Negotiating offers across countries

Nov 11, 2019 9 Comments

I'm planning to apply for Spotify in Stockholm, my top Data Science choice in Europe. Is it possible to use offers from London or other European cities for negotiation or should I apply for a bunch of roles in Sweden (limited options)?

      I know some people in Sweden already. Considering London, as well, though.

      I really enjoyed Sweden, a few people from my old London office moved back to Sweden (it was a Swedish company)

    From my experience, it's really difficult to use other country offers to negotiate. You can always try, but they can always throw back at you "this market is different" and refuse to budge. You need multiple competing offers where the company doesn't want to lose you to another local company

    What country do you actually want to move to? They all would pay differently and are not comparable against each other

      That's what I'm saying. It's hard to compare salaries and cost of living across countries but I'm theoretically open to multiple locations.

      I want to create leverage somehow and use multiple offers to negotiate
