Hiring for North American Startups in Latin America

Hiring for North American Startups in Latin America - Remote Resources - Dynamite Jobs

This blog has been originally published on the Remote First Recruiting site

So you’re a SaaS or startup founder from North America and you’ve heard all about the Latin America (LATAM) hiring trends, how it’s a hub for remote hiring, how you can hire talent for a fraction of the price of their U.S. counterparts and save up to 70% of overhead costs, how easy it is to find great remote team members with U.S. company experience, etc. 

And it’s got you thinking about it.

But you’re still wondering how to find the right talent without spending hours sifting through irrelavent applications, conducting interviews, and still a bit on the fence about the whole LATAM bandwagon. 

Fair enough. Hiring the right team members for your startup matters. Each role is valuable and you don’t necessarily have the luxury of a mis-hire. Too much time, resources, and starting over with hiring just isn’t in the cards for you.

At Remote First Recruiting, we’ve helped many founders like you make smart hires. 300+ to get a bit more specific. They run SaaS, e-commerce, and agency startups around the globe (many in North America). Many of those hires have been in Latin America.
