Malta your home in 2023

Why you should make Malta your home in 2024

There are plenty of reasons why you should make Malta your home in 2024. In this blog, we outline a few of the most interesting ones.

Quality of life

If you decide to live or work in Malta, get ready to embrace its unique way of life. The Maltese Islands, made up of Malta and Gozo, boast of a lot of positives.

For starters, by and large, it is possible to maintain a good work-life balance and have the time to dedicate to your passions or hobbies.

There are few countries where you can take a dip in the beautiful Mediterranean Sea pretty much from late April to early November (some people are even found swimming in December or even after!)

Dining al fresco is also possible most months out of the year. Although large parts of the island are built-up, there are still places where you can go picnicking, running or hiking during the cooler periods.

Malta offers a high standard of living that is hard to beat. The island has a mild Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and mild winters, making it an ideal location for outdoor activities year-round.

Malta is also known for its beautiful beaches, clear blue waters, and stunning landscapes, which attract tourists from around the world.

Strong economy and high safety

Malta is a member of the European Union and the Eurozone and it uses the Euro as its currency. The country has a low unemployment rate and a high GDP per capita. Crime levels are also relatively low.

As for living costs, we are not saying that Malta is a ‘cheap’ place to live in, but it is generally possible to live well within your means, making it an attractive location for those who would like to save money while still enjoying a good standard of living.

The cost of living in Malta is relatively lower than in several other countries in Europe. If you have a decent salary, you should not only be able to live, but live reasonably well.

The rental market is diverse and the price of rental properties is dependant on where you decide to live, and what kind of housing you are looking for.

Malta’s public transport has been free of charge for all residents since the 1st of October 2022.

The ‘Tallinja Card‘ is required to be able to travel for free on a bus. You will need to tap your card on the ticketing machine every time you board a bus.

Another option is to use ride-hailing services such as eCabs of course! The eCabs App is available for both iPhone and Android users.

Malta’s thriving technology industry

Over the past decade, Malta has become a hub for the technology sector, attracting startups, multinational tech companies, and investors from around the world.

The island boasts a highly educated workforce, with many locals fluent in multiple languages. As a result, Malta has a thriving tech sector that continues to grow year after year.

As a tech professional, you will find that Malta’s community is particularly welcoming to those in the industry. The island has a vibrant tech scene, with numerous events, meetups, and networking opportunities throughout the year.

If you attend these tech industry events, you can connect with other tech professionals and expand your network, both locally and internationally.

Choosing to relocate to Malta not only opens doors to professional growth but also provides the opportunity to embrace a fulfilling lifestyle in a charming and culturally rich setting.

If you are looking for a new challenge in a dynamic and innovative tech mobility company, while working in a beautiful island nation with a rich history and culture, eCabs Technologies is the place for you, says eCabs Technologies’ Head of HR Tracy Vella.

“We are looking for talented and passionate professionals who share our vision of transforming the way people move and travel. As a member of our team, you will enjoy a competitive salary and benefits package, a friendly and supportive work environment, and the opportunity to relocate to Malta, one of the most attractive destinations in Europe.

“At eCabs Technologies, we value our employees and their wellbeing. We organise regular events and activities to foster team spirit and social interaction. We also have a strong company culture, based on our core values of innovation, excellence, and customer satisfaction. You will work with team members who are experts in their fields and who are always ready to help and collaborate.”

We are very proud of our multi-diverse, talented team. If you fit our criteria, hopefully we will be seeing you soon!

Why move to Malta for work 5 great reasons

Why move to Malta for work (5 great reasons)

Here are some excellent reasons why a move to Malta to work with eCabs Technologies might be the best decision you’ve ever made.

Glorious weather

Try an experiment. Ask anyone what they know for certain about Malta and the likelihood is that they will say: the beautiful weather.

The country boasts 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, with hot summers and relatively mild winters.

This means that you can usually swim in the Mediterranean Sea (or an outdoor pool) pretty much from late-April to late-October. Outdoor leisure activities and outside dining are also possible for most of the year.


