Argentine information technology firm Globant has expanded its operations in the United States by launching a delivery center in New York City. This is Globant’s third office in the United States, with the others loctaed in San Francisco, California, and Boston, Massachusetts.
“As our U.S. customer base continues to grow, it makes sense for us to expand our team on both coasts, improving proximity to our clients and providing better and more innovative services,” said Martin Migoya, CEO and co-founder of Globant, which last year became the first Latin American technology firm to list shares on the New York Stock Exchange.
Having a delivery center in New York will help Globant better serve U.S.-based customers, besides making room for hiring local talent. About 90% of the company’s clients are based in the United States, including the likes of Google Inc., LinkedIn Corp., JWT, Electronic Arts and Coca-Cola.
With more than 3,500 employees, Globant runs 26 development centers in 17 cities across seven countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and Mexico. The company is primarily focused on high-end technologies, developing software for social media, cloud computing, gaming and big-data companies.
The fact that media & entertainment is among Globant’s major industry verticals seems to have prompted the company to launch an office in New York. “With a growing ecosystem of technology companies and a massive presence of traditional industries like media, finance and consumer products, we believe New York is a great location for us to continue to grow,” Migoya added.
About three months ago, Globant launched a delivery center in the Peruvian capital of Lima, further bolstering its presence in South America.
