Relocation support & allowance
Our team will support you in all matters. We will assist you and your family with questions concerning healthcare, public transport, banking, childcare, schools, and more. Plus, we support your relocation by granting you an allowance to help you settle in comfortably.
For the first month of your stay in Austria, Estonia, Poland, and Spain, we’ll accommodate you in a paid apartment or company flat. This provides you with stability and comfort in your new city, until we find the right home for you, together.
Your buddy may help you during your first months at work with tips for your relocation as well as social integration. They’ll also lead you through the Dynatrace galaxy and local customs.
Visas, work permits, and government offices
We’ll help you organize all the essential documentation before joining Dynatrace, and will accompany you to the local authorities if necessary.
Most people in Europe can speak English, either fluently or conversationally. But speaking the local language will make your day-to-day life easier. We offer language courses suitable for beginners, but also advanced speakers too.
* Please note that the extent of the relocation support varies by country. We are currently working on streamlining the relocation program globally, so stay tuned.
Here’s what Dynatracers experienced with relocation all over the world:
Software Engineer who relocated to Klagenfurt (Austria) from Venezuela
"Relocation is always stressful, especially during such a difficult year because of the pandemic (2021). Dynatrace supported me along the way and always said they'd wait as long as they had to in order to get me on board. And they waited 8 months. People at Dynatrace are very warm, open, and friendly — integration wasn't a problem at all. I also speak some German, so I really enjoy the language and culture. My routine as of today goes: Football on Tuesdays, Bowling practice on Wednesdays."
Technical Product Specialist who relocated to Vienna (Austria) from Hungary
"As I am a young professional, the financial support that Dynatrace provided was essential, because the moving process came with a lot of expenses. My relocation experience was great thanks to this package and the comprehensive assistance of my relocation agent. I respect and appreciate that Dynatrace welcomes international employees and fosters a diverse and inclusive culture. In addition, it was great to be welcomed by a buddy from the same country, who could help me with my Hungary-specific questions and shared some best practices for the transformation."
Content Designer & UX Writer who relocated to Linz (Austria) from Serbia
"We relocated from Belgrade to Linz at the pandemic’s peak in November 2020. From day one, I appreciated the great service and help with all the paperwork. Or the relocation consultant who always went the extra mile. It was extremely reassuring to have a team proactively and reliably supporting us throughout the relocation. At Dynatrace, there are people from 12 or 13 different countries just in my team and we work closely with colleagues in the US, Poland, and Spain. Dynatrace does a lot to help you settle in as an international with social events, free German classes, and a dedicated Slack international community channel."
Software Engineer who is currently on a 9-months exchange in Barcelona
"Moving to another country comes with a lot of excitement and even more questions. My nine-month exchange to Barcelona is separate from the usual relocation process, but Dynatrace still supported me during my relocation. I could always reach out to them in case of any doubts about moving or my new work environment. They adapted my contracts on the fly to all current needs. Fortunately, their help also included getting Spanish documentation (the most challenging part of moving to Spain) and an option for temporary housing when moving back to Linz."
Software Engineer who relocated from to Linz (Austria) from Belarus
"The relocation process went as smoothly as it could. I was in close touch with all questions regarding documents, legalization, points to score to meet Austrian authorities' requirements, etc. All my concerns, questions, problems were managed in the shortest possible time. In addition, as an international, I have access to lots of useful internal resources that can help in daily life—taxes, social services, some daily routines that are evident or natural for Austrians, but not for an international."
Technical Product Specialist who relocated to Linz from South Africa
“The thought of relocating in-country is not easy, but the thought of relocating from one continent to another with a family of five can be even more daunting. The support I received from Dynatrace was phenomenal. I was added to the buddy program where someone who also relocated from South Africa shared their experience. The culture at Dynatrace is truly amazing. It’s characterized by friendly and helpful colleagues. After our daughters started school and we moved into a permanent apartment, we started settling in. The integration process is still ongoing, but with Dynatrace offering language learning courses and several internal channels with information from financial, legal, family, and everything Austria it makes the integration so much easier.”
Senior Software Engineer who relocated to Tallinn (Estonia) from France
“Between the offer acceptance and the first day of work, two months went by—to wrap things up in France because my seat in the Tallinn Lab was ready much sooner. Big shout out to our operational agent as she was always available to answer my questions and make me feel welcome from the beginning. Among all the benefits, Dynatrace rented a nice flat for my first month. It gave me peace of mind and let me focus on my onboarding. Finally, settling in Estonia is straightforward: once you have your identification card, you can do everything online and English translations are offered everywhere. That is something I appreciate.”
Software Engineer who relocated to Gdańsk (Poland) from Argentina
“Deciding to change jobs and relocating to a new place is never to be taken lightly. I came alone to Gdańsk from Argentina, being a whole different world when it comes to language, and culture. Certainly, Dynatrace made it easy for me to deal with all kinds of adaptations. Since the beginning, I've been in contact with very professional and helpful people, always willing to reach out and assist in every possible way. Looking back at the journey so far and given the chance to repeat it, I would gladly do it all over again.”