Malta is a bilingual country, with two official languages: Maltese and English. Almost everyone speaks English.

If you understand/speak/read English, you should have no problem at all getting by in your personal and professional life if you move to Malta. Quite a few Maltese people also understand and speak Italian.

A move to Malta means heritage on your doorstep

We mentioned the amazing weather the Maltese Islands enjoy earlier. Let’s go on to another thing that they are famous for – its rich history which dates back all the way to the Neolithic period.

Why move to Malta for work 5 great reasons

There is a plethora of archaeological sites dotted around the islands, as well as museums and other cultural landmarks.

In the capital Valletta, as well as the old capital Mdina (see the photo on the left), the Three Cities and Gozo, amongst other places, you can almost breathe in the heritage.

Furthermore, Malta has a vibrant all-year-round music, arts, and theatre scene. Towns and villages also celebrate a yearly feast (festa) dedicated to their patron Saint, which is always a colourful affair.

What does Malta offer to sports lovers?

Whether you’re an aspiring Rafael Nadal or Venus Williams, fancy a five-a-side football match, or want to hit the gym, when you move to Malta you will find plenty of places to practise – or watch – your sport and/or keep fit.

You’ll find gyms in practically every other town.

In addition, tennis / Padel courts and football pitches are available for hire at various sports complexes. There even is a golf course. Or you can even join a rugby or cricket team if that is your preferred sport.

There are also numerous activities for runners, hikers, abseilers, cyclists and more.

Easy travel to other places in Europe

The island is well-served by Malta International Airport. This means that, with a move to Malta, weekend breaks in other European countries – most of which are only a couple of hours’ flight away – are very doable. You can even pop over to Sicily by ferry.

Is there a flip side to a move to Malta for work?

No country is perfect. And for all its awesome advantages, Malta is no exception. For example, as we said above, the lovely weather is definitely a huge plus.

However, those people who are not used to extreme heat might find it a real issue during the summer months.

Investing in air conditioning at home is simply a must, especially if you will be working from there (and if you want to get any sleep at all during the humid, balmy nights).

Although the island is small, it also has the one of the highest car-to-person ratios in the world, which means that during various points of the day, traffic congestion can be a real problem.

Being so densely populated, noise pollution is another concern. So you may want to invest in noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs if you decide to live in a very busy area.

And finally, red tape / bureaucracy can be quite time-consuming. Sometimes it takes longer than one would think necessary to sort out and receive documents and so on. But that’s one area where our super HR department can help you with!

All in all, however, the pluses far outweigh the minuses, otherwise we surely would not have more than 15 different nationalities working in our eCabs team!

How to apply for a job at eCabs

How to apply for a job at eCabs

The journey to landing your ideal job at eCabs can be exhilarating yet challenging. In a world where competition is fierce, it’s essential to stand out and navigate the recruitment process with confidence.

In this blog post, I share valuable insights and tips to help you ace every step of the recruitment process.

Understand your preferences and priorities

Before you hit that ‘Apply’ button, take a moment to reflect on what truly matters to you in your next role.

I suggest considering various aspects, such as company culture, daily responsibilities, project interests, management style, office environment, and work arrangement (remote, hybrid, or on-site).

Remember, the interview process is not just about you impressing the company – you are interviewing the company just as much as they are interviewing you.

Prepare a winning CV

Crafting an impactful CV is a crucial step when you are applying for a job at eCabs. I would advise using a clean, polished format that spans no more than two pages.

If you decided to include a cover letter, keep in mind that most recruiters just skim them for writing style, level of English, and an explanation for a career change.

Make sure that your contact information is professional and complete (full name – first and last, no middle, location – city/state/country, telephone number – with country code and mobile number, and email address) listing essential details without any unnecessary embellishment.

Use a ‘professional’ email address, not one associated with hobbies or other interests. For example – [email protected] rather than [email protected].

If you decide to include a photo of yourself, make sure that it is also professional – no ‘duck lips,’ no alcoholic beverages in hand, a neutral background, no graduation or wedding photos.

List your employment experience in chronological order with your most recent experience first.  Include company name, job title, and dates of employment.

