Altimetrik Opens Office in Mexico to Tap into Talent and Support Global Growth
Altimetrik, a leading digital business enablement company, announced the opening of a new office in Mexico to meet customer demand and support global expansion.
“Establishing a technology hub in Guadalajara, Mexico was a strategic decision that will service our growing client needs,” says Raj Sundaresan, Altimetrik’s CEO. “Our emphasis on digital business, innovation, product and data engineering are a good fit with the technology talent pool in Mexico, and it is another step in expanding our global footprint to hire the best talent available.”

Mexico’s Information Technology industry in the Guadalajara area, also known as the Mexican Silicon Valley, has been an active tech hub since the early 1970’s. The exponential growth of the nearshore model has helped to develop a high quality and talent pool of software developers and engineers who have been enmeshed in a Silicon Valley-like culture, making Mexico an ideal location to expand the company’s operations and find talent. The country has 600,000+ IT professionals with 11% average growth rate adding 115,000 technology and engineering graduates a year, from over 110 universities.
Altimetrik’s Mexico office will look to expand the company’s focus in product and data engineering and digital transformation skills. In addition, there will be a focus on customer-facing roles like engineering leaders, user experience specialists, and product managers/owners. A large number of U.S.-based companies across banking, financial services, and technology already have a business presence in Mexico. This will give Altimetrik the human capital needed to extend its business in product and data technologies for the growing demand of digital businesses, and increase the company’s global footprint as it supports a global delivery model and engineering culture.
“We will maintain Altimetrik’s incredibly high bar for attracting and selecting engineers, and our goal is to have a team of 150 employees in place by year end with additional hiring through 2022,” says Omar Arana, Altimetrik’s Mexico Head of Engineering and Technology Center.
“We continue to see strong revenue growth as a company, most recently achieving over 40% revenue growth year over year for the month of April,” Sundaresan continued. “This increase comes on top of 34% growth in the first quarter and 29% in 2020, both year over year figures, despite widespread disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. We’re anticipating the same kind of growth, if not better, across the board in the next several quarters,” says Sundaresan.
The Mexico office adds to the company’s existing global footprint across the U.S., India, Uruguay, Japan, Canada, Poland, further positioning Altimetrik to meet the growing needs of its clients’ digital business priorities.
