This fall, we’re opening its latest Mexico location in what is believed to be “Mexico’s Silicon Valley”.
Situated in the state of Jalisco, Guadalajara is the second most populated city in Mexico with over 1.4 million residents. It’s renowned for its success in software development, business, finance, art, and culture. It’s a beautiful location and popular tourist spot for good reason: not only is it a great place to live and work, Guadalajara is also a cultural and artistic hub.
Guadalajara is home to Mariachi, Tequila, and Birria. You can attend the Guadalajara International Film Festival as well as the Guadalajara International Book Fair, the largest of its kind in the Americas. The large city has hosted 2 FIFA world cups and the 2011 Pan American Games. And that’s on top of the beautiful tourist locations in the area, such as Guadalajara Cathedral (Catedral de Guadalajara), the gorgeous the Templo Expiatorio del Santísimo Sacramento, and the Neoclassical Teatro Degollado.
It is for all these reasons and many more that Guadalajara was named the “City of the Future” by fDi Magazine in 2007.
On top of all the aforementioned benefits of Guadalajara, we also chose the city for our next location because it is one of the best places to attract, develop, and retain high quality tech talent in Mexico.
As a city, Guadalajara boasts:
- Over 78,000 IT professionals, with more coming each year
- Over 40 years of international IT investment and growth
- Creative Digital City, a 100,000 square foot high tech space
There are over 600 high tech organizations providing jobs and technical advancement in the city, which makes it a place local talent can be found.
The list of tech organizations in Guadalajara includes:
- Intel’s Latem Research Labs
… and now Aptude Consulting.
What this New Location Will Do For Our Clients
Aptude’s latest location allows our organization, which is already strong in Data Science, AI/ML, Digital Transformation and Full-Stack Development, the ability to hire excellent resources who will meet the ongoing needs of our clients throughout the globe. Aptude’s clients demand strong, highly skilled technicians who can deliver superior deliverables in an Agile fashion. This location augments the existing Aptude Mexico office located in Mexico City.
Aptude Mexico’s Director of Operations, Heliodoro Ramos, has been expanding Aptude’s capability in serving the United States, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil and Peru. The additional talent pool offered by Guadalajara will be necessary as he continues with the company’s rapid expansion and service objectives.
