How to immigrate to Switzerland as an American?

I have always admired Switzerland and am considering living there after I graduate from university. Unfortunately, I have zero knowledge of German. I speak some French and Italian, and my fiancé is fluent in French. We both work in the computer field - he is a web developer and I am studying to be a database administrator. My question is, how likely is it that we would be able to live and find jobs in Switzerland? What sort of availability is there for computer related jobs there? And how difficult would it be to acquire jobs as foreigners? Thanks for any insight.
