At a sunny and cheerful WeWork in the Chicó Norte region of Bogotá is located the new UruIT office in Colombia. The main reason why we decided to expand to Bogotá is due to the city’s size and its vast pool of talented professionals. “During these years working with nearshore software development in Colombia, we’ve had the opportunity of receiving job candidates from Bogotá. Some of them are part of our team today, while others aren’t, mainly because they couldn’t move to Medellín. From our experience, we realized that there are great profiles in Bogotá with strong skills in English and technical areas we’re interested in, such as Data Engineering, UX, Devops, and Machine Learning.” says Marcelo Martinez, UruIT Colombia Country Manager.
Besides being a technology and innovation pool in Latin America, Bogotá also offers more airline connections, especially to and from the USA, UruIT’s main market since its inception in 2007. We started operations in Montevideo, Uruguay, and in 2016 opened a development center in Medellín. “Being in Bogotá will allow us to tackle bigger and more ambitious projects, as well as to add more value to our existing clients, complementing their projects with new capabilities,” explains Martinez.
