Phoenix, Arizona-based Intertec International announced March 10 that it’s expanding operations in Medellin and Bogota, seeking 100 bilingual information technology (IT) professionals for its Colombia operations over the next nine months.
According to a joint announcement from Intertec and Agencia de Cooperacion e Inversion de Medellin y el Area Metropolitana (ACI, Medellin’s investment-promotion agency), Colombia now becomes the second base of operations in Latin America, following Costa Rica.
“Colombia is strategic due to the quality of the talent, the availability of services and a location that gives us proximity to the United States and to our clients,” said Kent Feuerhelm, executive vice president of Intertec International.
The company is seeking “bilingual professionals in the areas of software development and engineering, quality assurance, software testing, automation, IT infrastructure, project management and operations support personnel,” according to the announcement.
Besides new operations underway in Medellín and Bogotá, Intertec also aims to hire IT pros in Cali and Barranquilla, according to the company.
“Intertec has 20 years of operations, providing custom software and IT services to industries such as electronics, aerospace, education, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, high-tech distribution, direct sales, finance, hospitality and others,” according to the company.
Both ACI and the national investment agency ProColombia aided the decision to locate here, according to those agencies.
