BE IN TEL AVIV
 
TECH TALENT RELOCATION PROGRAM TO ISRAEL

BETA

HERE'S THE DEAL.

IF YOU'RE INTO STARTUPS, YOU SHOULD COME TO TEL AVIV.

Amazing quality of life, concentration of talent, and most importantly, passion are just a few aspects that set Tel Aviv apart from other global startup hubs. This is the place where people work to change the world and disrupt conventional industry norms every day. 

WHO WE ARE

We are BETA - an alliance of Israeli tech companies who are tackling hard tech challenges for very meaningful missions (e.g. saving lives on the road, bringing AI to blood tests, making public transportation efficient, etc.). To achieve these missions, we want to attract the best talent in Israel and in the world. That’s why we have started BETA, a one year (or more) relocation program for senior tech talent to “beta test” Israel and see if there’s a fit. 

Companies in BETA pledge to provide you with a relocation package including:

  • Up to $20K relocation bonus

  • Yearly roundtrip flight home

  • Streamlined work visa process

  • Apartment hunting assistance

  • Housing for your first six weeks in Tel Aviv

  • School & community matching assistance

  • Paid cell phone

  • Hebrew tutor (if you’re interested. All of our companies are English speaking)

  • Help from an accountant who understands International/Israel tax law

Is this program for you?

We're looking for experienced tech professionals, like engineers, researchers and designers. Check out the open positions in each company to learn more.

WHY
TEL AVIV?

Beach & Weather

With over 300 days of sun a year and miles of sandy beaches, you’re more likely than not to spot natives heading to work in shorts and a tank top. You’ll find yourself spending leisurely summer days with friends on the beach.

Family Friendly

Tel Aviv is super children-friendly. The city offers a good school system with an international vibe. You’ll see many young families and kids strolling in the city than most big western cities. Everyone loves kids here and it’s a wonderful place to raise a family.

Culture & Food

Tel Aviv is an incredibly diverse city that mixes Middle East with Europe. Israelis have roots in Morocco, Iraq, Turkey, Poland, Russia, France, Syria, Brooklyn, etc. — and the food reflects that. From delicious street food like shawarma, falafel, and hummus, to fine dining and fusions, Tel Aviv’s food culture is off the hook. 

Cost of Living

Compared to SF and NYC, Tel Aviv is pretty affordable. We’ll make sure of it with the benefits included in our relocation package.

Nightlife & Parties
Tel Aviv is famous for its party scene. Purim is like Jewish Halloween. TEL AVIV PRIDE attracts hundreds of thousands of people every June and Tel Aviv is known for being LGBTQ friendly. Midburn, Israel’s version of Burning Man, is a 2 hour drive into the desert. Hundreds of bars and clubs dot the streets of Tel Aviv, which some call “the city that never sleeps.” Whatever floats your boat, you’ll find it in Tel Aviv.

Israel & beyond at your fingertips
From the forested Israeli north, to the arid deserts of the south, Israel has a lot of gorgeous terrain to offer. Tel Avivis will often spend their weekends hiking, traveling to cities like Jerusalem and Haifa, floating in the Dead Sea, or even crossing the border to Jordan. Israel stands at the crossroads of Africa, Europe, and Asia, so the world is really a quick flight away.

FAQ

Do I need to be jewish to apply?

No, everyone is welcome. Tel Aviv and the BETA companies have a strong multinational culture.

 

Does it make any difference if I have an Israeli passport, or if I’ve already worked in Israel?
The program is open to anyone that hasn't lived in Israel in the past 3 years.

What if I want to stay more than a year?

That's great! If you decide to stay longer, you should read up about Aliyah (if you're Jewish) or receiving a longterm work visa.

Do I have to speak Hebrew?

Although all of our companies are English speaking, we encourage you to study Hebrew to better understand Israel’s culture. But don’t worry, pretty much everyone in Israel speaks English very well.

 

Can I apply to more than one company?

Yes, though we recommend that you disclose this during your interview process.

MEET SOME EXPATS IN THE BETA COMPANIES

ELAN

Director of Business Development at Nexar.
Moved to Israel from NY, 8 years ago.

Why did you decide to move to Israel?

A combination of Zionism and starting my married life
with my amazing wife in a new country.

RACHEL

Product Designer at Nexar.
Moved to Tel Aviv a year ago from SF.

Why did you decide to move to Israel?
I moved to Israel from San Francisco because I found that in Silicon Valley every company and product looks the same and works the same. I was bored and burnt out, looking to travel without sacrificing my career. Israel’s tech scene, art scene and overall cultures was an easy choice.
