Global tech companies consider Mexico an advanced technology development hub, as demand for technical talent grows due to the country’s accelerated technical workforce expansion through the country's top technical universities.
Experts at NDS Cognitive Labs, leading digital transformation solutions provider, attribute Mexico’s innovation and technology development growth due to the many tech companies in the country, as well as the technical degrees offered by top universities
“For more than a decade, we have been focusing on sophisticated technology implementations for technology giants in Mexico like IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Intel. We are proud to announce that NDS Technical Talent, featuring 20,000 highly skilled technologists, are addressing the talent shortages of well-funded start-ups, mid-size companies and enterprises worldwide,” said Gustavo Parés, CEO of NDS Cognitive Labs.
NDS Cognitive Labs holds an NDS Technical Talent program, considered the largest Latin American technologist community with 20,000 trained professionals in software development and digital transformation. NDS Talent has partnered with US-Mexican universities and leading global companies where talent certification and training are available.
These benefits provide a global standard experience, as well as training in AI and digital transformation.
In addition to the tech talent expansion from top universities, there are continuous efforts to lead Mexico’s tech talent employment through Wizeline, a global technology services provider and leader of Mexican tech talent. This November, the company plans to lead an expansion through 10 Mexican cities, including Monterrey, Hermosillo and Merida. This decision is expected to create up to 4,000 tech jobs in 2022.
“With over a decade of experience building successful engineering teams from the ground up in Mexico, first with Ooyala in 2010 and then Wizeline in 2014, I know firsthand that Mexico provides an exceptional opportunity for global businesses to leverage untapped IT talent and cultivate future tech leaders and innovators,” says Bismarck Lepe, Founder and CEO of Wizeline.
Wizeline considers this strategy to be key as the US considers Mexico’s talent an important element to develop and lead digital transformation. The company aims to reduce the talent gap throughout the continent by accelerating professional development through a results-driven culture of technologist entrepreneurship.
“There is a deficit in the US market as demand for talent outpaces the number of graduates entering the workforce, and more US companies are entering Mexico with limited knowledge of the market, providing Wizeline an opportunity as a leader in the region to meet the demand by growing our delivery centers in Mexico and other Latin American countries where there is a surplus of talent,” said Lepe.
