Often ranked as one of the top companies to work for, Google has become synonymous with “cool place to work.” But, believe us when we tell you that the tech giant doesn’t monopolize that market.

As a matter of fact, we’ve pulled together 19 companies that are just as awesome as Google (maybe even more so!), offering everything from brag-worthy perks to the chance to work on innovative products. And, the best part? They’re all hiring right now.

So, polish up your resume, submit your application, and prepare to do what you always thought was impossible: Making Google employees jealous of your sweet new job.

Googlers love giving back to their community, and the same can be said for the team members at Vanguard. The company provides staff with plenty of community service opportunities, an annual volunteer paid day off, and a salary withdrawal program where employees can designate a portion of their paycheck to be donated to an organization of their choosing.

Better Mortgage is a full-stack mortgage company connecting consumers directly to funders, speeding and simplifying the process to purchase or refinance a home.

If you’ve always envied the sense of pride and ownership Googlers have over their work, Better could be the perfect place for you. The CEO imagines a future with entrepreneurial employees all spearheading development in specific areas so designated managers aren’t needed. Instead of passing ideas up a command chain, team members share informal collaborations that naturally form teams to achieve milestones.

7. Nexus

Nexus lets real estate companies manage their invoices and pay their vendors with clicks and keystrokes, not paper. Its cloud-based accounts payable software automates every step of the procurement process, enabling AP teams to simplify their day-to-day and gain much-needed visibility, accountability, and control.

Google is big on trust and transparency, and so is the team at Nexus. Each Friday, all employees—from the CEO to entry-level interns—gather together to discuss the company’s direction, strategy, values, and mission. By ensuring alignment toward one purpose, the organization enables employees to assert their own judgement in situations throughout the week.

But, if you hear this name and only think cell phone plans, you’re sorely mistaken. AT&T spearheads fast-paced sprint projects and deploys smart technology for external startups, innovators, entrepreneurs, academics, and inventors. “At AT&T, we’re working on many different innovative and intuitive telepresence and applications projects—beyond cell phones,” adds Nancy Dominguez, Traffic Manager.
