Building A Nearshore Tech Team Through The BOT Model

Co-founder and CMO at CodersLink, a technology solutions agency helping companies find and build elite IT nearshore teams in LATAM.

Nearshore tech teams are often regarded as one of the ways large companies bolster their IT department productivity. In reality, companies from all sizes are able to tap into the advantages of this type of outsourcing.

The implications of building a nearshore team stop a lot of C-levels, managers or founders in their tracks as they explore this option to expand their access to specialized talent, reduce labor and hiring costs and manage their growth demands. A key to successful and scalable nearshoring is using the build-operate-transfer (BOT) model to establish and bring a team up to operating capacity.

The building that houses two iconic businesses in Tacoma’s Hilltop is scheduled for demolition to make way for new apartments.

Building Strategies To Unlock Growth, Inclusion And Prosperity For Women In Technology

Co-Founder of Women in Cloud. I influence brands and entrepreneurs to unlock economic access through digital strategy and partnerships.

It’s been shown that diverse teams, including those with greater gender diversity, are on average more creative and innovative, and ultimately, they are associated with greater profitability. However, as McKinsey & Company notes, “despite the growing number of voices pushing for gender equality across the United States, and many tech companies stating that diversity is a priority, we are not yet seeing concrete gains in the tech industry.”

In an attempt to exit gracefully, Ford put together a special styling package called the Heritage Edition. This package uses Wimbledon White paint to coat the body before two racing strips in Guardsman blue run the

Sterling Ruby Weighs In on His Fashion Week Film, Building a Brand, and His ‘More Fears Than Hopes’ for the U.S.A.

What do you see as the benefits of participating in an organized Fashion Week and speaking to the fashion world?

I see the fashion world as somewhat parallel to the art world. This isn’t a complete or definitive statement, of course. Both art and fashion have hollow, empty aspects, but they also share brilliant, thoughtful moments. Some of my best friends operate within fashion, and more often than not, our interests and projects run through both worlds—conceptually, formally, politically, etc. As I continue to make work between genres, increasingly it’s about deciding what medium best serves the current iteration of an idea and how to maintain a sense of fluidity through these areas. Participating in an organized Fashion Week is an opportunity to commit to a specific context, one that is tied to wearability and the body.
