With its innovative approach to sourcing IT talent, Nearsure is set to disrupt how the US market views and approaches nearshore software services.
Instead of recruiting for a bricks and mortar HQ, the startup, a spin-off of UruIT, hires engineers to work remotely across Latin America, tapping into the best talent in smaller cities, where universities are reputable but relocation is often difficult.
This business model, according to co-founder Marcelo López (pictured), keeps overheads low, resulting in better salaries for engineers and lower costs for clients.
The company already has a network of hundreds of people doing technical tests, with 15 or so active in projects and 6 more positions to be filled before end of August. Definitely one to watch!
