At Wonderlabs.lk, our managers have been building and managing high performance software development teams across the world for the last 10 years. When we first started hiring developers in Sri Lanka, we were completely shocked that not more Singapore and Hong Kong companies have not hired more software engineers from Sri Lanka.
As it is often said, the proof is in the pudding. The same goes for software developers. Did you know that Sri Lankan software developers are behind many of the world’s top capital market softwares? These include trading platforms for equities, derivatives, debt, commodities, forex, structured products and exchange-traded funds. Sri Lankan software developers are the ones who are powering the London Stock Exchange, the Italian Stock Exchange, the Oslo Stock Exchange (Norway), the London Metal Exchange (which by the way, is the world’s largest trading exchange for metals), among many others.
Why this matters for you? You’re thinking about potentially hiring devs from Sri Lanka, or perhaps you’re thinking of building a software engineering team in Sri Lanka.
We know that Sri Lankan Software Developers can make build amazing software products. Capital Markets Software requires efficiency at the code and server layers. Only bug-free code that has been rigorously tested make the cut.
The internal standards that produce great software is embedded into the experience of the developers who work on these applications. These software engineers move onto other companies and bring those experiences with them. It’s “Brain circulation”.
To put it directly, these devs could be working for you.
Now, especially if you’ve got a Fin-Tech company, you might really want to give this some serious consideration!
