E&N spoke with Maurizio Angeleone, CEO of DigitalReef, and explained that the company has found in Nicaragua a great place to recruit talented and brilliant engineers directly from universities as well as from the market. It is established in a BPO free zone in Nicaragua, which allows investing in Nicaragua and employing many developers and growing the team very quickly.
Why invest in Nicaragua?
DigitalReef has a global team of engineers working on its advanced AdTech and MarTech platforms that are used by the main mobile operators in América Móvil, including América Móvil (Telcel, Claro) VIVO, Entel, as well as large application publishers such as American, B2W, etc.
The team spans several countries and continents, including the United States (Dallas, Miami), Brazil (Sao Paulo), Nicaragua (Managua), and India (Bangalore, Hyderabad).
The DigitalReef team based in Nicaragua is essential to the regional team. We have found that Nicaragua is a perfect place to recruit talent to work in our organization because there are very strong universities that graduate engineers with a desire to learn and immerse themselves in R&D for the world of technology.
Having engineers closer to our customer base and speaking the same language is a huge benefit to the company.

What key tips can you give to create a high-impact campaign?
1. Consider your audience – who and how are they? What kind of products are they looking for? What kind of problem is the product solving?
2. Consider the medium – Not every medium or social network works for every type of audience. Consider whether your audience wants to be reached via Instagram, LinkedIn, or TikTok – all of which have a different user base.
3. Consider the product – Just because a company sells a product, it does not mean that it is relevant to the audience. To create a high-impact campaign, you have to consider the consumer’s problem and how this new product is going to save everyone’s life through more insights, better functions, process agility, etc.
