Why is Guadalajara a strategic outsourcing location?

As Mexico’s 2nd largest city, Guadalajara has been the subject of a technological boom and is now dubbed as the country’s own “Silicon Valley” by the IT community.

Gaining traction in the eyes of foreign and domestic companies alike, nearly $120 million has been invested in over 300 local startups since 2014. It is on account of the talent, among a host of other reasons you should consider outsourcing your back-end development in Guadalajara.

Here are some of the reasons why Guadalajara has earned its reputation as a competitive IT outsourcing location

#1 Cost Efficiency

Developers in neighboring San Francisco’s own Silicon Valley are among the highest paid in the world, driving budget conscious business owners to outsource equally adept talent elsewhere. Moreover, Guadalajara is perfectly poised, timewise, to serve clients in larger cities like San Francisco (2 hr. time difference) and NYC (1 hr. time difference). It is also an increasingly attractive option for European businesses looking for a cost-effective offshore destination.

2# Education

Home to over 12 universities and 16 tech institutes, Jalisco welcomes over 85,000 IT graduates per year into the workforce – many of them choosing to kickstart their careers in the regions’ capital and premier tech hub.

3# North American Neighbors

Despite having 2 different official languages, graduates of universities and tech schools in Mexico largely have an excellent command of written and spoken English – making them bilingual and sometimes trilingual. While India has been historically revered as the premier destination for outsourcing, Guadalajarenses speak English like Americans – unlike their South Asian, British-accented counterparts and are more culturally aligned with the U.S.

4# Technical Toolkit

To serve clients both local and foreign, developers in Guadalajara are well versed and get trained regularly on all the latest and greatest back-end technologies including languages (PHP, Python, Ruby, JavaScript) and frameworks (Symfony, Django, Node.js, Spring, Hibernate) & databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB).
