Viewing new computer in SpainSpain is one of the best countries in Europe to work in an IT job primarily because IT workers often work from home and so you can be enjoying all the benefits of the wonderful weather and climate in Spain and yet still be able to do your job remotely.

Even if you have to work in an office for a large multinational corporation, at least you will probably be based in one of the major cities of Spain such as Madrid, Barcelona or Valencia – what fantastic places to work!

Where to Get Spanish I.T. Jobs?

Apart from the major Spanish cities which we have just mentioned the most likely places to find jobs would be ones where the majority of the expatriate populations are based as we shall presume you are an English speaker not fluent in Spanish.

Therefore many businesses and companies who are either run by expats or provide services to expats will often require IT workers such as computer programmers or web designers to help with their business.

Popular expatriate areas in Spain include the Costa del Sol with major towns being Marbella, Puerto Banus, Malaga and Mijas.

Popular Spanish islands include Mallorca, Ibiza and Tenerife.

The Costa Blanca coast which includes Alicante and Torrevieja would be an excellent choice for the lifestyle.

You will also find many IT vacancies in Gibraltar where many workers live just across the border in Spain and commute across the border each day and back again at night.

I.T. Work in Spain – Computer Jobs

For the English-speaking IT developer or contractor there are many possibilities to find work with major International corporations and Spanish companies.

You are in a great position compared with many other people looking to work in Spain. The majority of jobs that these English speaking people are expecting to find are fairly menial positions such as working in a bar, restaurant or cleaning apartments and villas.

As an IT worker in Spain your skills will be appreciated and well paid due to your specialisation. The other added advantage is that you will be employed on an official workers contract which comes with many benefits such as free entitlement to medical care using the Spanish state health care system.

If you work in Spain long enough will build up entitlement to a pension and if you have children they will be entitled to free schooling in Spain.

The cost of living in Spain is generally a lot lower than other European countries such as the United Kingdom and Germany so you are likely to be able to have an extremely good lifestyle.



You will also be able to enjoy the wonderful climate which enables you to enjoy the outdoors so much more than most other European countries. The chances are you will not be too far away from some lovely beaches or even ski resorts.

If you are a national of a European Union country you will not need a visa and so working in Spain is extremely simple. All you need is a tax identification number which is known as the NIE which your employer will sort out for you.
