Flagstone, the UK’s largest cash deposit platform, has been recognised in LinkedIn’s ‘Top Startup’ list celebrating the fastest growing and most exciting new companies to work for in the UK.
London based FinTech, Flagstone, has been included in LinkedIn’s 2019 Top Startups, which reveals the 25 hottest UK startups to work for; companies which are 7 years old or younger, growing massively, disrupting industries, shifting talent flows around the world and, often, altering how we work and live.
The LinkedIn Top Startups list is derived from a blended score, parsed from billions of actions generated by LinkedIn’s 645 million members, looking at factors including employment growth, engagement with the company and its employees, job interest, and the ability to attract top talent.
Flagstone’s Chief People Officer, Susanna Brown, said:
“Flagstone has enjoyed incredible growth since its inception in 2013, in equal measure because of our unique FinTech value proposition and the passion and dedication of our people.
"The growth we’re experiencing in the market, in terms of the accelerating number of clients using the platform and the billions of pounds transmitted through it, has been reflected by the rapid growth in our fantastic team. We’re building high performing teams within centres of excellence across all areas of our business. It’s been an exciting experience to have grown the business to this stage of its development so quickly, and it’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity for anybody who joins us on the next part of our journey!”

LinkedIn Top Startup Award methodology:
LinkedIn measures startups based on four pillars: employment growth, engagement, job interest and attraction of top talent. Employment growth is measured as percentage headcount increase over one year, which must be a minimum of 15%. Engagement looks at non-employee views and follows of the company’s LinkedIn page, as well as how many non-employees are viewing employees at that startup. Job interest counts the rate at which people are viewing and applying to jobs at the company, including both paid and unpaid postings. Attraction of top talent measures how many employees the startup has recruited away from LinkedIn Top Companies, as a percentage of the startup’s total workforce. Data is normalized across all eligible startups. The methodology time frame is July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.
