Every year, LinkedIn publishes a list of companies that are most “in-demand” in America, based on the billions of interactions it sees between companies and members of its site.

The ranking, called the “Top 100 Most InDemand Employers,” looks at things like each company’s reach, engagement, and job activity, and measures how popular it is among LinkedIn members.

It also breaks down the list by industries, and the tech sector accounted for the highest share (29% of total) this year.

We pulled the 11 most in-demand tech companies from the list.
