Portugal as your next tech destination

Due to its unique cultural and work characteristics, Portugal has shown up in the past years as a top destination for both tech talent and the organizations that need them. Great tech talent, high english proficiency, timezone compatibility, open working culture, affordable costs and excellent safety and stability conditions contribute to this effect.

A large number of relevant international companies have set up tech teams and development centres in Portugal recently, a lot of them helped by Landing.Jobs, AICEP and other organizations with all the legal, talent acquisition and management topics.
