Guys, FinTech is the place to be.
Around this time every year, we have a look through all of our site’s data from the last 12 months, to see if there are any stand out trends we should be aware of.
2020 has seen two major trends in the world of working. Last week, we wrote about how influential remote working has been this year (no real surprise).
The other stand out trend from 2020 has been FinTech, and the growth of the industry. For those of you that don’t know, FinTech (Financial technology) is the technology and innovation that aims to compete with traditional financial methods in the delivery of financial services.
It is an emerging industry that uses technology to improve activities in finance. The functionality of FinTech is supported by the use of technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence, biometrics, eCommerce, and many more.
Companies like Monzo and Revolut are two of the biggest FinTechs in the world at the moment.
It’s an industry that’s in no danger of slowing down; in fact, the global FinTech market is predicted to grow at a rate of almost 25% annually over the next couple of years.
Over the last 12 months, here at Jobbio we’ve seen eight times more jobs posted in the FinTech industry than we did in 2019. That’s a massive jump… especially when you consider the fact that we had a global pandemic to deal with.
We expect this to be a major trend moving into 2021, with an even bigger increase in the number of FinTech jobs posted. So if you’re looking for an exciting role in an even more exciting industry – keep a close eye.
We also spotted that pageviews for FinTech jobs have trebled on Jobbio between 2019 and 2020. So if you’re a hiring manager in a FinTech company – it’s good news for you too!
All in all, Financial Tech seems to be where it’s at folks!
