Well I’m 24, I have a lot of experience generally on computers and web
development (~10 years). So what would you aim for if you were me? It’s going to
be a full-time work, I’m going to be a part of the team. Someone recommended ~50k
(I’m a junior in Rails, but learning fast and built some quite good things till
50k is fine to start.
Also, what would you estimate the life there costs? I mean, the bills (house,
electricity, water, food, internet/phone)?
Rent: 500.- for 1-2 Rooms
Apartment with furniture 600.-/ 800.-
Food : 250.-
Transport: 60.- (public)
when you earn 50k, no kids …income taxes will be around 30%…but also
you have to pay sick- and pension insurance, etc. . So from 50k around
30k will stay in your pocket… which is not bad for 24 year young guy.
Enjoy Berlin…culture is great.
o.k. weather is not like Barcelona…no siesta (8:00 - 17:30 straight
work), no outdoor sitting in the sun , running around in t-shirt
etc…at least not from now to next May. Can be be fucking cold in Jan -
Communication can be mostly in english…no need to learn German…in the
Berlin people are a little direct at times but helpful, but there are so
Go for it… Spain is not in a good shape right now…
Also, does anybody knows what’s the average IT salary in Berlin for Rails
