Finance and fintech are slowly but surely becoming two of the same. Even the legacy firms that have roots going back hundreds of years are beefing up their technology staff as the world becomes increasingly digital.

The breadth of the definition of ‘fintech’ grows with every passing day, which is good news if it’s a sector you’re interested in entering into. The variety and opportunity in the field has never been greater, and these companies are all excellent choices for your next job application.