You should also include your professional achievements using bullet points under each employer. Wherever possible provide specific measurements, such as ‘increased productivity by 10 percent’.

Include any skills relevant to the role that you are applying for – the languages you speak, technology skills and so on. If you are applying for a tech role, list the software and hardware that you have experience with.

Finally, be sure to include your educational background, and any relevant certifications. You should not include scans of actual certificates, or grades for specific courses or O’ / A’ level exams.

Make sure you are ready for the interview

As you prepare to interview for a job at eCabs, I recommend reviewing the job description and identifying your transferable skills.

  • Dive into the company’s history and understand what drew you to the role.
  • Prepare responses to common interview questions such as areas for improvement and reasons for leaving your current job.
  • Have a salary range in mind for the role in the location for which you are applying.
  • Know your notice period or availability to start a new role.

Be yourself

During the interview itself, focus on maintaining a composed demeanor and making eye contact, even in virtual interviews (looking into the camera helps when addressing the interviewer).

Be authentic in your responses and engage the interviewer by asking thoughtful questions that go beyond salary and job logistics. For example, ask about the role, team, and company culture.

Don’t forget to discuss the next steps in the recruitment process and the expected timeline for feedback.

Nailing recruitment tasks

For some roles, we incorporate recruitment tasks to evaluate candidates’ skills. This is a great opportunity for you to show off your expertise!

Ask questions if you need clarification and ensure you submit your task on time.

If you’re unable to complete the task, communicate with the recruiter early on. Perhaps, there is a more junior role that the company can offer you.

Seal the deal

If you receive an offer for a job at eCabs, and you are excited about the opportunity, go ahead and share your excitement with the recruiter!

  • Make sure you listen attentively to the details of the offer in their entirety.
  • Your salary expectations should align with the previously discussed range.
  • If you need more time to consider the offer, request a reasonable extension, keeping it within not more than three days at the very maximum.

Once you’re ready to accept the job offer, communicate your decision, and agree on a start date.

Examine the employment contract

Thoroughly review your employment contract. Highlight any clauses that you may have questions or concerns about to discuss later with the recruiter. Do be open to understanding the rationale behind certain clauses.

Once you’re satisfied, it’s time to sign the contract and celebrate your official joining of the eCabs team!

Provide any requested information to get you into the appropriate systems and onto the payroll (such as bank account information, and previous pay slips).

If you need a work permit for EU employment, complete the appropriate application form and provide the necessary paperwork promptly (passport, CV, lease agreement, medical exams, and so on).

Seamless onboarding

Make your first days at work less stressful with these tips.

  • Make sure you are aware of and understand the arrival time, as well as any dress code.
  • Make contact with the IT department for technology setup and access.
  • Connect with HR/Office Management to get acquainted with your colleagues and office environment.
  • Schedule an onboarding session with your hiring manager or a senior team member to help you ease into your new role with confidence.

Finally, settle in and enjoy your new environment and teammates. Welcome to your future with eCabs Technologies – a journey filled with growth, opportunities, and success!

A journey of personal growth and success

A journey of personal growth and success

Personal growth is very important to me. And I count myself fortunate that the field I work in is conducive to pushing boundaries and fueling creativity.

My fascination with people and their dynamics drives me to work towards finding solutions that can enhance the quality of experiences for both customers and businesses. This gives me a sense of purpose in my professional endeavours.

Outside of work, my most important role is being a mother to two young and lively boys. They keep me happily occupied in my free time, and I cherish every moment spent with them.

I have also actively pursued further education through various courses and engaged in diverse projects. These experiences have enriched my skillset and allowed me to contribute effectively to different challenges.

As far as my career trajectory goes, I had worked as a Business Analyst since 2016, three of those years in a Scrum environment at eCabs. The company then offered me the possibility to move on to a Product Owner role smoothly and naturally.

Nowadays, I am responsible for defining the vision for the product with our key stakeholders.

One thing that I like – and feel is essential in my role – is to understand and anticipate our users’ needs. So, I can evaluate and prioritise product features and goals.

