EPAM Systems, a US-based provider of digital platform engineering and development services, has acquired S4N, a Columbian software development services firm specialising in the design and development of modern software products and enterprise platforms.
The move is a part of EPAM’s global footprint expansion within the Latin American region.
With offices in Colombia, S4N has built software for some of the world’s largest retailers, insurance companies, and airlines specialising in architecting and delivering software distributed systems, data-intensive solutions, as well as CloudOps.
With an existing presence in Mexico, EPAM’s move into Colombia will strengthen its position by combining both engineering experience along with its delivery capability around digital, consulting and experience design.
With the addition of the S4N team, EPAM now employs more than 1,500 IT professionals in LATAM and plans to add several thousand additional jobs over the coming years.
“The acquisition of S4N enables our continued progress in building a more agile, diverse and global delivery organization.
With the addition of hundreds of talented engineers in key LATAM locations, we can deliver enhanced and truly multidisciplinary engagements to our customers in the Americas and around the world.”
said Victor Dvorkin, SVP, Head of Global Delivery at EPAM.
“We’re pleased to join forces with EPAM—as they very much share our company culture and values.
We see this as a new, exciting stage of evolution for our organisation, and together, we’ll have the ability to serve our clients even better, offer exciting new opportunities for our people, and bringing more of the best talent in LATAM to serve EPAM’s customers around the globe,”
said Octavio Echeverri, CEO of S4N.
