    Amazon gives international offers for their Canadian offices. DM me if you want me to refer.

      It is, but looking more from new experiences perspective.

      You married? As a general principle, Indian marriages seem to succeed if you don't move back to India after marriage... So, if you go to the US and get married while there, it'll be hard to come back to India.

      Not yet. Haven’t thought on those lines.

      That's the most important thing you need to think about. TC, credential etc will happen automatically over time.

    I don't think Canada and US is an different but maybe Europe might be. I know too many people are sent to EU when they can't get their visa for US after the hire. I assume it's like a safety net kinda thing? But what do I know.

      I have heard of such cases in AWS where they temporarily relocated people to Germany while trying for a US visa. How are the Microsoft teams in Europe? Any particular cities where interesting teams are based out of?

      I heard there is a research center in New England but it looks like it's more of a visitors front or like interns and stuff I don't if there are any teams ship products but they sure do look interesting. They have nice events around ML, DL. Other than that someone else should collab here i guess.

    Consider booking.com if you want to move to Amsterdam, make above market rates (but much less than the US), have excellent WLB, and wait only 5 years to get a passport.

      You already have answers. What more do you want?

      Do they sponsor visas/ take in overseas applications at their Europe/US locations?

      Also are there any other companies that do that?

    But don't expect to save more compared to India. Vancouver living expenses are too much.

      Not looking at it from a savings aspect, more like trying out a different experience
