Forte Group announces expansion of second delivery center in Colombia
Forte Group has announced plans to expand its presence in Latin America, opening a second office in Colombia just months after opening its first office in the region in 2020. Our seventh office location will be in the Colombian capital of Bogotá.
We announced our first Colombian opening in September of last year, establishing an office in Medellin. Since its opening, the Medellín location has grown to more than 20 talented IT professionals.
To meet the growing needs of the organizations we work with, we plan to hire more than 130 technology roles within Colombia — Medellín, Bogotá, and remote — over the next six months. We’re hiring roles across the entire software development lifecycle, but some of the most in-demand positions include software developers, Salesforce developers, quality assurance engineers, and product owners.
“We were drawn to Latin America’s unique business opportunities and the immense potential the region carries for software and product development. Medellín, Colombia was chosen as a place for Forte’s first office in Latin America because of its developing tech hub, the pool of talented IT professionals in the region, and for its favorable location to our headquarters in Chicago and the organizations we work with. Opening our second office in Bogotá is another opportunity to introduce our team’s expertise and to help the organizations we work with accelerate their business and evolve their engineering practices.”
— Steve Kreynin, CEO and founder at Forte Group
Why work at Forte Group? We’re a leading full-service software delivery company with more than 500 employees across five countries. We also offer the following benefits: competitive health insurance policies, gym memberships, flexible working hours, internal knowledge-sharing events, and team building events — just to name a few. We’re also offering assistance packages to individuals looking to relocate for these positions.
Forte is operating as a remote-work organization throughout the duration of the pandemic, so applicants from all over Colombia are encouraged to apply.
| “Having the opportunity to work with top-level professionals has enriched my critical and holistic thinking, which has proven to be extremely helpful when tackling challenging technical problems with cutting-edge technologies.”
— David Duran, Principal Software Developer, Forte Group Medellín
Colombia boasts a strong network of accelerators, incubators, investment funds, and technology parks that make it an ideal region for IT investment and recruitment. In launching our first Colombia office last year, we identified the area as prime for growth, fueled in part by the diversity and strength of IT talent in the region. Forte’s decision to invest further in Colombia is indicative of our belief in the region’s resources, people, and the significant commitment Colombia’s government has made to its growing software and IT services industry.
“Working for Forte Group in Medellín has allowed me to develop my professional skills to the level that I’m able to confront the challenges I never thought I would manage in the past. Also, working in a multicultural environment helps us grow as people, as well. So many excellent professionals who respect your opinion, experience, and passion — this attitude makes everyone feel valued as well as appreciated, and motivates the teams to push forward and broaden their horizons.”
— Carolina Calle, IT recruiter at Forte Group Colombia
