So, anyone know of a company in Europe willing to hire and import a software engineer from the US? Asking for a friend.
@brainblasted …well the local companies involved in FOSS I can think of around are Igalia… maybe Codethink or Collabora if you count the UK… maybe SUSE… Linaro?????
@brainblasted then again, you can just try to go to the big US corporations who have offices around here like Red Hat
oh and there’s Canonical ofc (again UK)
@brainblasted I think Sweden has a programme specifically targeting US tech workers, I will check if I can find a link
@brainblasted sorry got it wrong, it was Finland https://globetrender.com/2020/12/09/finland-offers-tech-workers-free-relocation-packages-helsinki/
@brainblasted https://tripaneer.recruitee.com/o/software-development-engineer we have a position open and do relocation and visa (if eligible).
@brainblasted We're always looking for interesting profiles who may fit Igalia, and we have experience helping out people get visas and move to Spain.
Take a look at https://www.igalia.com/jobs and please don't be discouraged by the seemingly very specialized roles we search for—we've hired folks from the GNOME community before, and as long as you wouldn't mind working in one of those areas, having paid time for learning should not be an issue.
@brainblasted Atlassian might do it. They are hiring lots of people right now globally. And have been known to move people around from the USA and elsewhere.
@brainblasted Sentry's Vienna office already has hired several ppl from the US and still hiring. If the company interests you but current open roles don't let me know, I can see if they're interested anyway
@brainblasted Yes. LGI is an English speaking complay. We have offices at Schiphol Rijk in the Netherlands.
