Software development powerhouse expands to its first location outside of Europe in Merida, Mexico
STX Next, Europe’s largest Python software development company, has opened a new delivery centre in Latin America. The facility is located in Merida, Mexico and is STX Next’s ninth global location and first outside Europe.
STX Next has successfully delivered digital services to clients around the world from its eight locations across Poland for over 17 years. CEO Maciej Dziergwa believes the Merida delivery centre will help meet the company’s ambitious plans for global expansion, while giving STX Next’s US-based customers access to talented technical staff in a similar time zone to their own.
Jose Mendoza, STX Next’s former Director of Strategic Services, heads the new centre and takes on a new role of Managing Director for Latin America. The office will see STX Next tap into Mexico’s pool of talented software developers in a city rapidly developing a reputation for innovation.
Maciej Dziergwa, CEO at STX Next, said: “This new delivery centre marks the start of an exciting new phase for the business and is evidence of the global demand for high quality digital services.”
“While we’ve formed many strong partnerships with businesses in North America from our locations in Poland since we launched 17 years ago, the time difference between our US customers and our development teams in Poland understandably created practical hurdles. The logical next step is therefore to expand STX Next globally and establish a physical presence in a part of the world with an exciting tech scene.”
“Opening an office in Mexico gives us the opportunity to on-board new developers and overcome these challenges.”
Jose Mendoza, Managing Director LatAm, said: “In the years before we chose to open a delivery centre in Mexico, we researched the area extensively. The high calibre of talent in the Merida and the Yucatan region, coupled with the proximity to our US customers, made the decision to set up in the city a logical one.
“Mexico’s tech scene is already thriving and is set for further growth, so this is an exciting opportunity for us to join this revolution and demonstrate the value that European businesses can gain by setting up a base in the country.”
With the newly opened office in Mexico, the company plans to expand its presence in the US market.
Mendoza: “Opening a new delivery centre means we are able to further strengthen our relationships with existing customers in the US, and the presence of good flight connections to American cities will surely lead to the beginning of many new important partnerships too.”
STX Next has begun hiring software developers and team leaders from the Yucatan region to work at the new centre.
Mendoza: “Our recruitment drive has already been under way for some time. We believe that an integral part of building a successful team is ensuring that we find the right culture fit and look to developers with the right soft skills as well as technical capabilities, in keeping with the wider STX Next philosophy.”
Spurred on by the successes of nearly two decades of work in Poland, Mendoza is hopeful that STX Next’s presence in Mexico will be just as prosperous.
He concluded: “We have a successful business strategy in Poland, and we want to replicate that as best we can, 6,000 miles away in Merida. This is a major step in STX Next’s global expansion plans, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
