Looking to hire? A LinkedIn survey reveals the Valley's top 10 start-ups, based on their interactions with developers and engineers.
In Silicon Valley, start-ups and tech giants are as ubiquituous as the software engineers who come to work for them.
But because these engineers are so in-demand, it often creates a recruiting battle between the old guard and the promising young start-ups. Even worse, because all these companies are on the lookout for fresh talent, they put much of the power in the hands of engineers.
To that end, LinkedIn compiled its second-annual list of the Top 10 InDemand Startups, basing its ranking on LinkedIn activity between more than 287,000 engineers from the Bay Area. This list shows which Silicon Valley start-ups are winning the battle for top talent -- perhaps you've heard of a few of them.
