Best way to find a software job in Switzerland?

Hey there!

I am considering moving to Switzerland (German speaking part). Is it easy to find a dev job here as a newcomer with relatively decent experience (fluent in German & 4 years of JS, React, Vue and some Python)?

Do you have any job boards/websites/recruiters to recommend? Maybe LinkedIN is a better option?

What are your experiences (question especially for expats)?

Re: Best way to find a software job in Switzerland?

You only get hired if you can show your adeptness at using search functions on internet sites.

Seriously, this question, or variants thereof are asked frequently on the forum

https://www.englishforum.ch/search2.php?q=it+job

Suggest you have a dig around and post questions indicating what your research has indicated so far.

HTH.
Nick

Fluent in German and web/frontend experience... I've seen many compatible offers during my own search last autumn, I think you have a chance.

I'd recommend you to use good ol' JobServe for IT roles, or simply Indeed.
