Sifted ( is the media platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. Two years after launching, we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints, and a must-read for many founders, investors, and people working in startups across the continent.

Our branding on SnapHR sucks - please check our website : )

Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing after the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles, and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way.

We have grown from a standing start to over 500,000 monthly unique visitors, and over 60,000 newsletter subscribers, and have a lively social media following, but there is much more to be done to both grow and consolidate our readership – and ship new products. Our team in London is expanding rapidly and we’re looking for talented people to join.

While HQed in London, we are open to semi-remote applicants — ie. people who could travel in a couple of days per week. During the lockdowns, we have been working fully remotely.

We're growing rapidly (hiring 1 person every week or so) and expect to double our engineering team by the end of the year - join journey!
