As a business owner, it's relevant to have qualified and experienced developers who can build websites and cope with technical issues to help us stay on top of our game. However, finding people who are up-to-date and can keep up with our company’s needs can cause a major headache, and when we finally find them, their salary expectations may be out of our range.That is why more and more entrepreneurs have opted to hire remote employees.

When you think about where the best developers are located, maybe countries from Asia and Europe will come to mind. However, the LATAM market is quickly rising to the top. According to the SkillValue 2019 report, based on more than 550 technical assessments, the top 5 countries with the best developers in the world are: Slovakia, Mexico, Poland, Hungary, and Ukraine. Mexico came in first place with the best devs using Java and JavaScript.

In addition, according to Evans Data’s Global Developer Population and Demographic Study, the best countries to hire developers from LATAM are Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Colombia. The same study states that Latin America as well as the Asia Pacific region will grow the most in terms of programmers.

Hiring remote developers from LATAM can bring you numerous advantages such as the following:

Huge savings in salaries

The average salary of developers in the US is of approximately $86k USD per year, which can be painful for your wallet. Companies like Cápita Works can find you top-notch remote devs in LATAM and help you save up to 75% in salaries. What option sounds better than that?

No time zone differences 

When opting to hire remote developers in countries from Europe or Asia, the time zone difference will be significant and that can negatively affect your operations, as communication will be a problem. Instead, when hiring in LATAM, the time difference can be none or just a couple hours’ difference.

High-quality talent pool

According to Stack Overflow, top users’ reputation is higher in LATAM countries than in India and China. Having this in mind, it's important that you get help from companies specialized in hiring virtual employees, such as Cápita Works, as they have a team of talent acquisition specialists that will definitely find your best match.

Bilingual support

Language barrier is always a concern, right? Don't worry, professionals in LATAM have good english proficiency, especially when it comes to devs since English is a big part of coding.
