Nine reasons why I moved to Switzerland to work in tech

1. High living standard

Taxes or estimates your salary after taxes.

No capital gain tax

Health insurance

2. Economy and democracy

Direct democracy

3. Reasonable living costs


Due to high labor costs, sandwiches made in Switzerland can be expensive, but often are 50% off after 5 p.m.


4. Multiculturalism

5. Low bureaucracy

6. Simple entrepreneurship

7. Easy immigration (for EU citizens)

8. Cheap, high-speed (mobile) internet.

9. No second chance to come here
