Koombea: A Nearshore Software Development Company
At Koombea, we are proud to provide world-class nearshore development services. We employ a diverse and talented team of software engineers from all over Latin America, including Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Mexico, and Peru, to name a few. Latin America is rich with quality software development talent. Koombea can help your company tap into this talent pool with our nearshore software development services.
We understand how important collaboration and communication are to a project’s overall success. Unfortunately, it is difficult to collaborate or communicate with software engineers more than one or two time zones away. As a result, many companies shy away from outsourcing software development in favor of an in-house team. However, building a fully staffed software development team in-house can be expensive and difficult due to a lack of available talent.
The nearshore software development model we use at Koombea works so well because we have software engineers in your time zone. Therefore, when you need to communicate or collaborate with our teams, you know that the time difference is non-existent or minimal (in most cases, two hours or less).
In addition, our development teams are experienced working and collaborating remotely within Koombea’s own custom Agile development process. We employ a wide range of different tools to facilitate remote collaboration and effective communication such as, Slack, Jira, and Figma.
At Koombea, we can leverage the immense pool of software development talent in Latin America to quickly and expertly fill your company’s development needs at a cost more favorable to your budget.
Our skilled team will assist your business with every aspect of nearshore software development to ensure that your project is ultimately successful. If your company is still unsure if it is open to nearshore software outsourcing, learn more about the benefits of nearshore software development and working with Koombea.
The Benefits of Nearshore Software Development
There are several reasons why businesses choose to employ nearshore software developers. Typically, companies choose nearshore software development when they have limited budget resources, a lack of development talent, or plans for the future that don’t include multiple development projects.
The truth is a nearshore software company, like Koombea, can easily build and maintain an application for your business. Many businesses find there is no need to hire development talent, pay for office space, and maintain salaried employees for a single project. If you’re unsure if nearshore software outsourcing is right for your business, check out the benefits of nearshore software development below.
It is no secret that outsourcing can help businesses cut costs. For example, hiring a nearshore software team is significantly cheaper than hiring a comparable team in the United States. However, nearshore software outsourcing helps businesses save more than the cost of labor. For example, when your company outsources software development, it doesn’t pay for office space, hardware, software, human resources efforts to hire and retain talent, and the typical benefits associated with full-time employment like healthcare and retirement matching.
Software development is not a cheap service. Outsourcing a development project to a nearshore software company will still cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the unique nature of your company’s custom software development project. Nevertheless, nearshore outsourcing is often chosen by businesses to control their costs. Compare the costs of nearshore software development to onshore development and see how much your business can save working with a skilled development company like Koombea.
Communication is an essential part of collaboration. Many businesses choose nearshore software outsourcing because it is easy to communicate with nearshore developers versus offshore developers. However, your business cannot be sure it will be able to clearly communicate with offshore developers in India, China, or other popular offshore development countries.
Nearshore software companies should be proficient in English. At Koombea, our teams and project managers speak English fluently. As a result, you will never have communication issues with our development, design, and project management teams. This ensures that your custom software development project is collaborative and that your goals and objectives are clearly understood.
Time Zone Proximity
Beyond English fluency, time zone proximity is vital to collaboration, communication, and timely results. Nearshore software development companies operate within one or two time zones from your business. This proximity in time facilitates timely communications and helps projects move faster. However, regular communication will be difficult to maintain if you work with an offshore developer due to the large time difference.
At Koombea, the bulk of our software development team is located in the Central time zone. However, for the most part, Latin America does not observe daylight savings time. Therefore, during daylight savings time in the United States, most of our Latin American developers will be working in the Eastern time zone.
We pride ourselves on availability. At Koombea, we believe that collaboration and communication are essential to developing world-class software. As a nearshore development team, we can guarantee regular communications because we are at work when your company is at work.
Access to More Development Talent
Physical proximity can limit the amount of talent your business has access to. For example, if your business doesn’t operate in a large metropolitan area, it might have difficulty finding all the development talent it needs.
The most significant benefit of nearshore outsourcing, beyond cost savings, is access to a greater talent pool. With nearshore software outsourcing, your business won’t be limited to the development talent in its immediate vicinity. Instead, nearshore software development companies offer businesses access to a rich global talent pool.
At Koombea, we offer our partners access to the best software engineers in Latin America. Many companies are beginning to discover Latin America as a talent-rich development resource. No matter what custom software development project you have in mind, Koombea has the skilled software developers necessary to finish the project on time and within budget.
Don’t worry about finding, hiring, and retaining the best development talent. Instead, find a nearshore software development partner like Koombea that you can trust with every aspect of your development project.

IT Staff Augmentation
Nearshore outsourcing doesn’t stop at full development. Many businesses looking to fill skill gaps on their development teams are turning to nearshore software developers because of their skill, availability, and affordability. Staff augmentation is the best development solution for businesses with established projects and development teams. In addition, businesses choose staff augmentation when they have difficulty finding or retaining certain skilled employees.
Staff augmentation is also used by businesses that want to reduce and control development costs. Koombea can help your business fill its staffing needs with the best software engineers Latin America has to offer. When you work with Koombea for staff augmentation, our internal team will provide your company with promising software development candidates to interview for your open positions. When you find the candidates you like, we will create a contract, and they will start working on your project immediately.
Finding the right talent can be difficult, especially with the ongoing shortage of technical development talent. Let us know what skills you need on your team, and we will provide you with top-tier candidates to interview. Your business will be able to interview any candidate we find promising, and if you think they won’t be a good fit for your team or needs, your business is under no obligation to hire them. At Koombea, we work hard to find our partners the right talent for their projects.
The dedicated team approach might seem similar to software outsourcing, but it is more similar to staff augmentation. For example, if your business has a large software development project, likely multiple teams are working on it. The dedicated team approach is like augmenting your staff with an entire team. However, dedicated teams work autonomously instead of being managed by your team leads.
Koombea can provide your business with a dedicated software development team to help speed up the development process and offer expert guidance and assistance in any area of need. Working with a dedicated team allows your business to access the precise expertise required to overcome challenges and meet the demands of ongoing software development projects.
The dedicated team model supplements the skills your internal teams already have. Often, businesses will choose the dedicated team model when there are technical skills their internal teams lack. Dedicated teams are autonomously managed, but they work jointly with your internal teams to achieve your business objectives.
