Mature infrastructure

Compared to other countries in Latin America, Mexico has seen major progress in digitizing its infrastructure. There is also a great number of technology parks built for tech companies around the country.

Why your software engineering team should be in Mexico

Excellent nearshore development option for the US business

Mexico is a safe place for business and technology

Mexico is notorious for its drug wars and cartel violence – this is what we hear from the US media. But we never hear about millions of talented people graduating from world-class Mexican universities and building innovative products for international companies. Criminality and drug trafficking remain Mexico’s biggest problems. But those problems are mainly concentrated in labor cities (Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, Nogales), far from the technology centers. If you decide to hire software engineers in Mexico, you won’t need to worry about your employee safety.
