In our previous blog entry, we talked about the different types of approaches to grow software development teams.

At the end, we briefly highlighted the managed dedicated team approach, which is ideal for companies that are looking for a partner that will take ownership of their software product or service with minimal guidance.

On that same note, according to Ken Ballard from The Nerdery:

When you really get down to it, if you’re operating on a budget your best option is to do it right the first time. That’s where I’ve seen the value of having an experienced, mid-sized strategic development partner take a look at your goals and what you’re trying to accomplish. Larger than their smaller competitors, these development shops have the benefit of a wide-range of technologies and strategic expertise so you wind up with the right solution for your needs.

If this is what you’re looking for, ArkusNexus is the right partner for you.

Software development teams

We are is a mid-sized firm headquartered in the city of San Diego. Our development center is located in beautiful Baja California, Mexico, just 21 miles away from Downtown San Diego. For more than 10 years now, we have been developing software solutions for companies within multiple industries in the US and Mexico. But, what makes us different?

Location, location, location: the proximity factor

Being located in the largest bi-national metropolis in the world has its perks for our clients. They can visit us on any given day; all it takes is a 20-minute drive from San Diego Airport. They can also schedule conference calls and IM with their development team within normal business hours.

Also, according to, the proximity to San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco, along with the high immigrant population, gives Baja the advantage of having programmers and technical workers who are not only bilingual, but in some cases even have technical studies in the US.

Some helpful cross-border travel times to consider:

  • San Diego – Tijuana: 20-30 minute drive
  • Los Angeles – Tijuana: 2 hour drive
  • Bay Area – San Diego: 40 minute flight plus 20 minute drive to Tijuana
  • Tijuana – Mexico City: 3 hour flight

Time to think outside the box: our unique model

Our model is a leaner alternative to traditional outsourcing. What’s our approach? Scalable software development teams that ensures predictable results based on a mature process, where we take ownership of our clients’ products or services. This allows us to communicate with their different business areas and stakeholders, so that we can properly manage these dedicated development teams.

All of the above translates into a process that generates results which are perfectly aligned with our clients’ business goals and ultimately have a positive effect on their financial bottom line.
