Types of Tech Companies

Many of the world’s largest companies inevitably have a hand in technology, making a “tech company” difficult to define. For instance, Amazon has tech product business areas, such as artificial intelligence and cloud computing, but Amazon is primarily a retail company. Netflix, too, is a major player in the tech space, but the company is typically considered a media and entertainment organization. 

Careers in technology are expanding at a rapid rate, whether the definition of a “tech company” is clear or not. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers in tech, information, and computer science industries are expected to add around 377,500 openings each year from 2022 to 2032 — a much faster growth rate than the average for all occupations. 

Tech companies offer a wide range of products and services, leading to nearly limitless career options. Some technology subsectors to consider include:

  • Electronics and electrical equipment 
  • Computer software
  • Computers and office equipment
  • Information technology services
  • Network and communications equipment
  • Semiconductors and electronic components
  • Telecommunications
