SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Today, Terminal, a company that builds world-class, full-time and integrated remote engineering teams for high-growth tech companies, announced that it is expanding its recruiting footprint to Spain and Costa Rica.
“With this expansion, Terminal will grow its presence in both Europe and Latin America in order to offer elite full-time, fully integrated technical talent to high-growth companies in the United States and Europe. Earlier this year we entered the European market with our expansion into Poland. Based on strong demand for even more talent, I’m excited to expand our growth efforts to Spain. In addition, we continue to add new markets in Latin America as North American companies have realized the depth of remote talent in the region and Terminal’s ability to quickly scale teams with dedicated engineers” says Clay Kellogg, Chief Executive Officer at Terminal.
Terminal gives tech companies in the US and Europe access to some of the globe’s best engineers in remote markets like Poland, Mexico, Canada, Chile, and Colombia, and this launch unlocks two new talent pools to help tech organizations overcome local engineer shortages. Hundreds of thousands more capable, time zone-aligned engineers will now be available for hire through Terminal, and engineers in Costa Rica and Spain will be able to find opportunities at some of the top tech companies in the US and Europe.
With an estimated 250,000 engineers, Spain is home to one of Europe’s largest tech talent pools, and that number grows larger every year. Spain’s high tech talent availability and focus on education and training make it a great location to scale a tech team. Spanish engineers have a median experience of 10.5 years and they rank in the top twenty of HackerRank’s ranking of the world’s best developers.
Costa Rica is also a hotbed of highly skilled engineering talent. The country invests 6.7% of its GDP into education, which is nearly 2% more than the United States, and boasts the highest literacy rate in Latin America. It also produces 7,000 graduates every year in technology, engineering, and mathematics – 37% of whom are women – and its digital tech labor force grows 7.6% annually.
“We’re excited to match first class talent in Spain and Costa Rica with America and Europe’s top tech companies, and thanks to our extensive research, we know that these talent markets will be a perfect fit for our customers,” says Kellogg.
As with all of Terminal’s launches, its expansion in Spain and Costa Rica will be powered by local recruiting experts who have a deep understanding of talent markets, labor laws, and cultural norms. They’ll work side-by-side with Terminal’s clients to build remote teams that can help companies innovate and grow.
Terminal’s goal is to connect high growth US and European companies with incredible global engineering talent, and, in turn, create new job opportunities for engineers. Engineers around the world can work with Terminal to propel their careers by working for companies that are solving the world’s most fascinating challenges.
Terminal is the leading platform used by companies to build full-time, remote engineering teams faster than any other solution on the market. The company provides tech-enabled hiring, employment and people-management solutions to build and run world-class remote engineering teams. Terminal has built teams for top tech companies such as Hims and Hers, Chime, Everly Health and Skillz. Learn more about remote scaling at Terminal.io.
