Buenos Aires, Argentina, Nov. 15, 2018 – Softvision, part of Cognizant Digital Engineering, is a global leader in agile development of innovative software solutions and platforms for top brands. The company lands in Argentina with an ambitious development plan, aiming to hire 200 software engineers, developers and designers in the next 18 months.
Softvision’s first studio local to Buenos Aires is based in Vicente Lopez, where more than 30 employees are currently working on projects for their U.S.-based clients. In the next few months, they expect to open up two new offices to support the demand they foresee.
With more than 20 years of experience, Softvision is a leader in the digital transformation of top brands, with a global network of more than 2,800 professionals in 11 countries and across five continents.
Buenos Aires is the company’s first expansion location in Latin America because of its competitive talent, English-speaking proficiency, and central location which helps Softvision to serve clients and to coordinate with other key locations of product development. Also there is a connection of the CEO – Andrés Angelani – who is originally from Argentina.
This experience represents a personal adventure in Angelani’s life. He sees returning to Argentina as a new chapter. He is a technology passionate and entrepreneur born in Saladillo who left Argentina 14 years ago to work in the United Kingdom. “The goal is to build a ‘seed team’ that can lead Softvision’s expansion in the region. I personally know the value of Argentine talent – Ines Casares, our VP of Global Delivery Strategy and country manager for Argentina is a great example,” explains the executive. After living in the U.K., he moved to California where he served as Chief Solutions Officer at technology services company Globant, and since mid-2017, has served as the CEO of Softvision.
Angelani describes the role of Softvision in today’s world: “Companies need to evolve to be able to see where their customers want to go, and this can happen if they adopt a different mindset, one that emphasizes and rewards sustainable innovation within the organization. This can happen only with a collaborative approach that empowers and engages teams.”
“Every region has its own strengths and weaknesses, and our geographic diversity allows us to introduce high quality in every stage of the development cycle. Argentina provides us with a strong talent base. We believe that it is a good starting point to develop and expand our design and engineering communities,” Angelani said.
