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 now).
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 - March
Communication can be mostly in english…no need to learn German…in the beginning.
Berlin people are a little direct at times but helpful, but there are so many foreigners…
Go for it… Spain is not in a good shape right now…
Also, I heard the taxes there are quite high, something like 45%?
I’m living in Spain, and I’m offered a job in a Berlin IT company as a Rails developer. I’m considered a junior developer (almost 1 year experience) but I think I’m pretty good for this time.
I would like to ask what would be considered a good salary for such a position. I mean, what amount would be good and could make a decent life out of (apartment bill, internet, food etc.). I don’t know if this matters, but I will relocate there.
Also, does anybody knows what’s the average IT salary in Berlin for Rails developers?
