Lisbon - the home of Uniplaces

Become an Alfacinha!

 "Lisbon is full of talented people, the tech scene was and still is very strong here, so for an online business this was a great advantage. There is no better way to attract international people than inviting them to visit the office and the city. An office full of enthusiastic people and a city as charming as Lisbon are hard to resist" (Miguel Santo Amaro, Co-Founder)

Lisbon’s talent pool keeps on growing. Do you want to be a part of this?

Ok, let's add up some more reasons:

  • Number of sunny days in year! To be more accurate, 1500 hours per year, which is about three times more sun duration than in the northern half of Europe during Winter!
  • Amazing beaches 20 mins away. Don't believe us? Do some research and look what we have to offer!
  • Worldwide English speakers. As Lisbon is becoming global, you can meet people from all over the world! Just Uniplaces has around 16 nationalities!
  • Next European Tech City. From Web summit to dozens of tech hubs popping in Lisbon, the attention (and pressure!) is to Portugal to become the big next tech city!
  • Quick to fly everywhere! One side the Atlantic Ocean, the other side Europe, your choice!
  • Cool and cheap! Not only the weather is nice, but the food is nice and the people are nice. And guess what? Amazing cost of living!
