Turing Arrives in Mexico to Look for TalentBy Sofía Hanna | Thu, 03/10/2022 - 14:50
As the US continues to deal with the "Great Resignation" in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, a growing number of companies are capitalizing on the benefits of remote work to outsource highly technical positions. In that vein, the recruitment platform Turing has initiated operations in Mexico to connect local developers with companies located in the US that require their high-level technical skills.
“By 2030, the global talent shortage is predicted to reach 85.2 million workers. Сompanies worldwide risk losing US$8.4 trillion in revenue because of the lack of skilled talent,” as reported by Grid Dynamics.
By late 2020, the US had 1.4 million unfilled computer sciences jobs, which could cost the country an estimated US$162 billion in unrealized output, according to Grid Dynamics. Mexico has a large amount of talent in this field. Turing has over 12,500 developers based in Mexico and more than 103,000 developers located throughout Latin America.
“When companies go remote, they gain access to a global talent pool of engineers compared to the limited hiring options of a small pool of developers located near their headquarters. It is important to consider that they can not only hire higher-quality talent but also retain them for longer, which can contribute to the long-term professional development of developers,” says José Luján, Turing Developer Community Leader in Mexico.
Turing uses artificial intelligence for the remote identification, evaluation, hiring and management of software developers from all over the world, allowing companies to create their engineering dream teams in the cloud. “Turing's approach is a solution that replaces the traditional offerings of IT service companies with a platform based on Artificial Intelligence. We live in a world where remote work is a new reality, and companies that have adapted to the shift to remote work are thriving and have a significant hiring advantage,” said Luján. The company claims to be the first and only “Intelligent Talent Cloud” responsible for hiring, researching, matching and managing software developers from Fortune 500 companies to fast-growing startups, according to its press release.
Turing recently became a “unicorn” and has been recognized as one of America's Best Startup Employers by Forbes.
