Boston, MA — home of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots, the capital and largest city of Massachusetts, and the so-called “City on a Hill” and the “Cradle of Liberty.”

Boston is also home to a vibrant tech startup scene with clusters of companies popping up all over the city. Traditionally the city’s tech companies were located along Route 128, Massachusetts’ so-called “Tech Corridor,” and many large companies still exist there, but the area was largely abandoned by newer companies as Silicon Valley came to prominence. But now, thanks to a new influx of companies and the resulting clusters of techie culture.

Today, Boston is still one of the fastest growing cities in America. But with all the new tech companies cropping up everyday, it begs the question: which companies are the best for employees to work for?

We were curious — so, using company scores from websites that aggregate reviews like GlassDoor and Indeed as a baseline, we created our own list of some of the best companies to work for that were based within a 30-mile commute of Boston, MA.

The full list can be found further down, but first, here’s a quick look.

  1. PatientPing
  2. Kuvée
  3. Drift
  4. Insurify
  5. GreatHorn
  6. Podium Data Inc.

  9. doDOC
  10. CollegeVine
