Our methodology

With all the fantastic companies in London, it's tricky to pick the best companies to dig deep into. So we relied on five areas:

  1. Plenty of jobs available. Given our list is for job-seekers, we looked for companies that are looking to expand their team.
  2. Purpose. We focused our attention on companies that are innovative in their field, and have a strong mission.
  3. High growth. It's hard to find a metric for growth to compare all companies. We considered the recent fundraises and employee growth as this data is readily available.
  4. Strong investors. A well-known investor (e.g. Index Ventures, who backed Facebook) is a useful signal that the company is going places. The investor will have done their homework to test the market, the business potentional, the management team's capabilities, etc.
  5. Experts. This year we worked with a panel of experts to help us reach the final shortlist
