Working for a startup can be a challenging task. However, a fast-paced environment, rapid growth and constant challenges make for a perfect learning environment. If you are someone who is looking to work at a notable startup, Otta has published its Rocket List of 50 top growing start-ups and scale-ups. There are also some unicorns in the mix such as Revolut, Gousto and Hopin. Most of the listed companies are also looking to hire fresh talent.
Putting job seekers first
The startup Otta aims to deliver relevant and personalised job recommendations by going beyond traditional methods. It uses data and gathers real-time feedback from job seekers. Founded in June 2019, Otta has raised €954K in seed funding and has been publishing its Rocket List of top growing startups since the past three years.
This year’s list includes some renown companies such as Cazoo, Hopin, and Gousto, along with fintech firms Revolut and Checkout.com. Overall, 50 companies are listed that have been selected based on their level of financial investment, the number of jobs available, employee growth, and their corporate mission and purpose.
This year’s list was curated by a panel of experts, which includes several leading VC firms like LocalGlobe, Atomico, Seedcamp, Accel, and Amadeus Capital, along with the UK’s tech entrepreneurial network Tech Nation.
Otta also notes that four startups and scaleups – Cleo, Revolut, TrueLayer, WhiteHat – have appeared on the Rocket List three years in a row. This is being contributed to their consistent growth and hiring.
