While you may have aspirations of starting your career in the tech world at a place like Google or Facebook, your best bet for finding a job may actually be at mid-sized tech companies that are gaining momentum.

At least that’s what Wealthfront, an online financial investment management company, suggests.

Companies like Warby Parker and Slack may not have revenue in the billions like Google just yet, but they already have a cult following and billion-dollar valuations that will likely project them to even bigger and better things. Why wouldn’t you want to be on board for the ride?

To help you find these promising tech companies, Wealthfront just released its 2016 Career-launching Companies List, which includes 136 companies with revenues between $US20 million and $US300 million that are on a trajectory to grow at a rate in excess of 50% over at least the next four years.

Below are an unranked sampling of some of the great companies to consider applying to. For the full list, head over to Wealthfront.
