Covid as an opportunity – Corona als Chance

Even if Covid makes life difficult for us, restricts our movement and scares us – it is also an opportunity. You might not be able to travel or go on a night out, you might even be working short-time, in Kurzarbeit, or reduced hours, but you do have more time. More time to learn, to work on yourself, to improve, to change something, to challenge yourself. Take this chance, upskill with us, and aim for a career change.

Skills gap – Qualifikationslücke

According to Bitkom, there are over 100,000 vacant IT positions in Germany, of which a large part are aimed at junior developers. And even if you don’t want to change career, it makes sense to upskill, as Covid-19 pushes companies to accelerate digitalisation by 84%.

Better salary – Besseres Gehalt 

Did you know that the starting salary of a software developer with less than three years of professional experience averages between € 38,900 and € 66,508, according to kununu? With the right ambitions, you can quickly advance in software development and increase your financial prospects.

Working from Home – Home Office 

The Home Office will become more important, even beyond the end of Covid measures and will inevitably become the new normal for many companies. The World Economic Forum reports that 83% of the companies will be pushed to scale remote work in the near future. Working remotely in Germany, and elsewhere, is prevalent especially among software developers. Because it primarily involves working online, it’s ripe for people to work globally.
