BCN TECH JOBS
Want to know who’s hiring in Barcelona’s vibrant tech scene?
Well, look no further … dust of your digital CV and take a look through the following online and social media job search sites and engines.
Spot anything we’ve missed? Let us know … we’ll be happy to include any other links to local employment sources in Barcelona’s thriving tech sector.
JobFluent (http://www.jobfluent.com), a new Barcelona-based startup that has just launched this week and promises to become “the ultimate source for startup jobs in Europe.” JobFluent has some good tips on its blog and you can also follow their BCN job Tweets via @jobfluent.
B-Value.com (http://www.b-value.com), a spinoff of Heurística that’s been around since 2008 and bills itself as “a career resources site based in Barcelona, for people and companies oriented to innovation, research and technology development.” You can likewise follow B-Value on Twitter via @b_value_jobs.
The Job Tweets, a Twitter pure-play job search engine — just run a Twitter search for “TheJobTweets_ES AND Barcelona” and you can segregate out their Barcelona postings in a list that looks something like the one at this short-link: http://bit.ly/TTKrFi). The Job Tweets can be found on Twitter at @TheJobTweets_ES
Mobile World Capital LinkedIn page (linkd.in/XVnKWH), where you can find the latest job postings with the recently minted Mobile World Capital Foundation. You can also follow their Tweets of mobile news and the occasional MWC job posting on Twitter @MWC_Barcelona.
LinkedIn advanced job search – NOT to be underestimated; try running an advanced search in the Jobs section of LinkedIn for technology jobs within 50 kms of Barcelona you will come up with a current list like the one you’ll find at this short URL: linkd.in/TTlWYZ.
Barcelona Activa’s Jobs Search Engine, a little more complicated than the other options listed above, but certainly comprehensive in terms of rooting out those technology-related jobs across multiple industries in Barcelona and Catalunya.
Now, in case you’re new to looking for work in Spain, perhaps looking to pitch up on Catalunya’s shores with code rumbling around in your head and a digital CV in hand (figuratively speaking), you should probably take a look at AngloInfo’s “Working in Spain: Finding a Job”. Scroll around and check especially on the left nav bar the sections on Visas & Work Permits, Employment and Starting a Business, to really get your head around the bureaucracy you can expect to encounter and how to work your way through it to landing a job in Barcelona!
So, good luck and good job hunting in Barcelona!
