US Tech Companies That Have R&D Offices in Argentina (Google, Salesforce, IBM and more!)

Argentine software engineers have built or taken part in building some of the coolest tech we’ve seen. They’re involved in everything from agtech, blockchain, satellite tech, ecommerce, neobanks, and everything in between. 

Many engineers start their careers in outsourcing. Some people even call these companies “software factories.” But often, these factories are lifeless and engineers that work there aren’t invested in the product. 

That’s what Argentine engineers crave — a product they believe in. And once they get on board, their skill and enthusiasm will propel that product to the next level.

Here are the US tech companies that have R&D offices in Argentina!
