I'm a technical lead in the field of software engineering based in the UK.
My salary here is a fraction of what it would be in the US. So, it makes financial sense for me to move over there, for at least a few years. This is especially true as I'm still young enough to not have a family to worry about uprooting.
Given my qualifications, both professional and academic, I'm fairly sure I should qualify for a H1B visa without too much issue.
However, I have absolutely no idea whatsoever how to find job openings that are willing to sponsor a H1B for the right candidate. In the UK, if I want a new job, there are a handful of recruiters that I would turn to and they'd act as a middle-man between myself and the companies they work with. However, I don't know of any organisations like that in the USA.
Obviously, I could just go and apply to the big corporations like FAANG, but I'm not particularly interested in working for companies like that.
I've tried job boards on LinkedIn etc but they rarely stipulate whether or not they're willing to consider foreign nationals.
Could someone point me in a good direction to start? Either specific recruitment organisations, resources, or general strategies for finding these positions would be appreciated.
