Working in Estonia Anshul
So fresh & clean
As a clear winner of the category, Estonians highly value both the environmental cleanliness and the possibilities of spending time in the nature. For one day each year, much of the country unites to clean up our beaches and forests while bragging about it via 4G (soon to be 5G) internet on social media.
Crime rates are low, people around you are relaxed and usually modest. Cyber safety is an especially hot topic and Estonians often like to speak about it on international arena. By the way, NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence is located in Tallinn.
Compact & Pleasant size
Estonia is not one of the biggest countries in the world with 1.3 million population. This means you are never more than a 30-minute drive away from a forest or a lake. There are no real traffic jams compared to the big metropolitans in the world. Less time spent on traveling means more quality time in your day.
Working in Estonia.
Fast-track your career
The main motivator and attraction of Estonia has to be its compact organisational hierarchy, which enables you to climb up the career ladder more rapidly. Young employees are given opportunities to lead, and staff members’ contributions are noticed and rewarded.
Our future is bright
Estonians are the start-up nation of Europe. Our government is doing everything to make running businesses as easy and streamlined as possible. You can access all major government agencies via the world famous X-Road environment using your ID-card that makes integrated e-services available for everyone everywhere.
Coming to Estonia.
The Digital Society
Estonia is very proud to call itself a digital society, which makes doing business and accessing government services simpler, faster, and more transparent. The new ID card you get as an Estonian resident is more advanced than any issued in the world. It’s at the heart of the digital infrastructure that has made Estonia famous.
Setting up Your Bank Account
Banking in Estonia is easy, secure and relatively low cost. There are currently three banks compatible with your ID card for online banking, which are Swedbank, SEB and the Estonian bank LHV.
Transparent Tax system
Estonia stands out as having a tax system that is innovative, competitive and incredibly straightforward. You’ll just need to visit the Estonian Tax and Customs Board in order to get yourself set up for tax residency.
Living in Estonia.
The living is easy
No other tech hub beats Tallinn when it comes to optimising your monthly expenses. Rent in Tallinn is 3 times cheaper than in Amsterdam and 8 times more affordable than in San Francisco. Our free public transport and healthcare leave you more disposable income to spend on fun things.
The high level of English is naturally a very positive thing. Non-Estonian speakers do not generally feel helpless in Estonia. Whether at the doctor’s, on the street, at the shops or official institutions, it is almost always possible to get by in English. There are a lot of ICT companies where the common working language is English.
Culturally Estonia delivers on all fronts – we have extremely vibrant nightlife with major artists flown in on most weekends, frequent music and film festivals all around the country, happenings of all sorts to freshen every point of view known to man. And if that’s not enough, major Nordic hubs like Stockholm and Helsinki are just a short ferry ride away!
