Rooted in Silicon Valley. Based in Poland.

Founded by a developer who’s seen the Silicon Valley struggle to find talent first-hand — and decided to fix it.

Piotrs founds Sofomo 2010

Established in 2010 after Piotr’s experience working in San Francisco.

A Silicon Valley problem in need of a global solution

Sofomo’s founder Piotr Schumacher got the inspiration for a new kind of offshore development company while working as a developer for a San Francisco-based startup in 2007.

Piotr witnessed first-hand how difficult it was for Silicon Valley tech companies to hire local developers and quickly scale their teams — and the inadequacy of low-value, “sweatshop”-style offshore vendors to meet their needs.

Piotr started Sofomo in 2010 with a big idea: to empower select, innovative companies in Silicon Valley and across the world with top-tier, fully dedicated development teams.

Since Sofomo’s launch, we’ve worked with startups, mid-tier, and enterprise companies. To find out how you could scale your team with top talent, contact us to get the ball rolling.

Leaders you can rely on 24/7

One in Poland, the other in San Francisco — Piotr and Robert are available 24/7 for Sofomo’s partner clients.

We’re tech junkies who love helping innovative companies (big and small) achieve their goals. Away from the office, Piotr is a snowboarding enthusiast who loves the Alps, while Robert can be found trying to survive San Francisco Bay Area’s waves.
