Gone are the days of standing in long queues to withdraw or deposit money at a bank. The financial technology (Fintech) sector is redefining the way we track, manage, and facilitate our finance on a daily basis. From digital wallets to mobile banking, fintech companies have simplified our lives in many ways.

Though the fintech industry is relatively new in India as compared to other countries, it has shown promising growth. According to India Fintech Report 2019, there were only 737 fintech startups in the country. And in 2019, the number has increased to 2,035, making it the world’s second biggest fintech hub, next to the US. The report says the fintech sector has raised $2 billion in funding across 165 deals in 2018 alone, with payments constituting the largest share, followed by lending, wealth tech, personal finance, insurtech, regtech, and others.

The sunrise industry has also given a boost to job creation. If you are determined to make a cut into the fintech domain, YourStory has curated a list of jobs.
