Epica Model

Epica model creates Software Products from problem solving, to Tech Capital. Our process steers the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) to relieve the StartUp founder from hand holding so you can use that time to build your business.

EPICA’s HR model takes cues from “Direct trade”. our philosophy is cemented in Conscious Capitalism, we aim to bring opportunity to talented people all over Latin America in a way that is meaningful to them. Responding to the notion that today's world is witnessing one of the biggest transformations that may have either devastating effects on LATAM societies if opportunities remain out of reach or, could mean that talent drain no longer needs to happen, it is 2019 and opportunity can be anywhere!

Being a 100% remote company also means the talent pool extends to every corner of Latin America and is not circumvented by any particular tech cluster, allowing us to source and hire expert talent in an elastic way according to project needs and integrate them into Epica’s technology-agnostic process that guarantees the delivery of “Technology Capital” you can actually use to lean your company growth against.

About Us

With over 60 years of combined experience and a deep love for Latin America we were able to craft a 100% remote software process that guides our developers to deliver Technology Capital at the same time they are able to innovate right where they are, the opportunity to be competitive on a global scale. We call it “IMPACT SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT”.

We realized there was an opportunity to harness all that creativity that Latin American culture has to offer. We developed a process that is able to systematically deliver Technology Capital at the same time it provides talented individuals with an opportunity to enjoy the flexibility to live from their talent anywhere they want.

So, we took it upon ourselves to figure out how to work around them. We are convinced that it is not the air of the bay that makes developers in Silicon Valley more innovative than the ones in Buenos Aires, but the access to opportunity. We are committed to bringing those types of opportunities to talented individuals which has a huge impact on talent retention because, in order to get innovators to innovate having access to the right opportunities can make all the difference.

have of course, a background that leans heavily as you’d expect in software development but what really makes us different is we are also highly versed in complementary areas to software, like Product Design, Experience Design, Project / Product Management and technology libraries that are proven to smooth the development lifecycle and use life of the applications we build, and are flexible enough to build, according to your access to capital or revenue flow. The result is Epica’s process a disciplined implementation of today’s top methodologies that is technology agnostic and is designed to navigate a product from idea, to Technology Capital in the least amount of time without sacrificing quality.

Because when the process IS the constant and you are able to harness the creativity, passion and iconic joie de vivre of cyber nomads in a talent pool of 33 countries throughout LATAM, the possibilities are endless!

Technology Capital

Being a decentralized base of technologists continuously striving for innovation, means we are able to adapt, learn and bring the right developer on a project to project basis, are able to pivot as quickly as the industry does and are always able to integrate a new expert that brings the particular skill you need into the process, if you need a development partner whether it might be:

software web or mobile apps from native multiplatform and PWA’s Software Development for Windows Mac & Linux environments AI Machine learning R&D


We are able to put together the right professionals and integrate them into a proven process to deliver Technology Capital you can lean your startup growth against.

Technology Capital means a code base that is...

We know the solutions we build for you will need to be part of the systems you need to run your business thus, we integrate old product versions, iterate to new versions and migrate, we integrate mobile apps with web applications desktop applications & IoT, we architect cloud solutions in Azure & AW, build APIs from scratch to be integrated with your vendor of choice API’s and external databases, we use service buses and integration services all thinking in terms of building a secure technological environment free of vulnerabilities where your brand peacefully co-exists, your users are happy and their data is always safe.

We understand the Startup dilemma, we excel at helping our clients find the right balance between budget and scalability. From the point of inception, when your codebase is small, the cost is low and the impact on users is minimal, we focus on modularization & micro-services using container tools like docker & kubernetes.

In other words, peace of mind and reduced burn rate.

The Right Fit

So, you’ve been contemplating the idea of nearshore but seems almost impossible to find the right mix of technology, quality code, volume, and price for your early stage StartUp development needs? We know the standard nearshore model is not inherently the right fit for the agility, level of innovation and focus on KPI’s a Startup requires & this is what makes us radically different from other nearshore options: WE SPEAK STARTUP.

Our growth strategy is not based on headcount, we know Startups need their IT investment to stretch and retract according to revenue / investment flow. We aim to become a Nearshore Seed Accelerator & that means the brands we help build today, will help us build the reputation and create the Investment Fund we will need in the future, therefore for us, it is every bit as much about your successful exit as it is for you.

Do you consider yourself an innovator? Would love to work independently, are capable of collaborating with professionals anywhere in the world and look at mobility as a key factor for work-life balance? Epica’s business model takes cues from “direct trade” and runs on a system called ROWE (Results only work environment) which allows you to work anytime, anywhere as long as consistently deliver results sprint by sprint.

After having to move to pursue opportunity, we realized that there’s a lot of people like us, wishing they did not have to move. We decided that being 2019 and all, we needed to bring the right kind of opportunity to talented folks right where they want to live, whether that be the sandy beaches of Florianopolis, Brazil, or wine country in Ensenada, Mexico, allowing them to be happier and more prone to innovation
