Kingston, Jamaica – One year ago, QualityWorks Consulting Group LLC, an agile software test consultancy firm based in Los Angeles, expanded their operations to Kingston, Jamaica. Due to the company’s reputation for innovation in technology, QualityWorks was able to attract and hire some of the most talented and brilliant consultants in the country. Within a year, their nearshore team has grown to over 35 consultants.
Despite projections that software testing in the United States is estimated to grow at a rate of 11% by the year 2020, computer science graduates and American Quality Assurance (QA) professionals with programming skills are currently leaning towards careers in software development. This growing deficit in the U.S. software QA industry has made it increasingly difficult for companies to hire and retain experienced QA developers.
In early 2015, QualityWorks’ founder and CEO, Stacy Kirk, a Stanford University’s Computer Science graduate, identified a growing need to launch a services solution for her clients that would eliminate the typical challenges & frustration of outsourcing. Jamaica, being the third largest English-speaking country in the Western Hemisphere, with shared time zones & integrated US/UK culture, emerged as a clear destination for their nearshore operations. Stacy Kirk explains, “I’m thrilled with our discovery of this bright & detail-oriented technical community. There’s not doubt that Jamaica will be the new Silicon Island”.
After one year of operation, QualityWorks Consulting Group Jamaica, has added clients in the United States, UK, and Jamaica including Ericsson, Swagbucks, H2 Wellness, Dynamic Parcel Distribution (DPD), Jamaica Money Market Brokers Limited, Aktary Tech, and nearForm Limited.
