LinkedIn has released its second annual ‘Top Startups’ ranking, uncovering the young Aussie companies that all of you want to work for.
To be eligible, companies have to be seven years old or younger, have at least 50 employees and be privately held and headquartered in Australia.
Aside from these hard requirements, the real focus of the list was to award those startups that were growing with pace in a turbulent industry, shifting talent flows around the world and ultimately altering how both their employees (and we as consumers) work and live.
These are the top 25 most sought-after startups Australians want to work for in 2019. For the full criteria and a breakdown on each, head to LinkedIn.com
