GlobalLogic has acquired Cubika, a prominent software development firm with headquarters in Buenos Aires, Argentina and offices in La Plata and Mendoza. The partnership will combine Cubika’s Latin America workforce with GlobalLogic’s Velocity platform and global reach to create a major near-shore innovation hub for software product R&D.

Cubika has a team of more than 200 technology professionals with expertise in Flex, SOA, Java and .NET technologies. The company specializes in building software products for the media, entertainment, telecom and finance markets. By partnering with GlobalLogic, Cubika will be able to maximize its investment in Argentina while providing employees with greater career opportunities and the ability to collaborate on a global level.

"We have long wanted to say that we searched the four corners of the globe for the world’s most talented software engineers. Now we can," said Peter Harrison, CEO of GlobalLogic, which already has a material presence in North America, Europe and Asia. "Argentina has quickly developed into a key technology hub, and Cubika has laid a strong foundation for even further growth here. The company has a great reputation, impressive client roster, strong management team and sincere commitment to Agile methods. GlobalLogic’s clients can immediately benefit from Cubika’s talent and near-shore capabilities, and Cubika’s clients can benefit from GlobalLogic’s depth, breadth and global reach."

"We chose to partner with GlobalLogic because it has strong financial support and shares many of our same values," said Sebastian Gryngarten, now Country  Manager of GlobalLogic - Argentina. "GlobalLogic’s growth plan in Latin America is exciting, and it already has a solid client base in the US. Our clients will benefit greatly from GlobalLogic’s worldwide presence and wide range of services and areas of expertise."
