BOGOTA, Colombia - Oct. 7, 2019 - PRLog -- 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 the software development company decided to expand to Bogotá is due to the city's size and its vast pool of talented professionals. "During these years in Medellín, 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. The company 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.

Since September, a developer has already been working from the new office, receiving constant visits from his Medellín colleagues. "The cowork is beautiful and it has our style. Each company has its own office, but there are also collaborative spaces for networking and exchanging ideas with different professionals. The installations are inspiring and they offer attractive benefits that are part of the perks we offer at UruIT, mainly because they foster sharing and collaboration," says Alejandro Ochoa, UruIT's People Care Champion. UruIT Colombia expects to fill the room quickly by hiring developers with experience in the company's main technologies: Angular, .NET, React, Node, and Django. You can learn more about the open positions here.

On October 15th, UruIT will organize an opening event at the WeWork, wherein a couple of developers will be giving these talks:
  • "APIs with NodeJS"
  • "Design Patterns with React and Hooks"
Also, Marcelo Martinez and Alejandro Ochoa will present UruIT; its projects, work culture, and open positions. At the end of the event, attendees will have a chance to win a Nintendo Switch.
