Help with understanding for a potential move to Switzerland.

Hi there!

My name is Rupert Adams and I am a Software Developer from the UK. Considering everything that is happening here, and the fact that my wife is Hungarian, we are considering our options for if Britain turns out to not be for us. We travelled through Switzerland before and fell in love with a few of the cities we saw. I was wondering if I could ask some general questions here to get an idea about if it is possible/ feasible for us to consider a move to Switzerland in the near future?

I think at first I'd like to know:

1.) Is there much of a demand for Software Developers / Data scientists (hopefully in the near future I'll be trained as such!) in Switzerland? And if so are there specific language requirements to start working? I am aware that learning the language of where we settle would be necessary as it is, but as I don't speak German, French or Italian very well yet I would need to work on that.

2.) Is working as an expat in Switzerland mentally healthy? Do expats find themselves fitting in well or is it a struggle to integrate? I am aware that there are a lot of factors to determine this I would just like to know people's experiences!

3.) Is it hard to exist as an expat outside of the city centres? We have a dog with us and would preferably like some outdoor space in our rental accommodation so I was wondering if it is harder for expats outside of the cities?

4.) Is it possible for my wife to join me residing in Switzerland if I have an accepted job? She is an EU citizen and would be looking for work as well, we are just trying to work out the logistics!

Any information would be greatly appreciated as I'd love Switzerland to be an open option for us! If you want to know anything else please don't hesitate to ask me!

Thank you!
