Top 30 mission-driven Fintech companies to work for in 2021

With more unicorns spawned than any other industry in Europe, in recent years. More startups are entering the Fintech market and employees are following too.

When you’re looking for a new role, how do you decide which Fintech to apply for? It should start with the company’s mission—or lack of. If a company's mission is clear, then you’re more likely to be aligned as a team and enjoy fulfilling work. A defined mission is a good indicator of a company's future success. Sometimes it’s a case of David vs Goliath. A small connected team with a powerful mission beats a corporate dinosaur that’s lost its way. Mission-driven companies instil passion and drive—and you’ll have a job you can spring out of bed for.

We’ve done the research for you and whittled down the most passionate, mission-driven Fintech's that are making a positive impact. Here are the top 30 Fintech's to work for this year.
