A software company on the horizon.
Rolando Larrainci and Fabián Fernández, met while working at a multinational information technology services company, specifically developing software solutions for the U.S. offices of one of the Big Four leading auditing firms. In the years working for that company, they gained insight about the pains of working with remote teams based on different corners of the world: strong vertical hierarchical structure, large time zone difference, culture mismatch and language. When observing these adversities they understood the great opportunity they had in front of their eyes!
KAIZEN Softworks was founded.
Our founders quit their jobs and started a new adventure. Since KAIZEN’s inception, they conceived the idea of a transparent and flexible company that, based on a horizontal structure and a collaborative mindset, could provide high quality software solutions for the U.S. and Uruguay markets. In the beginning, KAIZEN started as a backyard little office with 3 people eager to explore that market niche.
Delivery Center opens in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The team grows with people working on small projects with very diverse partners (some national, others from the U.S.). Already at this point, there was a clear willingness to specifically target U.S. customers.
Growth & learnings
Large partnerships were established, which allowed an interesting growth in both headcount and new industries. Back in those days, each of these clients needed to consolidate small teams of 2 or 3 people. Over the years these teams grew up to have 15 people working simultaneously in one of the largest projects. 2016 was a year of great learnings in which the business target was recalibrated and aimed again at the U.S., closing relations with local clients.
Commercial office opens in Boston, MA
Thanks to our efforts and achievements, it became necessary to have a local presence in the U.S. to be closer to our partners.
Our work was showing off. We were recognized as the Largest Exporter Company of ICT Services (Information & Communications Technology) in Uruguay, gaining the same recognition again in 2021.
Constant learning and new challenges.
Nowadays, we take pride in being a company which works with Agile principles and a collaborative mindset. Our commitment is to provide the space for people to be their greatest selves. We believe the true path to success lies in supporting people to thrive at work and live great lives. We do our best not only to ensure our partners but also our team constant learning & professional growth, making sure they achieve their best outcomes. We believe this way of working is much more efficient, generating more transparency and flexibility, improving the value delivered to our partners.
