Expat Employment Questions (Budapest)

Hello everyone! My name is Chris, and my partner and I are planning a move to beautiful Budapest by the end of Protected content . I had a question about employment and visa applications.

A little background first..

I currently work as an Infrastructure Consultant for a software company and have several years experience in the IT world. I know companies like IBM, Prezi, LogMeIn all have a huge presence in Budapest. I also have experience with numerous ERP systems - including SAP, which I know is very prominent in the EU.

My questions are, how soon should I have a job lined up to begin the visa application process? Does anyone know how common it is for tech companies in Budapest to hire American expats for work? I have read that there is a small but booming tech bubble in the area and I would greatly appreciate any feedback that one may have on the matter.

Köszönöm!
