Where to find frontend web development job at the lead/architect level?

I've been doing frontend web development for around 15 years and want to find a new position at the lead/architect level. I know a few sites to look at, and plenty of recruiters contact me, but what else can I do?

My issue is that most of the jobs I'm hearing about are still more "Sr. Frontend Developer," which is a step down in title (and usually in salary) from where I am now.
Venues I've explored:
Putting my resume on Dice and waiting for recruiters to call
Personal networking via twitter, etc.
I am aware of indeed.com but haven't tried it yet
But I feel like I'm missing something as far as finding the more senior jobs (though I have been contacted about a few.) Are there any other sites I can try? Should I look at company websites directly and if so, can anyone recommend any in particular? Are there any reputable recruiters who specialize in this area?
I'm in L.A. and not looking to relocate, though I would definitely be open to remote work. In a *very* extreme edge case I might be willing to start for a few months in the Bay area, if I could work remotely from L.A. after that.
