(PRLEAP.COM) December 17, 2014 – Prosoft Nearshore, a leader in nearshore custom software development, agile programming, and IT staffing, recently announced that December 2014 marks the company’s 6th anniversary of its founding.
Six years ago company founder David Easterling, already the successful business owner of a Louisville, Kentucky-based IT staffing and software development firm, set out to establish a convenient offshore location for custom software development, mobile app design, QA testing, IT staffing and other related services. The location for this new enterprise not only needed to be safe and secure, but it also had to support a collaborative, agile approach to software development.
While other companies offered offshore software development and IT staffing in far-away locations like India, Prosoft Nearshore was founded to serve a unique need in the market that provides IT staffing and software engineering services to companies using a collaborative, agile approach towards software development with scrum.
After identifying San Jose, Costa Rica as the ideal nearshore location for custom software development, the company began with just a couple of talented software engineers. Over the past six years Prosoft Nearshore has expanded to include a team of more than 50 highly skilled software developers, QA analysts, web designers, IT recruiters and project managers.
Discussing his decision to open Prosoft Nearshore in Costa Rica, company founder David Easterling explains, “Costa Rica is extremely stable economically and politically, with a culture very similar to the United States. It is also located in the Central Time Zone and is a quick flight from Miami or Atlanta. This convenient nearshore location facilitates easy communication and ongoing collaboration between our software developers and client teams.”
Prosoft Nearshore software developers are not only highly-skilled software engineers but they are also fluent in English and have excellent communication skills and business acumen. One of the many benefits of nearshore software development in Costa Rica is that it is easy for Prosoft Nearshore software developers to participate in daily team communication and to even make trips to the U.S. as needed, to meet face-to-face with client teams.
President David Easterling said, “Prosoft Nearshore’s 6th anniversary is an important milestone for the company. We’ve grown quickly over the past six years, working with clients in California, Florida, and all across the United States. Our commitment to hiring top notch technical talent with a focus on agile software development, and our focus on long term engagements, helps our clients realize significant gains in productivity and savings.”
In order to celebrate the success of six successful years in the nearshore software development business, the Prosoft Nearshore team in Costa Rica recently enjoyed a special holiday gathering that included delicious food and entertainment, complete with a visit to Tapanti National Park in Cartago, Costa Rica, and the opportunity to ride a mechanical bull.
Looking forward to 2015 and beyond, Easterling adds, “We are excited about some larger product development projects in the year ahead and look forward to continuing to deliver high quality work and excellent value to our customers.”
