Quotes
I started TECLA to help bridge the gap between top software developers in Latin America and world-class companies in the U.S. that understand that great talent is everywhere.

It’s been many years of hard work, and we’ve succeeded in building one of the most elite communities of tech talent from hubs like Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Peru (my home country), Brazil, and over 16 countries in LatAm, so that you don’t have to.

When companies ask us how we’ve done this so effectively, I always tell them we’ve used cutting-edge technology to make the recruitment process more human than ever.

Say About Us

Douglas Santos
When we started our recruiting initiatives for LATAM developers, it was crucial for us to rely on a company that could provide deep local expertise to help us identify the best software developers in Latin America. The teams at TECLA really go the extra mile to understand our needs, which is what has made our partnership so successful!

Lead Technical Recruiter
@HomeLight
Drew Batshaw
Internally, we're moving much faster than we were without the developers TECLA recruited for us and we've been able to implement far more features. Once we brought on our first full-time designer in South America, it made the quality of our user interface, product, and marketing efforts increase substantially.

Why is Recruiting in Latin America a Smarter Alternative?

Top tier talent

Top-tier Talent

With over a million software developers, Latin America is a huge tech hub with untapped talent. World-class universities, programming schools, tech accelerators, and a growing entrepreneurial ecosystem are constantly improving the level of technical talent in the region, and TECLA is at the very center of it all.

Time zones

Collaborate seamlessly, and in real-time, with your developers in Central and South America. The vast majority of developers and tech professionals in LatAm work between U.S. Pacific Time and one or two hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time. This is a huge advantage for companies that understand the value and benefits of overlapping schedules across their organization.
Timezones
English

English

As work becomes more remote and distributed, fluid English communication in both oral and written forms is imperative. In recognizing this importance, the Latin American developer community at TECLA consistently exceeds expectations amongst our clients.

Soft Skills

Developers in Latin America score highly in soft skills, making them an excellent asset for teams working remotely or in fast-paced environments. Today, software developers are expected to do much more than just code, and soft skills are something we at TECLA are very keen on coaching candidates on to help them improve.
Soft Skills
Cultural fit

Cultural Fit

When recruiting internationally, there are many locations and different continents to consider, but few that provide as high of a level of cultural similarity as Latin America. Tech professionals and software developers in Latin America understand what it’s like to work with U.S., Canadian, and European teams.

Infrastructure

LATAM has come a very long way in the last two years in terms of infrastructure, high-speed internet availability, and the work-from-home model overall. When considering expanding your team internationally, you can count on software developers in Latin America to have access to the equipment and tools needed to work with your team without any technical issues.
