Salvador, Brazil–(Newsfile Corp. – October 27, 2022) – Avantsofta major software development house, is launching an effort to make it easier for startups founded by women to overcome historical restrictions on access to the technical talent they need to ensure business viability.
The company, founded in 2016 in Brazil, helps companies of all sizes that want to take advantage of the latest technology integrations to increase their efficiency, productivity and revenue. The new campaign to help women-owned businesses get a solid start-up footing not only aims to make industries fairer, but also aligns with Avantsoft’s goals.
“Startups founded by women often have less access to software developers. We can help solve this problem,” says Katie Gandomi, co-founder of Avantsoft. “This mission also aligns with a new suite of services we are working to introduce where we can build custom mobile apps for a fraction of the usual cost – a service that is typically reserved for larger businesses with bigger budgets.”
Avantsoft has a network of highly qualified software development experts and other leading professionals in related fields, located around the world and from all walks of life. New or experienced companies can approach the company and explain their software development needs, and be matched with the ideal workers for the job, regardless of their location.
“We pair world-class senior developers, typically from the United States, with junior developers from at-risk communities around the world to create teams that can execute low-cost projects that drive community economic development without compromising quality,” says Gandomi. .
As a sign of her belief and commitment to the Avantsoft cause, US-born Gandomi moved to Brazil, where the company is based. She did this based on the idea that Latin America has the potential to be the future hub of software contracts for developed countries, especially for startups founded by women in the United States in due to shared time zones. This makes it easier for US companies to work with Brazilian and other developers in parallel, without any of the long wait times that can occur when using professionals located in other time zones.
Avantsoft’s skillful ability to source the best candidates helps explain its steady growth since its inception. Along with this, their commitment to recruiting top-notch software developers, regardless of age, background or socio-economic status, demonstrates their commitment to equal employment opportunity.
“We often hire at-risk populations and train developers early in their careers, typically their freshman year in college, through to higher seniority,” says Gandomi.
Paulo Carvalho, the other co-founder of Avantsoft, runs a popular blog where he details the ins and outs of the software development industry. As an insider in the field, Carvalho recognizes the additional hurdles that some female-owned startups may face compared to their male counterparts.
“It has never been so difficult to have good developers in your team. Having the highest salary is not enough anymore,” says Carvalho. “That can be twice as true for startups, and founders might have a harder time getting the software development support they need.”
