Our story

Driven by his passion for building web and mobile products, in 2010 our founder, Andrés Max, started Ideaware. We started working with fast-growing startups in Silicon Valley. We started as an agency, but in 2015 we pivoted to a staff augmentation firm working out of Colombia. We’ve hired hundreds of amazing people to work as employees and also staffed our partners with the best talent.

Partners, not clients

We invest in long-term relationships, working with our partners to not only support their hiring needs, but also providing support everyday.

We're transparent

We work with our partners in full transparency, every step of the way we communicate and discuss any issues.

People, not software

We're not an auto-matching software. We listen to your needs, screen, test and bring you only the best candidates that fit your team.

We work from experience

Our team has both the long term experience as well as a huge network of qualified professionals to help you.

Our locations

We work out of four different locations where we have offices with the flexibility of a remote company.


Our main HQ, were it all started here is where we handle operations and team members come and use the space as they see fit.


Where we do most of our business development, but also available for team members to work out of.


A space for local (and nearby) team to come in, chat, drink delicious coffee.


Another space for local and nearby team members to use.

We are our values

We are passionate about creating a calm, inspiring work environment that attracts high-performing talent. We connect that talent with our partners, providing mutual growth opportunities.


Committed to our partners

Your growth is our growth. We focus on long-term relationships.


Culture first

Treating each other well and a good work environment goes a long way.



Everyone on our team steps up to the plate and is here to help.


Be transparent

Work in full trasparency, bring up issues and work together to solve them.


Never stop learning

Always growing, always learning, always improving.



We all work towards our common and personal goals.
