103 Tech Companies and Startups Headquartered in San Diego

San Diego has sunny weather, a large military presence, great Mexican food, plenty of breweries, fabulous beaches and a thriving tech scene. Most of the posts out there of "top tech companies in San Diego" don't do the sector justice so we're here to change that. Using data we at Employbl have harvested from the public web we're going to showcase one hundred and three tech companies and startups that are headquartered out of San Diego. This list won't show any companies that have satellite offices in San Diego, we're only looking at headquarters location. In the list we'll have the company name with a link to view more about them, the founded year, the latest funding investment round, total investment amount and a short description about the company. There are about 40 more companies in our database that are headquartered in San Diego but we've determined they haven't raised Venture Capital and the list is pretty long already so we decided not to include them. You can find the full list of San Diego tech companies by logging in and navigating to the companies search. To learn more about an individual company click on their profile to see jobs the company is hiring for, Venture Capital and Private Equity firms that have invested in the business, historical funding rounds and information about the founders.
