Next month, on April 8th, an online fair Your Next Move: Spotlight on the Baltics will take place with the main goal to increase awareness about the region’s fast-growing tech ecosystem and engage emerging smart talent from CIS countries and beyond. Organized by the annual leading Baltic startup and technology event TechChill, it will focus on positioning the Baltics as a great place to build a professional carrier or do business within a number of established companies. The event will be held online to join free-of-charge and learn everything about professional career possibilities in Latvia.
In the past years the Baltics have become one of the fastest-growing regions with a robust technology ecosystem representing a large number of innovative companies. From up-and-coming early-stage start-ups to successful growth stage information and communication technology companies – all of them are investing in smart talent. The region’s digital-focused infrastructure, high quality of life, affordable business costs, and flexible regulations serve as solid grounds for ambitious start-ups and professional expansion. Besides, Latvia’s business environment provides one of the highest GDP growth rates in the European Union, as well as low costs of operation, easy access to the EU market, favorable immigration policies and fast-track start-up visas for industry talent and founders. Just recently Latvia has been ranked as the most startup-friendly country in Europe.
Spotlight on the Baltics online fair serves as a platform where Latvian startup companies showcase foreign talent development opportunities and where both established and emerging specialists find their future employers and partners within the ever-growing technology field. Along with the digital transformation that has been changing the labor market each year, and especially since the global pandemic, Latvian IT and tech companies are now hiring remotely. A physical relocation is not required anymore to join the high-growth teams.
During the digital event two of the leading Latvian technology industry players, FinTech frontrunner TWINO and print-on-demand dropshipping platform Printify, will be sharing their experience of building a multinational team of ambitious industry professionals. Everyone is welcome to join the Spotlight in the Baltics online fair to discover over 16 000 open start-up job opportunities, learn about the immigration procedures, state support initiatives, tax infrastructure, the process of registering a company in Latvia and much more. It will also give an opportunity for participants to meet startup recruiters, get individual consultations on relocation, learn from case studies and find out about the vacancies open for non-EU residents, including remote options, in just a few hours without having to leave the house.
“The Baltics have become the most vibrant emerging FinTech hub in Europe with rapid growth. We are attracting increasing numbers of multinational companies, as the region is able to provide great conditions for both businesses and talent. We can see that many regional FinTech industry frontrunners, including TWINO, attracted by the excellent infrastructure, relatively low operational costs and highly skilled workforce, have chosen Latvia to be the headquarters for their operations. As an important part of Latvia’s ecosystem, TWINO can assure incoming companies and talents that our industry offers an excellent working environment, including widespread remote work options, stability and security together with an ecosystem where people can connect easily,” CEO of TWINO Group, Anastasija Oleinika comments.
“Printify is a transparent e-commerce platform with tens of thousands of customers globally, and we are planning to continue our rapid growth in 2021, building a world-class team with the most talented and ambitious people. You might have heard stories about thriving, challenging, scaling and learning engineering cultures in big tech companies. Printify has one we call engineering paradise. I invite you to come see it for yourself. With our work-from-anywhere approach team members can decide whether they wish to relocate to Riga, in which case Printify covers all relocation costs; or work remotely from home. There are currently more than 100 open positions in Product, Engineering, Marketing, Design and more, as we expect to grow our team considerably this year,” Edgars Peics, the CTO of Printify adds.
