The company continues to develop despite the Covid-19 crisis. Its client portfolio already includes Walmart in the US and companies from the Tesla mutual fund. This year alone it added 20 new clients.
The crisis has had positive effects on some industries, especially those supported by the digital economy.

At the beginning of the current pandemic, Applaudo Studios made the decision to work 100% remotely, a modality that it will maintain indefinitely, which allows it to keep operations 100% active and without interruptions.
“Our first task was to protect the health of all the members of our work teams, protecting their physical integrity was paramount. We went to work 100% remote before the preventive quarantine was instituted. Then, we made sure to stay 100% from home, thank God we were able to execute both premises ” company representatives stated.
The strategy allowed them to sustain their growth plan and capitalize on opportunities. In the midst of the pandemic, the technology company capitalized on this demand for services and hired more than 100 additional employees.
“Even though we have had clients impacted in the midst of the pandemic, we have been able to grow with clients that we already had, and in addition we have closed contracts with more than 20 additional clients in 2020. Thank God, we have the privilege of working with companies from like Bain & Company, Walmart USA, The Miami Heat, companies from the Tesla investment fund, which continue to lead the way in digital matters.
All contracts are for the 100% remote work modality, from its profiling processes, interviews, tests and entry to the company.
We will continue with a highly aggressive expansion plan. Not only have we created more than 100 permanent jobs in the midst of the pandemic, we currently have more than 10 types of positions open that allow us to continue creating job opportunities at an accelerated pace. We are going to create more than 100 additional positions in the coming months, here in El Salvador ” company representatives said.