I truly believe my commitment to understanding customer needs and feedback here at eCabs has allowed me to contribute to my professional and personal growth.

Learning as I go

Scrum allows the team to work in small iterations. This helps the product to be built in an incremental approach, as we adapt to changes to return maximum value. This enables us to handle multiple projects concurrently.

One of my main tasks is evaluating the product progress at each iteration, as well as planning for the next one, based on the priority assigned.

So as a Product Owner I do not need to know all requirements in advance. Instead, I must take decisions to prioritise any backlog.

My fascination with people and their dynamics drives me to work towards finding solutions that can enhance the quality of experiences for both customers and businesses.

eCabs Technologies Product Owner Stephanie Portanier Mifsud

Our teams are very lucky to have a leadership team that is very approachable, supportive, and willing to support us through their invaluable and rare industry experience. They provide us with the individual space for all team members to be able to learn and excel in our roles.

I learn as I go along through continuous collaboration with my team. In this way, I can make the decisions and priorities to continue developing the right product for the business and stakeholders.

Pride and satisfaction

As a technology company that benefits from the wealth of knowledge that has been garnered over 13 years of operational experience, we are eager to bring our expertise and powerful technology platform to investors and operators alike as we venture into new territories.

Our decision to explore new markets was driven by the rising demand for our services. As well as a strong belief in the huge potential of our software offering.

My team and I have had the benefit of being able to rapidly push and test new product features onto the hyper-competitive local market, and then take those learnings and wins to our foreign partners.

We are proud and eager to bring our expertise and innovative solutions to a wider audience and make a positive impact on their lives and businesses.

I feel my journey and commitment to understanding customer needs and feedback has allowed me to contribute substantially to eCabs’ products. I cannot wait to see operations in the new markets scale!

Do you have the skills required to join Stephanie in eCabs Technologies’ super Product team?

What to do as soon as you move to a new country

What to do as soon as you move to a new country?

In this blog, we give some top tips about the first things you should do when you move to another country.

Sort out your commute

How are you going to get to and from work (if you are doing hybrid or office work) when you relocate to a new country?

Will you walk, cycle, hire a car, catch the bus, or use a ride-hailing or taxi service? Or perhaps a combination of the three, depending on the weather?

Check out maps, bus timetables, bus stop locations and ride-hailing apps to be better informed.

Once you start work, start a conversation and see if any of your new colleagues live close by to see if there is the possibility of carpooling.

Check out your neighbourhood

After you have got down to the first task of unpacking your essentials, why not take a stroll round the neighbourhood that you have decided to make your new home.

See if there are any supermarkets around. And check out if there are any restaurants or drinking holes that you fancy.

We know it’s so easy to order food and groceries online nowadays. But sometimes, it is nice to explore, venture outside and do things face-to-face.

And this may also be a nice way to meet your neighbours and maybe make good friends in the process.

Have some fun once you move to a new country

Being social comes naturally to some people. They are the life and soul of the party and they find it easy to make new friends. These kinds of people will find this suggestion an easy one.

For those of you who may be a bit more introverted, you may find this piece of advice a little bit more difficult.

However, even if you do not feel comfortable at first, when you relocate to a new country, going out to explore, getting out of your comfort zone, attending local events, making new friends as an adult, and trying out different things should be part of you settling into your new home.

Ask for help when you need to

Even if you are a totally independent kind of person, when you move to a new country, there will be some things you will not know about.

No matter how much internet searching and research you did beforehand. So go ahead and ask.

Talk to people – you might be surprised how most people will only be too glad to help. Especially if you are asking about something they are proud of, such as cultural events or traditions.

It is also a good conversation starter. And small talk can often evolve into something deeper, again leading to making potential new friends.

Stay in touch with family and friends after you relocate

It is all too easy to get caught up in your new life and not think about those you have left behind that often when you relocate to a new country and meet new people.

Schedule voice and video calls with your loved ones when you can – maybe try and make them a regular thing.

Another idea would be to write a blog online so your friends and family can keep up with your adventures.

