Young companies offer an average wage of £36,344

Research published on Friday shows that despite the fact that one in ten Computer Science graduates remain unemployed, there are currently 2,697 tech startup  job vacancies being advertised in the UK.

The study was conducted by business profiling service Duedil.com in partnership with classified ad search engine Adzuna, and serves as a testament to the economic prowess of Tech City and Silicon Roundabout.

What recession?

The majority of new tech startup jobs (1627) are located in London. Not surprisingly, most of them are clustered around Old Street, with Silicon Roundabout as the main focus point. Clerkenwell, which forms part of East London’s Tech City, also has its fair share of new employment opportunities, as does Soho – historically a hub for media, art and design.

Onefinestay, a website which offers users to rent or let their property to tourists, is looking for 24 employees. Meanwhile, Moshi Monsters creator Mind Candy needs 23 people to push its brand even further.

Potential applicants will need to brush up on their Tech speak. Adverts used to describe the vacancies are full of buzzwords like “Big Data” (133 mentions), “Social Discovery” (72 mentions) and “Augmented Reality” (106 mentions).

No doubt, many similar jobs will be on offer at the next Silicon Milkroundabout event, an annual job fair for for IT graduates.
