"This is a significant step and a clear indicator of UruIT’s growth as a leader provider of nearshore development services in the Latin American IT industry." Marcelo Martinez, Country Manager, UruIT Colombia

UruIT, a leading software development company based in Montevideo, Uruguay, recently expanded their geographic footprint with a new office in Medellín, Colombia. With another office in the USA, this is UruIT’s third office worldwide and second development center in Latin America. The office is located in Medellín’s technology and innovation hub, Ruta N, and has been in operation since March 2016.

This expansion is due in large part to the company’s continued growth in the nearshore outsourcing space. A location that was convenient to both clients in the USA as well as the company’s headquarters in Uruguay was appealing, as was the high quality software engineering talent pool they found in Colombia.

The focus of UruIT Colombia is web app development for innovative companies including both start-ups and established corporations. The entire team is comprised of software engineers who excel at front-end development with plans to grow the team in the immediate future. UruIT co-founder Marcelo Lopez expounds: “We are focused in replicating our agile and craftsmanship culture in Medellín and plan to invest heavily in the recruitment and office space in the upcoming months. This is a great growth opportunity for us, to expand faster, in a convenient geographical location. We are also happy to contribute to the growth of Medellín’s innovative IT ecosystem.”

UruIT’s presence is already apparent in the Medellín tech scene; the company has participated in several of the Medellín development meetups as thought leaders on AngularJS and in October 2016 they will be sponsoring the Medellín JS Conference as part of their commitment to the tech industry in Colombia.
