The Argentine expert for systems, science and technology is "good, beautiful and inexpensive" due to the impact of the devaluation of beer on wages and the possibilities of online work for foreign companies, according to various entrepreneurs in the sector.
Director of Computer Consulting Company Everis, Pablo PereiroTelam told the agency that the company increased its professional plant at the end of last year from 470 to 600 employees.
In this regard, he said that "we will continue to accept people who want to continue their career in technology, we have enough projects, including exports." These include development and services for banking and industry in Spain and the United States.
The 2019 forecast is "to increase the permanent plant in Buenos Aires and we may need people in internal locations", as in Tucumán.
Given the difficulties in finding trained personnel, he said that "demand is greater than supply, not only in the technology field, everything that is difficult science or engineering".
Lastly, Pereiro pointed out that "the devaluation of the peso has caused a reduction in Argentinian costs, and that's why the Argentine expert is now good, beautiful and cheap".
The director of Faraday Security coincided with this concept, Martín Tartarelli, who explained that the Argentine expert is "good, beautiful and cheap, but only for foreign companies".
"Multinational companies require a lot of talent and have very competitive wages, making it difficult to keep talents in the local context," he added. "On the other hand, there are companies in the United States," he continued, "which provides employees with wages in dollars, which makes the script more complex."
How much do they pay?
Owner of IT Pole Buenos Aires, José María Louzao Andrade, said that "the impact of devaluation on human capital in a recessionary context means that companies that produce for the domestic market can not keep their most qualified sources."
Louzao, the owner of G & L, warned that "more than 10% of assets work in external mode and are charged through cards or payment platforms," which leads to the "exclusion of funds from solidarity systems".
In this regard, he said that these resources "charge between $ 20 and $ 30 per hour, which means that their pay is from $ 120,000 to $ 180,000." If the current pace continues, "risk increases concentration and informality," he said.
"The Argentineans have a profile of skills that make them very attractive to organizations of different cultures," said Alejandro Servide, director of expert groups in Randstad, Argentina.
It does not refer to technical knowledge, but to others such as "versatility, decision making ability, creativity in proposed solutions, management of complex situations, good response in very demanding environments and, in particular, their adaptability to crisis situations."
According to Servide, "Argentina is by its nature resistant" and is looking for an "emergentologist" in uncertain conditions.
He emphasized that migration today leads "a segment of young professionals, people between the ages of 25 and 30, generally without children", sought by proposals from the rest of the world that "combine the development of a career with a wage in a strong currency, and a lot with additions in terms of housing, a car, a health plan, among other benefits.
