Data & Analytics in Munich

Three Reasons Why Munich Is The Place To Be For Data Analysts

As one of the world’s largest economies, Germany continues to attract tech talent from all over the world, and has even overtaken the UK in terms of intra-Europe tech immigration in recent years. Whilst Berlin may be the first place that comes to mind when thinking of places to live as a Data Analyst in Germany, with its numerous start-ups and international culture, there are several reasons why you should also consider the southern gem of Munich. Here are three of the best: A First-Class Quality Of Life While the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Munich is often the world famous Oktoberfest and the beer induced crowds packed into small beer tents paying the equivalent of a year´s salary for a pint, this is not the only thing Munich has to offer. During the other 349 days of the year when Munich is not packed with Lederhosen-wearing crowds from all over the world, it is a tranquil, green place to live.  Munich is home to a number of large parks, including the beautiful Englischer Garten, Museums and a number of non-beer related cultural events throughout the year. It’s also the third largest city in Germany and, as such, has all the benefits that big city life has to offer. However, nature is never far away, with a beautiful mountain landscape just on the horizon, including the tallest mountain in Germany, the Zugspitze, which sits only 90 km away. On top of this, the transportation system in Munich is one of the best in the country; clean, efficient and so simple to use, it actually makes commuting bearable.  Expansive Opportunities  Most major European cities have seen a boom in the tech market in recent years and Munich is no exception. Not only home to some of the biggest global and German players such as Amazon, MunichRE, Man, Allianz and Linde, the city is also seeing an increasing amount of investment in tech start-ups.  This has led to tech talent, particularly Data & Analytics talent, being highly sought after by a number of the country’s biggest and best employers. And healthy competition means even healthier salaries. Even though Munich doesn’t have the lowest cost of living around, the average pay for Data Analysts is higher than in most other German cities, meaning you’ll get to make the most of your time away from the office.  A Thriving International Culture With 25-38% of Munich´s residents originating from other nations, more and more companies, big and small, are open to welcoming English speakers into their teams. While the culture in Munich still makes it easy to immerse oneself into the German language and culture, the city is also very welcoming to its international inhabitants.  Of course not everyone can speak English, but it is surprising how many people do. This makes getting around as a non-German speaker that much easier, especially considering that the Bavarian version of German can sometimes feel like a completely different language to what is spoken by the rest of the country.  Like every country, different cities attract different personalities and find the right place for you is crucial before making a move. But, with its high quality of life, great job prospects and international culture, Munich certainly has a lot to offer for any Data Analyst looking to move to or within Germany.  If you’re considering making a move to Munich, take a look at our latest opportunities, or get in touch and we can discuss what could work best for you. 


Make no mistake: making minor adjustments to an ad or campaign that’s meant to appeal to the masses just won’t cut it. Customers crave creativity. They want to be understood. Which is why people respond best to brands that do their homework, doing their research into what appeals to different groups. How should businesses appeal to their chosen segments, then, considering how diverse people are? Data, of course. Why Data? For one thing, it drives results and creates improved outcomes. Data also helps to prove the value of marketing, providing a bargaining chip for future budget discussions. And, most rewarding of all, brands get valuable insights into their target market. Which, in turn, leads to more well-targeted, profitable campaigns.  And if you think Data doesn’t belong in the world of creative campaigns, think again. As OpenJaw Technologies Chief Marketing Officer Colin Lewis argues: “Creativity is not just compatible with being Data-driven – Data can drive better creative.” Psychological profiling Strategic communications consultancy, Verbalisation, researches and analyses language to form valuable insights. Using its Rapid Audience Insights Diagnostic system, the company’s team of psychologists and researchers work out how an audience thinks. They also learn the actual words an audience uses, which they then use as the basis of a marketing strategy.  Based on their unique research and insights, Verbalisation has created several successful campaigns for high-profile brands. These include the #NotAnotherBrother campaign for counter-terrorism organisation Quilliam, which looked at the motivations of jihadists.  The campaign is now used by the UN and schools across the UK, as well as the US Department of Defense. It is the most viewed counter-extremism campaign of all time, with more than half a billion global media impressions.  Location, location, location Out-of-home (OOH) advertising. Yes, it goes way back, but it’s actually the only traditional advertising channel posting rapid growth. In fact, thanks to mobile-location Data, brands can target audiences quicker and with a greater chance of success than ever before.  Great news for JCDecaux (JCD), a leading OOH company with ads reaching 410 million people in over 4,000 cities. JCD now works with location Data to define and segment audiences. Doing so helps it decide where to place media, improve campaigns and measure resulting store footfall and purchases.  Knowledge, so they say, is power. Particularly when that involves knowing the whereabouts of the most coveted customers. Newly teamed up with identity resolution company, Neustar, JCD’s insights look stronger than ever. JCD can now understand which of its locations rank higher for any brand’s most desired audiences. All thanks to location Data and real-time behaviour analysis.  Personalised employee training Data doesn’t just boost the results of B2C brands; it can also be a vital shot in the arm for internal security training campaigns. Training provider, CybeReady, for instance, uses a Data science-driven approach to deliver cyber awareness training with a difference: its anti-phishing platform helps security teams quickly roll out and tailor campaigns to individual employees. In big companies, getting employees up to speed is especially challenging. With many locations, languages and time zones to contend with, Information Security teams have their work cut out.  CybeReady eliminates these challenges by delivering 12 personalised, 60-second simulations to each employee. In their first language, every year. What’s more, the training provider uses machine learning to analyse performance on a daily basis. This enables it to provide the most appropriate simulations to each individual. The result? IT teams save 160 hours each month and employee resilience increases five-fold. There’s no limit to what Data can do. If you’re a fan, we may have a role for you. Take a look at our latest opportunities or get in touch with our expert consultants.