6 top tips for a successful relocation

6 top tips for a successful relocation

When it comes to successful relocation planning, you need to start early and organise yourself well. Here are some important steps that may be of help.

Make a project plan

As soon as you have determined the date when you will be making your move, go ahead and book a removal company if you need one.

They tend to get booked up very fast, so they may not be able to help you on the day that you need them if you are not careful.

It is also wise to make a relocation budget, and stick to it as much as you can.

If you are moving overseas, now is the time to book the mode of transport you will be using to get to your final destination.

Make a to-do list

One key to a successful move is keeping organised.

Write out a to-do list and tick off the tasks you complete.

Not only will this make your life easier, but it will also give you a feeling of satisfaction that you are on the way to reaching your goal.

Things to put on your list include:

  • Key dates for when you need to complete your tasks.
  • Items you need to help you pack including boxes, tape etc.
  • What you are going to take with you / trash / recycle / donate.
  • Important documents and paperwork you require.
  • Services and subscriptions you need to cancel or redirect.

Check in with your moving company

If you have booked a moving company to help you carry or store your belongings, it is a good idea to check in with them a few days before your moving date to make sure all is well.

Also make sure to check that they will be there on the reserved day and at the right time. You don’t want any nasty surprises on the day.

Always have a Plan B to ensure a successful relocation

In life, things rarely go exactly to plan. So, it is important to have a ‘Plan B’ just in case.

In this way, when things go wrong (and they invariably will), try not to panic and do be flexible.

If you have an alternative plan, you can be safe in the knowledge that you can salvage your day/time/money.

Take care of children and pets

Moving is always a tense experience to a certain extent. Even more so if children or animals are involved.

Big events such as moving can make them stressed or worried, so do try and make their experience as easy and pleasant as possible.

On moving day, try to get someone else to take care of them, so you can concentrate fully on the move.

Research your new home for a successful relocation experience

Finally, do some homework on the country you are moving to well before you leave.

It is a great idea to learn about things like the weather, language, culture, and customs so you have an idea of what to expect when you arrive to start your exciting new life and start to meet new people.

If you are working onsite, you should also research where the office building is, and how best to get there, so you are not late or flustered on your first day of work.

5 reasons to move to another country for work

5 reasons to move to another country for work

In this blog, we outline why moving to another country for work can benefit you and your career.

Brand new life skills

Even before you leave your home country, you are already experiencing new challenges.

First off, even before you leave to start a new life abroad, you will have to hone your organisation skills to sort out your move. From packing your belongings to finding a transportation company to sorting out any pending administrative matters.

Once you get to your new destination, you may feel a bit overwhelmed by the list of things you have to do. Plus being in a new, unknown place – to settle down in, not just as a holiday – may feel daunting.

For the first few weeks, do not hesitate to ask people for help if you need it. You will soon catch on and start feeling more comfortable.

Discovering the best places for food shopping and entertainment will make you feel more at home. As will figuring out how to get around with public transport, keeping within your budget, and figuring out how to pay your bills.

Learning to cook your own meals (especially if you never did so before) will give you a huge feeling of satisfaction.

The most satisfying feelings come after a challenge. And once you’ve had some time to make a fresh start, you will also feel a tremendous sense of achievement.

Moving to another country for work can benefit your career

Moving to a new country and finding work there shows recruiters and employers that you can rise to a challenge, and are adaptable, independent, driven, and motivated.

It also shows that you are adept at soft skills such as good communication.

Many employers value international experience, especially in the tech industry. Showing that you have had experience working internationally on your CV is therefore a good idea.

All this might just give you the edge over any other candidates while giving your career a boost.

Experience a new culture

When you are on holiday in another country you only get to experience the tip of the iceberg, as it were. Once you move to another country for work, it is a completely different story.

Living in a different country for a longer period of time means that you will be able to immerse yourself in that country’s culture.

This will make you feel more at home (and less homesick, if you are missing your friends and family).

Expand your professional and personal network

Moving to another country for work can offer a number of career advancement opportunities. Working in a new environment can give you exposure to new ideas, approaches, and technologies.

