Why was Zipdev Founded?
Zipdev’s co-founders, Mike Lenny and Daniel Altenburg, first met while living in Lima, Peru, where they earned each other’s trust playing rugby and traveling around Latin America together. Zipdev was born after they had both moved back to San Diego, when Mike asked Daniel for help finding solid software engineers to help develop an app he wanted to build.
At first they struggled to find the right option. Trying to build out a full team software development team in California was costly, and a couple false starts with teams in disparate time zones was discouraging. But soon they realized that they had a resource that they knew well right in their own backyard: Latin America.
So after much searching and relationship building, Mike and Daniel found some very talented software engineers to work with. They then spread the word about their experience with members of the San Diego startup community, some of whom convinced them to start Zipdev and became its first customers in 2015.
Zipdev has since grown into a multidisciplinary team of recruiters, software engineers, designers, QA testers, project managers, product owners, and more spanning multiple cities in the United States and Latin America and all dedicated to providing its clients with dependable technology professionals whether remote or onsite.
Zipdev recruits local candidates for your on-site positions and specializes in building your distributed team in your time zone with candidates based in Latin America.
Our dual goal is to alleviate our clients’ tech talent acquisition and retention headaches and provide our team members with rewarding careers.
