 All eyes on FinTech startup Swyftx: Australia’s fastest-growing Cryptocurrency platform

Love it or hate it, you can’t deny the impact cryptocurrency has had on the world. The multi-trillion dollar industry continues to revolutionize the way everyday Australians transact and do business. It’s no surprise that over 1 million Australians now own some form of cryptocurrency.

But things weren’t quite that way when Swyftx started. Founded in 2018 by friends Alex Harper and Angus Goldman, Swyftx was created when they realised that it was almost impossible for Australians to buy and trade cryptocurrency.

And so began the journey of two friends chasing one big dream. They set out to create a digital exchange where users could easily buy, sell and trade crypto from the comfort of their phones.

Fast forward just a few short years later, the company now processes billions of dollars in trading volume each month with the help of their 250 employees. Their beginner-friendly, easy-to-use crypto exchange garnered over 500,000 users from all around the globe.

With their unprecedented growth and international expansion plans, Swyftx is on a hiring spree, looking to bring on top tech talent to continue their rapid scaling.

Jordan Divertie, Senior Tech Recruiter at Swyftx, recently told TechLifeSydney that they’re primarily looking to hire for Engineering, Security and Product roles, and are also looking to fill in Marketing, Finance, and Operational positions.


“To achieve the goals we have set for this year we need so many more people in the team. The impact that these people will have coming into Swyftx will be monumental from day one!”
