Surfing the Tide of Tech in Los Angeles

Tech is riding high in Southern California where we’re longtime residents of Silicon Beach—Santa Monica, Venice, Marina del Rey, Playa Vista and El Segundo–where tech companies are thriving. The demand for tech talent is high, with the 100 largest tech companies in the area increasing hiring by 24% in the last year, and LA and Orange County startups received $15 billion in funding in the last 18 months.

Riviera knows tech, and we know LA’s tech scene. We’ve helped industry-leading enterprises and brand new start-ups identify and secure top tech talent that is rewriting the rules of media, movies and music. We know the companies, the rock star tech leaders, and the investors who are fueling LA’s tech market boom. We have thousands of connections to technologists that span tech, entertainment and media, consumer products and services, and tech infrastructure. We capture each candidate or client interaction in our proprietary recruiting platform. Machine learning algorithms match the right candidates to the right opportunities and transparently track the process.

We know tech in Los Angeles. And, we take success seriously. Together with our clients, we land the right hires quickly and efficiently — with a 95% success rate.

LA Leadership

Eric Larson

Partner

I have more than 25 years of experience in building public, P/E and venture backed technology companies. At Riviera Partners, I am responsible for executive level searches in Riviera’s retained practice. Prior to joining Riviera I have been the President or CFO of three different technology companies. I have always loved the process of identifying and attracting the best talent. I also spent 9 years with Arthur Andersen, where I worked with companies ranging from start up’s through to multi-billion dollar public companies.
