Amazon does this.


They do…? When I talked toAmazon last they lost their shit when I said I wanted to be based out of lansing and not Detroit. Was a role that was with aws….

I don’t have much of an answer but I can share some knowledge here. In Europe, you can stay for 90 days without needing a visa but certain countries like France have very strict labor laws. I would do research on specific work-friendly countries and/or extended stays without needing a visa. It’s a lot of paperwork. It would be a tremendous experience though


Yes! You just have to be diligent enough to look for a tech company that does this. Good luck!


I have similar goals, let’s see how it unfolds.

I’m also looking for this. Austria, Sweden, Germany, Lichtenstein are my main goals and my secondary interests are in: Slovakia, Romania, and Hungary

Very confused about inflation data in the past few months. Aside from used cars and energy, all other categories data looks like there’s only a mild 2% inflation.
