London has long been the European epicentre of tech and innovation. The city is home to over 180,000 tech companies, from groundbreaking startups to large corporations, and it has some of the most daring tech companies at its centre. (Google’s AI-centred DeepMind stands out as an example of this.)
The capital’s cosmopolitan environment attracts talent from all over the world, bringing the best developers, project managers and more into its thriving tech ecosystem. Over 260,000 residents are employed in digital tech roles, spread across a variety of tech clusters dotted around the city.
Entrepreneurs in particular flock to the city’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’, where – despite the threat of Brexit looming – innovative startups regularly receive funding in the millions. There’s never been a better time to find a new job in London.
Tech for good and FinTech in particular are driving the startup and scaleups in the city.

London is without doubt one of the greatest cities in the world. A city that never sleeps, whatever you are into London will cater for it. It's a city steeped in history brought to life by it's diverse, creative, ambitious residents.
On the flip side some aspects of living in London are unavoidable. You'll pay a premium for everything from your morning coffee to rental accommodation. In fact, unless your salary is within the top 30% of earners you'll likely be flat sharing or facing a long busy commute in and out of the city.
If you're working for one of major financial businesses which make up a huge number of the tech roles in the city you'll likely based in and around Canary Wharf, for the remaining digital tech professionals working for creatives or startups you'll have the pick of tech clusters spread across the city.
