- Episerver, now Optimizely, partners with Cafeto Software to recruit talent in Colombia.
- This comes as a win for Colombia’s ICT sector as a direct result of the interest of foreign companies to land in the country.
BOGOTA, February 2021 – After the acquisition of Optimizely and as part of an expansion plan to reach fresh talent, Episerver – the digital experience platform powerhouse – has decided to partner with Cafeto to set up a new development Hub in Colombia.
The partnership has the objective of leveraging Cafeto’s expertise of more than 10 years recruiting and retaining premium talent in Colombia in a continuous and sustainable way.
“We were looking for a new place to recruit talent, and through our assessment of Cafeto as our partner, we decided that Colombia was a sound place to start our operations in Latin America,” says Fredrik Tjärnberg, Senior Vice-president of Expansion and Strategy at Episerver.
Cafeto is supporting the first phase towards Optimizelys’s objective to establish a successful talent recruiting operation in Colombia, allowing them to speed up their understanding of the local market and eventually operate fully independently.
“We decided to develop our operations in Colombia through a partnership with Cafeto to reduce complexity and accelerate the process. From our experience building up our engineering offices in Hanoi, Vietnam, having local expertise is instrumental to be successful in building up a new center” says Mr. Tjärnberg.
According to Luis Perez, Cafeto’s CEO, “this is a significant milestone not only for Cafeto but for the IT sector in Colombia. –” We are very proud to contribute to the attraction of foreign investment in Colombia, but we are especially happy to provide career opportunities for young professionals through valuable partnerships.” -“This partnership reveals the result of years of effort to focus on the satisfaction of our customers and years of delivering high-quality talent resources,” adds Pérez.
