If you’ve been on the fence about moving to Europe, you should consider Berlin. In the midst of Brexit talks, Berlin has truly emerged to be the next tech hub in Europe next to London, with the World Economic Forum reporting Berlin to be one of the next start-up cities that will transform the global economy in Europe. Even Elon Musk recently mentioned that he has chosen Berlin for the first Tesla European factory, and according to some sources, citing Pitchbook, a startup is founded every 20 minutes in the German capital. So there is no shortage of demands for specialised skills. The Rec Hub specialises in tech recruitment in Berlin and for good reasons.
