It all began when our founder Andres Garzon moved from Quito, Ecuador to New York City for graduate school. His student loan, which seemed ample back home, barely covered rent, let alone food and transportation costs. Acting quickly and armed with years of programming experience, he set out to find a job.
During the interview process, he stumbled upon a business opportunity. U.S. companies had a need for web programmers but when they outsourced work to India and Europe, they ran into quality, time-zone, and communication issues.
Andres set out to solve this problem. His plan was to recruit developers in the US and Latin American, circumventing the time-zone issue. He would work with top talent and pay them well to ensure quality. And he would use his experience in customer service to ensure clients were well taken care of. From the start, the mission of Jobsity has been to find and develop top talent. The name Jobsity, a play on the word University, speaks to the ongoing training and education available to all our employees.
As we have grown (with our headquarters in New York, our team distributed across +14 countries in Latin America, and with over +400 employees) our drive to recruit, nurture and develop programmers has grown exponentially. Andres recruited his first employee, JP Atiaga from IBM in Ecuador, gambling the remainder of his student loan money, he doubled JP's salary and paid him two months in advance. The bet paid off, the client was happy and Jobsity was formed.
We find that it is not just what we do - craft excellent code — but how we do it — by creating supportive working environments — that is the key to our success.
The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.
