Increased demand from clients and a growing number of projects have led Sii Poland to start collaborating with specialists outside the country. The company doesn’t take into consideration only candidates from European Union but also from countries such as Azerbaijan or Turkey. Read the article and find out how to join the Sii team within the International Freelancer program.
Portugal, Hungary, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Italy, Bulgaria, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Croatia, Moldova, and Azerbaijan – these are the countries that Sii recruiters are currently focusing on when looking for candidates for the International Freelancer project. What were the reasons behind choosing exactly these countries?
— We have examined the selected countries in detail, considering several aspects, namely the potential of IT professionals, average salaries, responsiveness to our job offers, but also legal issues like migration movements between countries and how easy it is to become self-employed — explains Artur Palac, International Freelancer Regional Director.
