Service enables start-ups to rapidly and economically scale their Agile-based engineering capacity

Responding to a growing supply challenge for talented software engineers in North American, Avantica Technologies has introduced Release 1.0 for start-ups. The service targets software start-ups that need to quickly scale their development and testing team but, due to a chronic shortage of experienced software engineers, are unable to.

U.S. headquartered Avantica Technologies, a leading Nearshore specialist providing software engineering services from Latin America to both start-up and established software companies, is convinced the service will help more technology companies successfully get to market. Or, expand their existing market presence.

“Release 1.0 is a timely platform that filled our need for talented software developers and testers who could quickly integrate into our internal engineering team. The Avantica Technologies engineers were productive immediately, helping us meet our aggressive release goals,” explained ArmedZilla's Chief Engineering Officer, Bill Sutherland.

ArmedZilla is a new social networking site focused on the U.S. Military community, providing a platform to connect millions of military personnel, veterans, friends, family and supporters worldwide.

Release 1.0 from Avantica Technologies is a suite of integrated software engineering services designed to enable start-ups to rapidly build, launch or expand existing software apps. In Silicon Valley alone according to the U.S. National Venture Capital Association, 40% of the 130,000 open positions in 2011 are for software engineers, mainly in the social media, mobile and cloud computing technology sectors.

The software industry in Austin, an important technology center, has nearly 2,000 software companies employing an estimated 20,000 people. It is the fastest-growing sector there according to a local Austin economist. One local Austin start-up CEO complains, however, that the challenge is there just aren’t enough good software developers to go around. The most acute need is for mobile and cloud engineers.

Avantica Technologies’ Release 1.0 is a suite of integrated software development and testing services designed to scale a start-up engineering team within days, not months or quarters. Its framework consists of:


  • Software Developers and QA engineers
  • Scrum Masters / Project Managers
  • CTO / VP Engineering
  • Talented, economical and available
  • Avantica Technologies customers choose the skill-set needed to integrate into their internal engineering team


  • Distributed Agile expertise, highly collaborative
  • Integrated extension of the start-up’s core team
  • Software engineering specialization

“The Release 1.0 Service solves to two addressable markets,” explains John Hitchcock, head of U.S. Marketing at Avantica Technologies. “One is the rapidly growing, venture funded start-up that needs to quickly release new features and integrations supporting its Consumer Web, eCommerce or Mobile app. offering. The second is the Angel or self-funded start-up looking to finish a POC or initial production software launch and needs to scale up a small, talented engineering team.”

The company specializes in software engineering for cloud, social networking, consumer web, financial and mobile apps. It has helped customers release over 1,500 software products and large scale Web apps.
