Startups & founder scene

A new business is started in Berlin every 20 hours. In Berlin's digital sector alone, one in eight new jobs is a job in a start-up, and this trend is on the increase. Nowhere in Germany are so many founders venturing to start their own business. Immobilienscout24, Soundcloud, Wooga, DaWanda, brands4friends, Zalando, Sofatutor and rebuy are just some Berlin start-ups that have established themselves in the market and are now among the capital's major employers.

Investors believe in Berlin, as evidenced by the high level of funding programs, financiers, incubators, accelerators and institutions. Anyone setting up business here can benefit from individual advice, support and financial sponsorship. Around 11,400 people work in the gaming industry in approximately 1,500 firms, and the "web / mobile" sector currently has 5,700 Berlin-based digital firms – most of them start-ups.

Anyone looking for a job in Berlin should keep an eye out for start-ups. The areas of IT / software development, marketing and communications, sales and finance, product management and design and UX, in particular, are recruiting – attractive jobs for programmers, technicians, graphic designers, team leaders, account managers and marketing managers. This is the same as in traditional firms, but start-ups also need HR managers, administrators and client advisors.

OUR TIP: Already know about the reverse job platform for IT jobs 4scotty? 4scotty entirely reverses the process of applying for a job. Companies in Berlin apply to you, and not the other way round. Try it for yourself now!

What's special about a job in a start-up is that you will probably perform more tasks than those stated in your job description. Because in a newly-created business, everyone pitches in wherever they are needed to ensure that everything ultimately works as it should. The advantages are lean hierarchies, great learning potential, opportunities for rapid promotion and the encouragement of personal development. Salaries always depend on your professional experience and the respective company. On average, a UX designer in a start-up earns around EUR 45,000 a year before tax, and a 3D artist in excess of EUR 25,000. So get job-hunting! It's worth it.

OUR TIP: Every year, Startup Night takes place in Berlin – an evening of speed dating, live pitches, talks and discussions. 160 start-ups from the fields of entertainment, automotive/travel & transport, FinTech, food & lifestyle, wearables, fashion, data analytics and health and security creatively present their products.
