LinkedIn recently released their top startups to watch in 2021, and there’s no surprise that several fintech companies are at the top of their list.
For years we have been watching fintech companies like Ally and Chime take the banking industry by storm, and in return, many big banks have tried to assimilate to this so-called “new standard” that fintech companies have created.
Yet, in today’s labor market, the competition for talent is stiff, and it may be affecting your fintech company’s growth as we speak. If this is the case, no worries, we’re here to help. Keep on reading for four tips on the best fintech recruitment practices!
- Use Social Media
Millennials are known for being digital natives, and chances are if you’re looking to hire someone who is going to be a gamechanger to your company, it’s going to be a new hire in the millennial generation. This is why it is possible you would make your very first interactions with them on social media. Let’s face it, job boards alone aren’t going to cut it; as technology advances, we’ll see more new hires come from places like Reddit, Slack, Instagram, and TikTok.
The main channels you’re reaching your consumer target audience is on social media, so why wouldn’t you use it to attract the best talent? Spread the word on your job openings by incorporating social media ads, and be sure to ask your friends to share the post to get access to as many networks as possible.

- Fair Compensation
The tech industry is known for paying considerably high salaries, and if you’re going to attract the best fintech job seekers, you best believe they’re going to expect nothing less. As much as it pains us to say it, take a look at your competitor’s salaries on job boards and see what they’re offering their employees with similar job descriptions. If you have the budget, you’re going to need to spend it to get the talent you know your team deserves. Now more than ever, the most qualified job seekers know their worth, and a good-paying job is at the top of their list of non-negotiables.
