One of the first things that some people think when hear about Mexico is Cancun! A vacation paradise to getaway and relax… I´m sure that many of you dear readers won´t let me lie.
I would like to let you know, that Mexico is much more than that, known in the IT stage as one of the main technology centers in Latin America. Talking about IT, I´m very sure that people have heard about Guadalajara (known as the Mexican Silicon Valley), Monterrey, Mexico City and probably about Queretaro, which is the city where ScreenIT has its headquarters. Last week this region was visited for an important world wide Technology Consulting, Staffing and Recruiting Solutions firm.
Adaptive Insights is one of our main projects on ScreenIT, from May 1st to May 13 our very talented and awesome QA Tester Severo Medina,visited the Adaptive Insights Headquarters located in Palo Alto California.
His visit mainly consisted on working with the US QA team, he received interesting trainings and validating processes knowledge, lot to share and learn.
Severo was welcomed by Henry Chen (QA manager) who took him from the hotel to the office. Every Monday Adaptive offers catering to their people, for Severo’s surprise it was mexican food! (Nice welcome detail isn’t?).
Your company needs to increase their operations, but costs are high in your country and saving money is important to you, so you are considering to look for a nearshore partner to work with. An experienced and talented IT team has high priority as the same as real-time solutions and easy information exchange between you and your provider. Not so bad, if apart from all these, you find cultural affinity with you and your team too. By reading lines above, which countries come to your mind? Is Mexico among those? Read more
Thanks to technology, so much has changed since many of us were children, we used to play outside, precisely because we didn’t have smartphones, laptops, ipads or any other electronic devices. We learned from movement, hand-on interaction, we absorbed information through books and socialization with other humans. Read more
“Someone with a degree is better than a person who doesn’t have one” Does it sound familiar to you? This article doesn’t try to give bad advice about school and definitely we don’t want to lead anybody to drop out of it, even when we think a degree is not always necessary (…if you want to be a doctor better stop reading this!).
Laszlo Bock, Human Resources Vicepresident at Google believes that academic record is useless (The New York Times). A company famous because of asking all its candidates a brilliant academic record, has changed the rules in the hiring model. Unless you have finished school recently, Google and probably much more big enterprises won´t ask for any kind of certificate.
This time we’ve prepared a very special input, let me tell you about it … Last week, ScreenIT was honored to attend a meeting at Ciudad Maderas, the place where InteQsoft the state IT cluster recently opened its brand new house, Vortice Itech Park. InteQsoft is the association of Information Technology and Communications companies in Queretaro, a group that supports technological development in the city. Read more
In the past posts, we have talked about different experiences in the Silicon Valley, last week ScreenIT CEO and myself visited San Jose and the Bay area with the purpose of bringing new development projects to Mexico and specifically to Queretaro.
Business meetings aren´t always protocolary, there are various “paths to Rome” including having fun and sometimes unexpected and awkward situations that accompany every business trip, which probably not a lot of companies are willing to deal with.
Working at ScreenIT offers several advantages, one of them is the opportunity to collaborate with teams from different countries.
Last week our company was very honored by the visit of one of our clients from the Silicon Valley. Hali, Henry and Alex from Adaptive Insights visited Queretaro with the purpose of meeting their team in person, to know their working environment and to train them on the fundamentals of Sc
rum… We took advantage of their trip and invited them to celebrate the big opening of our new facilities.
…Mexico is on top
In case you didn’t know it, Mexico is a very strong industrial country. As a prove of this, we have many foreign companies that continue investing in here.
According to the 2015 World Economic Forum Report we are number 4 Latin America´s country in competitiveness (compared to LATAM countries).
