Globant embarked on a large-scale expansion in Mexico, announcing plans to invest US$900 million and launch four delivery centers in major cities across the country.
The expansion will almost double the company’s headcount in the country. From the current 3,600, it is expected to increase to 7,000 over the next three years.
“Since we arrived in Mexico in 2014, our goal has been to be the best technology company in the country. Today we are more convinced than ever that Mexico has the excellent human quality and the necessary tools to enhance our growth plans in the region,” reported a local news outlet Canal-Mx.com quoting Globant’s co-founder Nestor Nocetti as saying.
This is how we experienced the opening of our new offices in Mexico City! 🇲🇽

The Argentinean firm, which also runs offices in Guadalajara and Monterrey, is apparently drawn by Mexico’s large tech talent pool and proximity to the United States.
In Mexico, Globant’s clients include the likes of Japanese automaker Nissan, insurance agency MetLife, retailers Liverpool and Coppel and franchise manager Alsea.
Weeks ago, the IT vendor sealed a partnership agreement with a Mexican refugee agency called Casa de Refugiados, announcing a plan to train educated immigrants in digital technologies.
