HiveWatch earns Best Startups to Work For in Los Angeles


El Segundo, Calif., Jan. 9, 2024 — Built In today announced that HiveWatch was honored in its 2024 Best Places To Work Awards. Specifically, HiveWatch earned a place on Best Startups to Work For in Los Angeles. The annual awards program includes companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in large tech markets across the U.S.


“HiveWatch was built to change the security industry, and we wanted to do that by building a more diverse team made up of not only industry experts, but leading innovators from outside the field to advance what is often seen as a slow-to-innovate industry,” said Ryan Schonfeld, Founder & CEO, HiveWatch. “To be featured on this list alongside other great companies in a city we call home is an honor – and I hope we can keep building something truly unique that continues to attract top talent.”


Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation and benefits. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.

The future is filled with promise and we are so excited to see what lies ahead.”
