27 May 2013
Buenos Aires, May 19th, 2013.- Globant, leader in the creation of innovative software products that appeal to global audiences, turns 10 years old and celebrates with more expansion plans.
During these 10 years Globant has grown steadily, allowing the Company to build a team of more than 3000 Globers and hire more than 400 young professionals during 2013. In 2012, Globant's revenues increased to USD130 million with a portfolio of clients that includes companies like Google, LinkedIn, National Geographic, Coca Cola and Zynga.
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating this birthday with so many accomplishments. Few companies are able to turn 10 years old, and I believe that this milestone recognizes our focus, our determination to build high valued teams and generating new opportunities for the talent of our region. One of the pillars that guides Globant is to decentralize career opportunities to foster the growth of local communities”, explained Martin Migoya, Globant CEO and co-founder. “In celebration, we visited all our development centers in Argentina and Uruguay and were able to witness the impact we've produced by offering international career paths to young people living outside Buenos Aires.”
Globant was founded 10 years ago by four friends (Martin Migoya, Martin Umaran, Nestor Nocetti and Guibert Englebienne), who dreamed of creating a company that would break the status quo in the IT industry. They wanted to build an organization that could become the best software product development company in they world. During these 10 years, Globant has developed a strong decentralization policy across the region, aiming to take opportunities to young professionals based in different cities of Latin America. Today, it has offices in Buenos Aires, La Plata, Tandil, Bahía Blanca, Rosario, Córdoba, Tucumán, Resistencia, Montevideo, Sao Paulo, Bogotá, Medellín, San Francisco, Boston and London. With this in mind, Globant plans to open a new development center in Mar del Plata, where it expects to build a team of 100 new Globers.
“We are living in an era of technological revolutions, and today Globant has become a player focused on the last technologies and trends, building software products that combine engineering with design and innovation”, added Guibert Englebienne, Globant CTO and co-founder “Our culture fosters team work and permanent change. This allows us to celebrate our 10th anniversary with a highly competitive company and values that sets it apart for employees and clients”.
