This weekend, the Boston Globe published its annual list of the top places to work, breaking the list down by company size. But what if we took a look at the companies by type — specifically, what are the best technology places to work?

Our research partner, WorkplaceDynamics, ran through the numbers again (135,000 employees were contacted!) and pulled out just the tech companies that topped the list.

These are companies that employees feel like they’re being fairly compensated, that the company has a plan for the future, and that the employees are making an impact on whether or not the company actually succeeds (Read the full criteria here).

Here, in order of their appearance on the other top places lists, are Boston’s best technology companies to work for:

— Enterasys Networks, Inc.

— HubSpot, Inc.

— Google

— Rapid7

— Akamai Technologies, Inc.

— Kronos Incorporated

— EMC Corporation

— Apperian, Inc

— athenahealth, Inc.

— Harmonix Music Systems

— Mimecast

— ConvergEx’s Eze Castle Software

— Imprivata

— KAYAK.com

— Care.com

— Black Duck Software

Interestingly, it seems like doing right by your employees might pay off for the bottom line, too: A number of these companies have been recently profiled on The Hive or by the Globe, and Hubspot, which ranked ninth in the list of large businesses, recently raised $35 million to continue building out its business.

Do you work at one of these top tech companies? Feel like another business should have made the list and didn’t? Let us know what it takes to be the best in Boston, via email at Hive@Boston.com or on Twitter at @HiveBoston.
