The ultimate guide to Advanced LinkedIn Company Search

In this article, I will take you through the various techniques to make a LinkedIn Company Search. These techniques range from straightforward to advanced, depending on what your needs are.

Find a specific company on LinkedIn with a name or a web domain.

The most straightforward Company Searches are to find a LinkedIn company profile from a company name. All you need is a name or the company's web domain.

With a name, you can use LinkedIn's search. With a domain, you will need a Google search.

Use LinkedIn search to find a company from its name.

  • Go to https://www.linkedin.com
  • In the search bar at the top, enter the company name and press Enter. For example: "nubela." After that, you will land on the search results page.
  • Click on the Companies button. This will show you the search results of companies only.
  • Done. The chances are that the company profile you are seeking is on the search result page now.

Use Google search to find a company from either name or website.

  1. Go to https://google.com
  2. Search using this search term linkedin.com/company/ <company_name OR company_domain>
  3. Done. The chances are that the profile you are seeking is on the search result pane now.

Find a list of companies matching industries, keywords, funding, etc.

It is trivial to perform a LinkedIn Company Search for a specific company. The harder task is to get a list of companies matching a list of constraints.

How do you find a list of companies?

  • From an industry?
  • That match specific keywords?
  • That meets a funding constraint?
  • Behind a particular app?
  • That uses a particular technology?
  • That pays for specific services?

First, you need the data, and Proxycurl's LinkDB has the following data for all 17+M companies that we have in our LinkDB company profile database:

  • Funding data
  • Published mobile apps
  • Web traffic
  • Web tech
  • Etc

However, these data is not easily accessible today, not by choice. But because working with "big data" is hard. If you need to match a list of companies that match the constraints I listed above, please send me an email at [email protected].
