I am working in VMware India as a Backend Java developer. [previously Microsoft and Amazon] with 5 years of total experience . I am looking for opportunities abroad, preferably in Europe/UK/Canada. [US too, but do not have H1B :)]

I am spending lots of time applying for jobs through LinkedIn and ended up getting very few calls.

Please suggest some companies that recruits foreign workers. Any inputs will be really appreciated.

    Your current company doing your h1 or l1 visa is best option for USA. Usa Companies directly recruiting is difficult given in h1 lottery scenario.

      Currently my role is MTS-3 [Member of Technical Staff-3] in VMware. But as far as I know, only Staff Engineers [2 roles above me] are eligible to move to US. I needed 2 promotions to reach there, which might take another 4-6 years [too long to wait].

      Yes, definitely a great option. However, it takes atleast a year to do so. Just looking for some companies that hires directly from outside.

    Germany hires directly.Your best bet is Germany and Netherlands .
    Canada -small labor market
    US-immigration too tough
    Other European countries-not worth it

    Is compensation in india that bad? Europe compensation is not even close to US, and expenses are very high.
