Fintech firms are some of the best startups to work for in the UK, a Tech Nation-backed report has found. 

Startups like Revolut and Checkout.com also offer the most roles for job seekers, according to tech recruitment firm Otta and its annual 'Rocket lLst'.

The list, which includes input from Tech Nation, features 50 of the UK's most promising early-stage businesses and 47% of them are fintech companies. These were also cited as firms more likely to hire, with startups like Revolut currently posting 79 vacancies. 

The 50 companies have been selected based on their level of financial investments, job listings, employee growth and their own mission statements. Collectively, the startups have raised £2.1 billion in funding and 2,695 jobs.  

This is the third year in a row that Revolut has made the Rocket List due to its consistent growth and hiring. The challenger bank has been one of the few businesses continuing to post job listings throughout the pandemic, advertising 327 jobs throughout 2020 - more than any other scale-up, according to Otta.

Checkout.com has also continued to hire with 69 roles currently available. The company's CEO, Guillaume Pousaz, said that more jobs will be listed throughout the year. 

"We continued to hire in 2020 adding 500 people to the organisation and we'll add another 500 or more people to our global teams in 2021," said Pousaz.

"One of our values is "unite", and whilst our ability to get together in person has been severely impacted this year, our team spirit and collaboration across our departments and offices is as good as it has ever been. Our people are at the heart of our business - I firmly believe in investing in their future and I'm incredibly excited about what we will build together in 2021." 

Gerard Grech, the chief executive of Tech Nation, called tech industry the "fastest-growing" sector in the UK economy as it now employs nearly three million people.  "This makes it an engine room of high-value, highly-skilled and well-paid jobs, and an attractive place for those looking to make their move in an exciting and fast-growing sector," he said. "With such a vast pool of scale-ups eager for new talent, the Rocket List's comprehensive view helps to identify the most exciting opportunities available in London today."
