I did something that most people think impossible: I changed careers!
If you are currently a student or you chose a college degree not related to Software Development, this is your chance to turn back.

We have awesome facilities, the best equipment, and pay higher salaries than the average. All 250 Nearsoftians have an unlimited budget for books, a kitchen full of food, and enjoy offsites, called Team Building Weeks, twice a year, oftentimes in fancy places, like Cancun.
