It's no surprise Boston has a vigorous financial industry. Home to notable financial institutions like Fidelity Investments, Putnam Investments and State Street Corp. (in addition to numerous hedge funds and private equity firms), Beantown has long been recognized for a finance sector that stretches well beyond its Financial District.
But as many who work in finance know, it’s an industry that’s slow to change. That's why in the past couple of decades, savvy tech entrepreneurs have taken opportunities to collaborate with the legacy financial sector and create booming fintech companies. Today, Boston is home to fintech startups changing the way people pay for things, spend and save. Here we’ve rounded up four fintech companies hiring right now.
