Since its founding in 2008 and early expansion into Brazil, Avenue Code has opened offices in Canada, Northern Europe, and now Portugal to strategically serve its diverse global client base.

Avenue Code, the leading software consultancy for end-to-end digital evolution solutions, announced the recent opening of its new delivery center in Portugal. Since launching its U.S. operations in 2008, Avenue Code has grown to include 50 countries, 200+ cities, and 1,500+ team members globally, earning its reputation by partnering with enterprise organizations and Fortune 100 companies to accelerate digital innovation across industries. Headquartered in San Francisco, Avenue Code operates delivery centers in Brazil, Canada, Northern Europe, and now Portugal.

Portugal Selected as Strategic Delivery Hub

Leveraging its extensive presence in Brazil’s metropolises of Belo Horizonte (MG) and São Paulo (SP), Avenue Code is approaching the Portuguese technology scene by promoting cultural exchange, one of its talent acquisition cornerstones. 

Aware that Portugal has become one of the strongest technology hubs on the continent, the firm expects to collaborate with companies within the Portuguese digital transformation mindset, offering services in cloud migration, virtual experience, design, agile transformation, solution architecture, delivery infrastructure, data and machine learning, mobile experience, and more. Adding a delivery center in Portugal enables Avenue Code to strategically expand its services for European clients across verticals.

Avenue Code’s Founder and Chief Strategy Officer Zeo Solomon stated that the executive team selected Portugal as its newest delivery center for multiple reasons: “Portugal enjoys a high ranking on the quality of life index. Its government's visa schemes and incentives for entrepreneurs have attracted top talent from around the globe.” 

Chairman and CEO of AICEP (Portuguese Trade & Investment Agency), Luís Castro Henriques, welcomes the company to Portugal's thriving tech ecosystem. He highlights the potential for growth and collaboration that this brings. "We are delighted to welcome Avenue Code to Portugal, another fast-growing tech company joining several others that have recently arrived from the USA. Once again, it recognizes our competitive talent pool, open and easy business environment, and the result of Portugal’s investment in creating attractive and competitive conditions for a highly demanding tech ecosystem. We are very happy that investment from leading and innovative companies is coming to Portugal from all over the world", said Henriques.

Avenue Code at the Portugal Economic Forum 2022

Last year, the company was present at the Portugal Economic Forum 2022 in New York, U.S.A., accompanied by other firms that are successfully operating in Portugal, in addition to representatives of the Portuguese government. Rodrigo Ragil, Global Legal Director at Avenue Code, says that the qualified workforce, the proven market stability, and the talent mobility programs are instrumental for sustainable growth. "In the last few years, Portugal invested in several programs in order to play a greater role in the tech scene and to create a welcoming environment for businesses to flourish. There is a solid ecosystem with renowned universities, incredible talent, and an open dialogue with the government. This ecosystem is supported by a modern regulatory framework where you are able to set up a company within less than 24 hours and where you can relocate top talent to Portugal within 45 days under the TechVisa Program. In a competitive and dynamic market like IT, it is paramount to be efficient with our processes and effective with our value proposition. Portugal allows us to work with high standards for our clients, employees, and community.”

Avenue Code's vision is to be the premier end-to-end solutions provider for digital transformation, drawing on innovative best practices and market-leading technologies to create tangible results for clients.
