There are currently 2,697 tech start-up job vacancies being advertised in the UK, with 60 percent of these in London, according to new figures from jobs search engine Adzuna.
Adzuna said such data, processed with the help of analytics firm Duedil.com, has never before been released.
Start-up vacancies have increased 33 percent in the last three months, and the sector promises healthy opportunities for the 7,000 computer science graduates who will be graduating this summer from university.
Also, according to the data, a quarter of start-ups currently hiring in the UK are offering stock to graduates.
"It's amazing to see the start-up scene in the UK really starting to boom and it's even better to see the brightest minds in the UK picking jobs in start-ups," said Andrew Hunter, Adzuna co-founder.
"It definitely feels like we're experiencing a new wave of entrepreneurial activity in Britain today."
The figures show that the average start-up wage for an advertised job is £36,344, which compares to the £51,158 average salary working in IT banking.
The top three hiring start-ups are Badoo, Onefinestay and Mind Candy.
In related news a number of banks and venture capital firms, along with consultancy Accenture have launched the FinTech Innovation Lab in London to help accelerate technology innovation in the financial services sector.
The Lab will identify technology entrepreneurs through a competition and then give them the opportunity to develop and test their innovations under the mentorship of top executives from financial institutions that include the Bank of America, Barclays and Goldman Sachs.
"London is the world's number one financial centre and a global leader in technology innovation, which is why the FinTech quest for entrepreneurs is such an exciting proposition," said mayor of London, Boris Johnson.
"The project has huge potential to help spur jobs and growth and I'm sure will attract some very bright minds whose inventions could help to revolutionise the financial services of this great city."
The announcements are just the latest in the growing tech buzz around London, with Amazon and Yammer both opening London-based offices in recent weeks.
