List of tech companies hiring in San Francisco

I recently left my job at Ning, where I’d worked for the last four years, to take a job at Zimride, a ridesharing company. After Ning was acquired, I made a list of local companies that were hiring in case I started looking for work.

While I was looking for product manager and product designer postings in particular, my list eventually came to include companies hiring for any kind of jobs in San Francisco (and a few elsewhere). I figured other people might get some use out of this list. Of course, be sure to check the Zimride Jobs page first!
