Revelo, the largest platform for sourcing, hiring and managing remote tech talent in US time zones, has announced the acquisition of Mexico-based Listopro, the largest marketplace for hiring tech talent from Mexico. With the acquisition of Listopro, Revelo adds another 50,000 vetted tech professionals to the network, making it 300,000 strong, the largest to hire talent in US time zones.
To date, including its series B in Oct 2021, Revelo has raised $33.7M from investors such as Social Capital, FJLabs, Valor Capital Group and the World Bank’s IFC (International Finance Corporation).
Listopro was founded in 2018 and has been growing at 100% year-over-year since it started. It is backed by investors like Magma Partners, Seedstars, Parallel18 Ventures and the founders of Mexican startups, Merama and Kocomo as angel investors.
Despite the recent downturn in the tech industry, the demand for developers and software engineers has continued to grow. The acquisition of Listopro enhances the current demand for talent as companies struggle to find quality developers.
“Our mission at Listopro was always that of providing top talent in Latin America a better way to get matched with amazing job opportunities. By joining forces with Revelo, we are taking a huge step forward in this mission. Thousands of Listopro developers will now be able to get matched with remote opportunities in the US. This will create better liquidity, more successful matches and will help us scale. Moreover, Listopro and Revelo each have their unique secret sauces for user acquisition and operations, which together will help us build the biggest remote talent platform to hire from Latin America”, said Listopro co-founder and CEO Giuseppe Belpiede.
The deal terms of Listopro’s acquisition were not disclosed. Earlier this year, Revelo acquired CeroUno – a Mexican upskilling and mentorship platform for developers – and CTO Talks – a content network focused on software developers in Brazil.
