Given our aspiration to build an innovative hotel booking marketplace, combined with our fast growth, the challenges of a competitive market and demanding users, hiring talented people is a necessity. In order to do that, we don't let country borders bother us when it comes to finding great people that get the job done, looking for them all over the world: from Brazil to Ukraine, the US to Russia, France to India and from many other places across all continents.
And a very important note: if there’s a good match, we make sure to give you all the necessary support to get the documents, visas, relocation cost and other bureaucratic paperwork out of the way, for both you and your family, allowing you to come work and live in Amsterdam quickly and smoothly!
Victor Poluceno, a Data Engineer who moved here just one month ago from Brazil, shared a bit about how the moving process has gone since he was hired:
“I realized early on in my career that one of my professional goals would be to gain international work experience. I guess you can imagine how happy I was to be hired by a fast growing company like FindHotel, situated here in Amsterdam! After a warm welcome into the office, I quickly came to realize that I’m surrounded by kind, experienced, technical and competent colleagues, all while being surrounded by all the awesomeness that Amsterdam has to offer. Luckily, my entire move from Brazil to the Netherlands was facilitated by FindHotel, meaning that I didn’t have to worry about any of the paperwork and could focus completely on settling into the company and the country. I’ve also been fortunate enough to be able to share this entire experience with my wife and 5-month old daughter, who have joined me here in Amsterdam! ”
Moving abroad might seem a bit challenging, and the fact that we have people from all over the world working at FindHotel is always helpful, since everyone goes through issues, feelings, ups and downs. Alex Chisholm, a Senior Data Analyst from the US, shared how his experience has been since he moved 1 year ago:
"For the emotional and practical roller coaster we were on, the people at FindHotel offered constant guidance and support. In addition to handling the legal paperwork and coordinating our flights, several of my future colleagues gave advice on personal topics like neighborhoods, banks, and (perhaps most importantly) bikes. Once we arrived, the assistance continued. It helped that we were not alone as people from all over the world join FindHotel. This made it easy to find support and make new friends who were experiencing the same highs and lows that inevitably come with a move abroad.
It is hard to believe that a year has passed since we first moved to Amsterdam to join FindHotel. It’s harder to believe just how much it already feels like home."
Working at FindHotel means having opportunities that only a fast growing company can offer, and the chance to contribute to building a category leader at a global scale - today we’re present in over 120 countries across 40 different languages. Besides that, living in Amsterdam means being in a technological and cultural hub, with great travel possibilities within Europe and beyond. Fernando Hamasaki, a Senior Backend engineer who moved here 1 year ago from Brazil, tells us a bit about how his experience has been so far:
“This is my first experience working and living abroad. Besides being a big improvement in my career, it’s also a great change in my life, since I moved to Amsterdam with my wife and 6-year-old son. FindHotel gave me all the necessary support during my relocation - and didn’t help just me, but my entire family, adapt quickly to our new environment. The work itself is nice, challenging and with great growth opportunities. After one year I’m really happy: my colleagues are focused, competent, and life in Amsterdam is full of leisure, fun and cultural options.”
