El Salvador’s IT service company Applause Studios is reportedly poised to hire up to 1,500 software developers in the Central American country as it expands its operations to cope with the growing business volume.
Founded in 2013 by Darwin Romero and JosÃ© Giammattei, the IT company attributed the business expansion to new contracts it has signed in recent months.
Applaudo’s revenue has grown by more than 150% so far this year compared to the same period in 2020, according to a local Spanish publication. El Mundo.
However, new hires will have to wait on the sidelines until the company opens its second office currently under construction in San Salvador.
The new delivery center will have enough space to accommodate more than 1,500 software developers, the media said.
Applaudo is a pioneer in the export of software services to El Salvador. A large part of its income comes from the mobile applications it develops for its customers.
Although Applaudo has offices in 16 Latin American countries, in addition to the United States, its total workforce does not yet exceed 650.
According to the report, the company will hire around 100 new employees by the end of the year.
“We plan to close this year 2021 with 800 employees,” Applaudo co-founder JosÃ© Giammattei said in El Mundo.
