24 Jun 2019
With a strong focus on women, Globant opens the call for the firsts Full Stack commissions in Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Rosario. The initiative is part of the 500 scholarship program that the company announced for Argentina, Colombia and Mexico.
Buenos Aires, 19 June 2019 – Globant (NYSE: GLOB), a digital native company that offers innovative technology services, is launching together with Acamica the first stage of the scholarship program to train 500 people in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico with the aim of opening new opportunities for talent in the region.
The program is strongly focused on the development of women in technology: Of the 500 scholarships, 80% is aimed at women who have an interest in developing in an industry with huge growth and challenges, promoting the inclusion and diversity of the sector.
In this first instance candidates can apply for Full Stack commissions in Buenos Aires, Rosario and Cordoba. Subsequently, opportunities will be opened in other Full Stack and Front-end commissions as well as in other cities in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico.
"Today the industry generates a million jobs in Latin America. It is an unprecedented opportunity and our region has an excellent talent pool to respond to the growing global demand. With these scholarships we aim to provide more tools to our young people to be able to train for the new opportunities that will arise in the future. At the same time, we want to promote the inclusion and diversity of the sector so that more women join the industry," said Martin Migoya, Globant CEO and Co-founder.
"Technology-based companies are generating opportunities faster than the education system provides trained people. Acamica aims to reduce this training gap through an innovative methodology that qualifies professionals in an agile and effective way. Thanks to Globant's support, this educational offer today can reach many more people, with the potential to transform their future in the very short term," says Tomas Escobar, CEO and Co-founder of Acamica.
With this program both organizations will provide access to advanced Full Stack and Front-end programming studies. Those interested can apply through the Web at http://acamica.com/BecasGlobant.
