Berlin’s technology scene is booming. The German capital is home to a vibrant startup community, with 500 new tech companies being founded every year and a well-established infrastructure for financing and funding. VC companies, incubators, accelerators and coworking spaces in the city all provide tech entrepreneurs with the perfect combination of support and opportunity to succeed.
Unemployment in Berlin is currently the lowest it’s ever been, at less than 8% – and skilled candidates are in high demand, particularly in the technology and digital sector where the need for software development and data science jobs is soaring. The areas of health technology, cyber security, machine learning/AI and fintech are all seeing incredible growth, within startups and large corporations alike. The freelance and contractor market in Berlin is also growing fast, and there’s no shortage of opportunities for tech professionals who prefer to work for themselves.

LIVING IN THE CITY
Berlin is one of Europe’s best cities to live in. Its open-mindedness and friendly vibe are immediately apparent to anyone visiting, and its low cost of living attracts people from all over the world. This makes Berlin an incredibly cosmopolitan city, where diverse cultures and communities come together in harmony. And we couldn’t talk about Berlin without mentioning its world-famous nightlife: from techno clubs to tiny independent punk bars, there’s something for everyone.
Compared to most major European cities, Berlin is also surprisingly cheap to live in. Rents remain fairly affordable even in the most hip areas, while public transport is widely available and a single ticket allows you to travel on buses, U-Bahns, trains and more within the city.
