offers users, in a Reddit style, the latest on which mobile sites, apps, web sites and startups are the most popular day-to-day.

Another up-and-comer to keep an eye on is Pantheon which out of the gates had $17 million in startup funds. Patreaon, on Forbes' 2016 watch list, offers the largest crowdfunding resource to content creators (YouTubers, musicians, authors, writers, aka everyone.) The company, founded in 2013, already employs 40 people in the Bay Area.

Product Hunt and Patreon are part of the 13K plus startups with funding in the Bay Area that might be your next employer. And this of course is the startup market in San Francisco and its surrounding region. If you want to be on the work force for Google, Yahoo, or Apple, their headquarters are all in the Bay Area as well, specifically the Silicon Valley.

Oh and don't forget the biggest players in social media: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, all three in the top 30 best companies to work for in San Francisco, according to Glass Door.

Airbnb continues to impress not only travelers looking for a cheaper option but the people that work there. Glass Door voted Airbnb the number one place to work in San Francisco.

And even if you don't code or see the world in Java script, there are a plethora of other positions in the tech sector. Business development, marketing, finance, human resources, and facilities management are all in job market demand in the tech mecca.

The Bay Area is also home to some power players in film, animation, and gaming.

Here's a list of companies you could be looking to work for in the Bay Area:

  1. Electronic Arts in Redwood City
  2. Kerner Optical in San Rafael
  3. Lucasfilm Animation in San Rafael
  4. Netflix in Los Gatos
  5. Pandora Radio in Oakland
  6. Pixar in Emeryville
  7. Sega in San Francisco
  8. Skywalker Sound in San Rafael
  9. Sony Computer Entertainment in San Mateo
  10. Zynga in San Francisco

There are quite a bit of productions shot on location in and around San Francisco. A handful of TV series have been shot or are shooting in the Bay Area: including Silicon Valley, Looking and Million Dollar Listing San Francisco. Some notable films that were shot up in Northern California include Ant-Man, San Andreas, and Blue Jasmine.

Everyone is streaming Netflix now, literally. By 2010, Netflix was responsible for the biggest source of evening traffic in North America. Before the year is through, the company will have spent $6 billion dollars and produced 600 hours of original programming according to Entertainment Weekly. Some of the perks of working at this company, located an hour and half outside of San Francisco: unlimited vacation time for salaried employees, one year parental leave and the freedom to take any amount of a paycheck in the form of stock options, according to Glass Door.

If animation is your speed, there's nobody bigger than Pixar, located just 30 minutes outside the city of San Francisco. Its anti-conventional approach to non-contracted employees and its famous Pixar Braintrust have made this company a beacon for lifers in the field of animation.

Just like so many locales, San Francisco has jumped on the tax incentive bandwagon. The city offers a rebate program titled As Scene in San Francisco. Productions that qualify are entitled to a tax refund for payroll and city taxes up to $600,000 per production. This is a big draw for low-budget productions. And for larger productions, San Francisco also enjoys the tax incentives and rebates that the rest of the state does courtesy of the California Film and Television Tax Credit Program.

Large and small, there are plenty of opportunities to find entertainment work in the Golden Gate city.
