100 Best Companies to Work for
Junior Software Engineer by Total Comp in 2022

According to statistics, only 47% of software engineers work with a company for a year or two. The most common reason we have found them switching jobs is seeking an upgrade in career path or stepping up for a new challenge. 

If you’re planning to switch jobs, you’ll find this article valuable. This article is focused on the 100 best companies to work for fresher or junior-level resources. We have provided each company’s important information such as Blind ratings, location of headquarters, the total number of employees (global headcount), name of CEO, related industry, company type and compensation breakups. The companies are sorted by total compensation.

Let’s dive deep to know more about the best places to work!

Methodology

The “100 Best Companies to Work For as a Junior Software Engineer” list determines the finest corporations to work for at the position of a junior technology resource. 

To craft this list, our experts first sorted out companies from the publicly traded top 500 highest market cap US-based tech companies ranked at marketcap.com. We added famous Series B and above startups and some tech-heavy non-tech firms as well to the mix, depending on their comp data public availability.

After finalizing the list of good companies to work for in the USA, we collected Software Engineer salaries from Glassdoor.com and Levels.fyi. Years of experience chosen for this purpose were 0-1 yrs, that is to say, entry-level experience. While the data is current as of 13 October 2022. 

Junior Software Engineer positions in the list are software engineer, software developer, data scientist, network engineer, and other relevant job titles. Lastly, after gathering salaries information, the list was sorted in descending order from highest to lowest paying companies. Besides the top 100 tech companies by total comp, we also added 10 honorable mentions for firms that are well-known but did not make the cut for the top 100 companies to work for. Let us know if you would like a company to be added to the mix.
