Innovation is at the heart of our culture, so it is critical that each and every Glober be an innovator.
In addition to offering a flexible and collaborative work environment, we also actively seek to build the capabilities required to sustain innovation through several ongoing processes and initiatives including:
We invite programmers, designers and engineers from inside and outside of Globant to closely collaborate on a technology challenge. Our hackathons are typically focused on a particular programming language, software technology or practice. Hackathons provide attendees the opportunity to learn, try out new ideas and collaborate with other people in a highly energized, idea-generative environment.
To help Globers stay ahead of the technology curve, we provide them with the freedom to explore and test new ideas and technologies in our Globant Labs — such as robotics, bioinformatics, virtual worlds, tangible interfaces and augmented reality that could eventually be useful to our existing and prospective clients.
We encourage Globers to participate in flip-thinking events. These are open gatherings on topics related to creativity, innovation and technology to which we invite thought-leaders from the sciences, arts, and technology industries. Flip-thinking contributes to Globers’ ability to think intuitively and creatively when solving problems.
At the outset of a client project, we frequently crowdsource ideas by organizing an ideation session to solve our client’s needs. We typically open ideation sessions to all Globers to maximize idea generation and capture the technology expertise found in each of our Studios. Our ideation sessions help break down silos, facilitate the sharing of knowledge and insights, and stimulate innovative thinking.
Our Premier League is an elite team of Globers whose mission is to foster innovation by cross-pollinating their deep knowledge of emerging technologies and related market trends across and between our Studios. Our Premier League is comprised of our senior most subject matter experts who are recognized as ‘‘gurus’’ in their respective domains of expertise. Approximately one percent of Globers are members of our Premier League.
