Presentation: Culture that Transcends Oceans



7:15pm - 8:05pm

Day of week:



We live in an increasingly global economy, where we are able draw from a group far larger than just local talent to staff our current needs. Total number of jobs outsourced in 2015 was near 2.5 million with over 200K of them being Software Development jobs specifically. Hence we are not just focusing on building an Engineering Culture locally within our NYC and US offices, but increasingly we are faced with a need to translate that culture to an offshore office. In the process we need to get over cultural, technical and physical hurdles. It would be great to work with a similar minded group of people who are facing similar issues working with offshore offices, contracting companies and remote employees.
