You forgot to mention that the standard of english and other european languages is also very good in Poland - at least in Krakow where I'm just back from. There's also time zone considerations - at least some crossover with the US and pretty much all day with the rest of Europe (GMT+1).

Not sure if there is a more recent thread on this but any updates on current Dublin IT Jobs market. My other-half is trying to get back in after about 5 years out. Was a Senior Dev beforehand (15 years - Java mainly) - 70Kpa ish. Has re-skilled in the meantime (android/ios). Any tips on where to look and what's happening out there?

The job market is very good for developers. I'm getting a lot of contact from talent acquisition people on linkedin. There's always speculative contact from recruitment consultants - but there's a lot more now from people placed within companies as recruiters to expand teams.

There's certainly plenty of work in the dot com 2.0 types. It wouldn't be for me, personally, but there's lots of work there.

Citi have a large mobile/tablet dev shop which is worth a look.

The market will sustain 70k for senior dev at your OH's level. Any more can be difficult unless interviewing directly for a tech lead / architect role. What's been going on for the last 5 years? Education? Or do you mean moving back to Dublin after 5 years?

I know Citi didn't renew some contractor positions in the last few weeks so perhaps they have vacancies but getting work for a decent length of time out of them might be a problem
My company in Dublin have positions actively advertised but when I enquired from HR about them on Friday for a relation they said that they were on hold.

Things have been “on the up”for some time now.
Problem though: there isn’t as such enough people already. I have been looking to hire a couple of SW developers over the last few months, and 75% of CVs require some sort of work permit or visa sponsoring.
So only about a quarter EU candidates, of which there’s very few locals.
Salary expectations (especially from people with 7+ years work experience) are “mad”, well, until you take into account the rental situation in Dublin. It is effing bananas.

Edit: interestingly, quite an uptick of applicants from UK in the last few months, who are looking to move due to Brexit.

Yeah seeing the same. Majority of applications are just "giving it a lash". People with the right experience are in demand and can pick & choose.
So we're bringing in lots from abroad, who need to rent and can afford the crazy prices, pushing others away.

The housing problem is probably one of the factors putting off more tech companies setting up here.
Although on the jobs side I am seeing more tech jobs appear in Galway, Sligo, Belfast, Cork which is a great thing.
Remote working needs to be supported, understood and managed so that it can be the norm and could help ease the pressures of commuting and distance from the city.

I like the ferry terminal conversion, this place has great potential for office space.

Irish seems to be very against remote work.

Which is sad, because a lot of the office spaces are pretty sh!te in terms of desks, air con, acoustics, person / sqm, etc.