All this can help you grow and develop professionally. Furthermore, when you work in a new chosen country, you are not only expanding your professional network, but your personal one as well.

The professional relationships with your new colleagues may lead to other interesting career moves, even within the same company. The new friends you make will probably remain friends forever.

A better quality of life

Moving to another country for work can often offer an improved work-life balance.

Sometimes it can also offer more vacation and better healthcare, as well as more diverse cultural amenities and more outdoor space and access to nature.

Living in a new country may also offer a more affordable cost of living.

Living abroad will broaden your mind

Meeting people who come from different cultures, trying new things, and having experiences which you would not have normally had at home will expand your mind and enrich your life.

When you live and work abroad, you are constantly learning and growing.

Interested in working with eCabs? We currently have a number of open positions in our head office in Malta.

People-related career

“My ‘people’ career makes me excited to go to work every day!”

Tracy Vella recently joined the eCabs Technologies family as Head of HR at their offices in Malta. She says that she always wanted a people-related career, even from a very young age. So, a career in HR, particularly recruitment, was a perfect fit for her.

Building a career focused around people

Tracy is originally from the United States but grew up going to Malta regularly, as her extended family lives there. She has a Master’s degree in Psychology, a BA in Psychology, and a dual minor in Human Resource Management and Sociology. Throughout her career, Tracy has worked for both for-profit and non-profit organisations across multiple industries and territories.

“I knew at a very early age that I wanted a career focused around people. And I studied all things people-related in school. So, Human Resources – especially a people-related field such as recruitment – was a natural fit. I’m very excited that all my previous experiences have led me to this new opportunity,” she says.

Why join eCabs Technologies?

The role/opportunity is what initially attracted Tracy to the organisation. However, once she interviewed with the hiring team, she realised that she would be able to grow and thrive in the environment/culture, and with the people she had met as colleagues. 

“We spend so much of our time at the office and with our colleagues. It is important that we feel comfortable and appreciated, and are given the autonomy to succeed in our own way,” she smiles. “If I have any questions, I’m encouraged to ask them. On my second day on the job, we all brought in baked goods and had them over a cup of coffee and a chat! I was also invited to a team building dinner with our Tech team at the end of week one. Everyone is just very approachable and willing to assist, up to and including the CEO.”

What does Tracy do in her day-to-day work?

It is Tracy’s responsibility to ensure that eCabs attracts, recruits, engages, and retains the most viable, talented, and appropriate people to join the eCabs Technologies team. She also works closely with the Marketing team to let the general public know what differentiates eCabs from their competitors. 

“It is important that we feel comfortable and appreciated, and are given the autonomy to succeed in our own way… Everyone is just very approachable and willing to assist, up to and including the CEO.”

eCabs Recruitment & Employment Branding Manager Tracy Vella

“I let people know who we are as an employer, what employment opportunities we currently have available, and why they should join us. If successful in round one, then round two would be to onboard our new team members from a recruitment/HR perspective,” she explains. “I am currently meeting all the team members, assessing recruitment needs, working with our wonderful Marketing team to put together some amazing employer branding campaigns to show that we are an employer of choice.” 

From the USA to Malta

Tracy is from New York and has been living in Malta for just over five years.

“I think the island is amazing, especially the people and the weather! However, every location has its pros and cons. I’m accustomed to businesses being open 24 hours a day, seven days a week; the convenience is unmatched, but the work-life balance can be lacking,” she says. “I think the biggest challenge has been trying to rebuild my ‘community.’ When you relocate, you have to rebuild your network and rediscover your way in a new environment.”

This, of course, is something that the eCabs Technologies HR and Recruitment team can help every new eCabs recruit with.

During her free time, Tracy enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, picnicking, and BBQing. She also loves spending time with her friends and family.

“For me, work-life balance means that you have time for both your professional, as well as your personal responsibilities,” she states. “I totally feel as though I’ve achieved it. I work until I accomplish my tasks at hand. Then once I shut down for the day, I refocus my attention on other people, places, and things. That’s not to say that I am immune from sometimes continuing to try to resolve work-related issues after I leave the office!”
