PSL - Software engineering best-practices

PSL has led Latin america´s foray into software engineering best-practices. Today, we specialize in partnering with US companies large and small to solve their software engineering needs.

PSL - SCRUM

We combine the agility of SCRUM with the process discipline of CMMi5 and the information security rigor of ISO27001, to deliver demonstrably world-class engineering services.

We understand engineering holistically by:

  • Fostering a passionate, highly communicative culture that loves an intellectual swordfight.

  • Accompanying our life-cycle with quantitative metrics and processes that give the client real time access to our work, and full transparency to the quality and productivity we deliver.

  • Delivering our services with the smartest bilingual talent Latin America has to offer.

  • Providing compelling UX and UI design to makes sure your product will be loved by your customer.

  • Wearing our client´s jersey at all times. Going the extra mile to deliver a project within a tight timeframe.

Large enough to matter, small enough to care...

With over 500 specialists, PSL offers a highly tailored engineering service to each and every client. We like to know each client by their first name, and provide full CEO access to all our partners, for any reason.

Our team is focused in servicing clients in the US and Canada from our offices in Medellin and Bogota (Colombia), as well as Mexico D.F. (Mexico).

Nearshore IT outsourcing partnerships

Nearshore synchronicity meets agile software outsourcing expertise.

Closer is better: Why outsource your software engineering to a different time-zone, when you can nearshore it in Latin America?

Same-time zone

PSL’s nearshore location overlaps 21 to 24 hours with all US & Canada time-zones.

Nearshore cultural alignment

Cultural differences with software development teams located in other continents can handicap a project. Our latin american based engineers are practical, transparent and forthright with issues, sharing ideas and information openly (including red-flags and admonishing their own mistakes!)

High English fluency

We facilitate communication by filtering for English when we recruit… Most of our engineers are bilingual or proficient in English to ensure there are no communication issues.

Ability to travel

Our nearshore Latin American locations boast over 400 weekly flights to main US cities, half of them direct. (And to boot, we are an exotic and fun destination to visit!)

Real-time communication

Problems can be better solved and challenges surmounted when your nearshore team is awake and available every time you pick up your phone, Skype or hop over to Slack for a quick chat.

Competitive rates

Our nearshore outsourcing rates are competitive with Eastern Europe and Asia.. being closer to your team shouldn’t cost you more and will add great value in expediency and collaboration!

Nearshore implies more seamless communication because we are awake when you are awake.

We establish long-term partnerships, where PSL becomes a true extension of our client’s local engineering teams:

Agile software development leveraged by nearshore proximity:

  • Our SCRUM teams are fully coordinated with your local engineers, interacting real-time in a single code repository
  • Leverage the power of iteration with a nearshore outsourcing team that is always available during your office hours
  • Keep control of the work that is being done by having transparent access to all code, unit tests and UX / UI designs, as well as real-time project activity tracking.

Engineers with a viewpoint:

  • We hire talent that feels confident to suggest alternatives and debate courses of action, so that PSL adds true value in helping the client arrive at the best technical alternative.
  • We speak up when we find project risks, making sure red-flags are raised early, when they can be more easily corrected.
  • Our engineers are recruited for cultural fit, and are open to learn as well as share their experiences to guarantee a successful engagement.

A specialized, stable team fully dedicated to your project:

  • We deploy dedicated project teams where engineers are 100% staffed to one client, so that all neurons are focused on your tasks alone.
  • Clients receive a detailed monthly report of how time was utilized by each engineer, guaranteeing transparency and accountability for billable hours.
  • Clients can flexibly ramp teams up or down, according to their project needs at any given time.

High level of technical competency with a modern approach to software engineering:

  • We deploy over 50,000 training hours per year to all our engineers, at no extra cost to you.
  • PSL keeps sharp in all new technologies and engineering approximations, including DevOps, automatic testing, micro-services, advanced data analytics, and machine learning.
  • Our clients currently span some of the most sophisticated companies in Silicon Valley in their business domains, as well as Fortune 500 organizations in the US and abroad.

Nearshore software outsourcing provides advantages at no extra cost:

  • Nearshore interaction is faster and more rewarding,

    As it motivates exchanges via conversations rather than documentation.

  • Software projects benefit significantly from real-time communication with the product owner.

    Nearshore makes synchronic communication truly possible.

  • Nearshore travel is easier:

    Our Latin American destinations are 3 to 7 hours by plane from most principal US cities --with no jet lag!
