We are happy to announce that GermanTech Jobs is now supporting our Trade ComplianceTech Forum 2021.

In their own words

GermanTech Jobs is the first German IT job board built with Software Engineers in mind.

We started in Switzerland as SwissDevJobs.ch with the goal to bring more transparency, openness and diversity to the Swiss IT market.

After achieving this goal, we now strive to do the same on the German IT market. We want to make the job search process for Software Engineers more enjoyable by gathering all job postings in Germany and presenting them in an informative way.

 Our portal is not only for Developers but for everyone working in the IT industry: Engineers, SAP and System Admins, Product Managers, QAs and UX/UI Designers!
