US digital and IT services firm Tiempo Development has established a new software development center in Guadalajara. This is the company’s fourth high-tech development center in Mexico and second in Guadalajara.

The Tempe, Arizona-based firm, one of the pioneers of nearshore services, has employed more than 300 high-skilled Mexicans, who produce a variety of software services for American clients. “I have been impressed by the support of local government, universities and the community as a whole. We are happy to be making a difference,” said Cliff Schertz, founder and CEO of Tiempo.

The trend in U.S. based companies choosing to outsource their software development needs has grown considerably, says Tiempo, pointing to the lack of skilled human resources and rising wages in the United States.

“With Mexico producing some of the best educated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) graduates, it makes sense for companies to utilize the neighboring talent.”

Tiempo has been present in Mexico for almost a decade. Its other development centers located in Hermosillo and Monterrey.

Earlier in April this year, it acquired Mexican mobile application developer Jaguar Labs, bolstering its agile software development unit and expanding the footprint to the city of Jalisco.

“We are thrilled to open our fourth world-class software development center, and our second in the high-tech city of Guadalajara,” Schertz added. Companies it counts as its clients include Microsoft, Insight Enterprises, and Microchip Technology.
