Latin America Rising: Enhance Your Engineering Teams

High-Performance Software Consulting, Training, Staffing, & Development

You need engineering resources and you’re back to the same old ways you’ve always used to find someone. Maybe you’re using a job website or working with the same old recruiter who has never understood your tech stack or real needs. In any case, you’re spending time you don’t have and our guess is you’re not finding the actual talent you need. If you do find a solid engineer, you can’t afford them.

You’re probably thinking, why does Ardan Labs think they’re going to be any different from what I’m experiencing today? We will be different because over the past 12 years we’ve built a worldwide network of engineers who trust us and want to work with Ardan Labs. With this network, we can provide you with a mix of engineers at different experience levels that you can afford without degrading the quality of your team.

We have helped many clients build teams with blended experience levels, where you hire one or two engineers from the US or Western Europe, and then supplement the team with engineers from Latin America or Eastern Europe.

However, since we are headquartered in Miami FL, we have a strong network of engineers from Latin America. Latin America has a thriving tech scene with untapped talent and endless possibilities. With our network and reach, you can hire these engineers and seamlessly blend them into your existing engineering teams.

Here’s information about countries in Latin America we have a presence in.


São Paulo boasts an extensive talent pool, as highlighted in the Global Startup Ecosystem Report 2023 by Startup Genome, ranking 17th globally with over 1 million tech professionals. Additionally, the city has a dynamic startup ecosystem, with Sebrae reporting over 2,700 active startups as of July 2023.

Furthermore, São Paulo leads in the fintech sector, recognized by Finnovista as the primary hub in Latin America, hosting over 500 companies and contributing to 40% of all fintech investments in the region. The city has also attracted substantial venture capital funding, with LAVCA noting over $4 billion in VC investment in 2022, representing 38% of the total VC funding in the region.

If we had to summarize why you should consider using Ardan Labs help you gain access to engineers in Latin America, we think this is compelling:

  • Time zone compatibility: Many Latin American countries share time zones with the United States, making collaboration easier for remote workers based in these regions. This alignment can enhance communication and workflow efficiency.

  • Skilled talent: Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina boast large pools of educated and tech-savvy professionals. While some may not have years of experience, their eagerness to learn and competitive rates make them attractive options for employers.

  • Government initiatives: Recognizing the potential of remote work, some governments in these countries are implementing supportive policies, such as digital nomad visas and tax breaks for foreign workers.

  • Increasing Digital Nomad Communities: Several cities in Latin America have witnessed the growth of digital nomad communities. Co-working spaces, networking events, and a supportive environment for remote work have been on the rise.

Nothing is stopping you from going alone, but consider these potential issues that we have experience navigating and can shield you from:

  • Digital divide: Not all areas within these countries have equal access to high-speed internet and technology, potentially creating disparities and excluding certain communities.

  • Regulation: Clear and efficient regulations are needed to ensure smooth processing on taxation matters, and protection of both employers and workers in remote work setups.

  • Data security concerns: Ensuring robust data security measures and compliance with regulations across borders can be complex.

  • Political and economic instability: Some Latin American countries face political uncertainty and economic fluctuations, which can impact investor confidence and hinder long-term tech development.

  • Brain drain: Skilled tech professionals sometimes seek opportunities abroad, posing a challenge for retaining talent in the region.

Accessing Latin America to augment and enhance your engineering teams could be the solution you’ve been looking for. Places like São Paulo, Mexico City, and Buenos Aires are bursting with talented engineers, especially in tech sectors like fintech and enterprise computing.

Latin America has a lot going for it. Time zones work for the Americas and Western Europe, talented and skilled engineers, language perks, and support from the government. It’s a fresh and promising option for remote workers, different from the usual places.
