The biggest component of finding a good employer, assuming you're good, 
is networking.  Good people like to work with other good people, and 
they like to go within their network for sharing information and finding 
new people/organizations.

Secondarily, remember that when you're interviewing for a job, it's 
actually true that you should be evaluating the company as much as 
they're evaluating you.  (Don't let them confuse you about the dynamic 
with the "Now is the time in interview when you code/dance for our 
amusement!  Pet my monkey!" routine.)  Are the people you're talking 
with brilliant, engineering-inclined, and enthusiastic, in general and 
about the work itself, and do they seem to honestly encourage you to 
work there?  It doesn't count if they're excited only about their 
weekend projects, or about spending most of each workday on Reddit.
