Background

About Marcelo

I am co founder and CEO of UruIT, a software development company that has created user-centered web & mobile applications for over 10 years now.

This is me:
Software Engineer and Columbia University grad. Over the past few years, I had a chance to work and learn about the software development process from different perspectives, through different roles including development, business analysis, project management and remote teams coordination.

Creating software is an art, it requires passion, dedication and teamwork, but when done the right way, it delivers amazing value for people and organizations.

In 2008 I co-founded UruIT, an event that changed my life. Since then, we are growing at fast peace, and we were able to assemble one of brightest teams of Software Engineers in South America. We all share the same passion for good code, agile, continuous improvement and quality, going the extra mile for customers every day.

I love connecting with people and traveling, sharing UruIT's story and supporting entrepreneurship as much as possible.

This is UruIT:

In 2017 we were awarded Nearshore Company of the Year at the Nexus event
Almost 100 people are part of our team, working from Uruguay, Colombia and the US
Our goal is to assist startups and established companies in the US in their digital transformation by providing Agile development and UX services.
Over the past 10 years we have built long term partnerships with our clients based on our Agile culture, senior level development processes and User Centered Design methodologies.
