much. global work program
Join much. as a remote team member
If you’re looking for a new challenge within a motivated, diverse team of people who identify problems and focus on solutions … well, then you might want to have a closer look at this program.
much. global work is aimed at creative problemsolvers from all over the world, with an open mind and lots of drive. No matter where you are located, we invite you to become part of much. and support us as dedicated full time developer. The program is implemented in two overarching phases: You start as a remote developer from your home country and, if the collaboration is successful, after six months we’ll invite you to relocate to Germany with our support.
Do not worry about:
First, let us stress that none of our open positions in this program require German. So you can take your time learning the language. Costs for any paidf language courses will be covered by the company. In addition, you will receive a self-learning budget for various training costs, which you can dispose of freely. . In the meantime you get along well with English in your day-to-day life. Most Germans speak English pretty well and are happy to do so, whenever a opportunity presents itself. Also don’t worry of feeling left out of conversations during lunch: much. has established English as the official office language for quite some time.
Moving to another country can be a challenge especially when it comes to finding an apartment. Since most of us are not original residents of munich ourselves, we know the common obstacles and pitfalls in the local housing market and are happy to offer our advise and help with any questions you might have. Note: bureaucracy
Dealing with bureaucracy
In order to come to Germany and to stay here, you will have to jump through a few hoops made of paper. Since we know, German red tape can be especially confusing, we will provide you with a comprehensive guide of all the administrative offices you will have to go to and which appointments you wil have to make, to settle down without any problems.
Advance your career in one of Germany’s most famous cities
As home of the world-famous Oktoberfest and the country’s third largest city, Munich is a true international hub. Attracted by the area’s good location and prosperity, many global companies such as BMW, Siemens and PWC have their headquarters in Munich, which draws increasing numbers of skilled academics from abroad. Nature has a high priority here: water, forests and public parks take up a total of 19.8 percent of the city’s area. A top spot for many is the “English Garden,” a large public park in the city center that is even larger than Central Park in New York. Also there is the unbeatable central location within Europe: You can drive to Italy in two hours, go skiing in the Alps on the weekend, or be anywhere else in Europe in no time by plane. You can explore not only your new home, but all of Europe!

At the end, a second interview takes place, this time joined by our managing partners Mike & Simon.

Step 7: Equipment

Step 8: First day
Welcome to your first proper day at much.! After the stand-up HR will guide you through the onboarding. For your first two weeks you will receive a onboarding plan with activities and task scheduled everyday. You will also be assigned a “Buddy”, a designated collegue who you can turn to with problems and questions and who will help you to get used to our way of doing things.
Step 9: remote work for at least six months
Over the course of the next weeks and months you will learn about Odoo and get involved in our various projects. There will be regular feedback and expectations meeting scheduled along the way, during which we are able to reflect together on your development and progress and to discuss our wishes for the future. if, after six months, this remote period was a succes for both of us, it is time to talk about the next phase.
Step 10: Moving to Germany
After six months if we have both come to the agreement that you and much. are indeed a perfect match, it is time to pack your bags: because we would like you to join us in person now!
