GoScale, a technology consulting and engineering company that enables software delivery automation, has acquired artificial intelligence-powered technology talent community Indiez in a bid to boost its remote hiring division.

Financial specifics of the deal were not disclosed.

“Indiez together with GoScale is going to disrupt the way customers hire and work with remote engineers. Indiez will be able to cater to a wide variety of customers and meet the growing market demands faster and better,” Indiez founder and CEO Nitesh Agrawal said in a statement.

Nitesh will continue to work with GoScale to scale Indiez.

GoScale builds software services engine to automate product development for other companies. It also has offshoots that cater to the staffing needs of companies for technology-based positions with talent communities TalScale and CrewScale.

“Remote is a game changer for the way we work. There is a lag in adoption though because of the demand and supply gap in talent. We want to close the gap by matchmaking companies with the right talent enabling them to ride the remote wave,” Indiez CEO Bharat said.

Founded in 2019, CrewScale’s business will benefit from the acquisition of Indiez since it will boost its reach in the remote sphere. The move also increases the company’s operational capabilities in the United States, to aid in competition against the likes of Silicon Valley-based TopTal, the statement added.

GoScale has been profitable since its inception and its clients include e-commerce companies Amazon and Tokopedia, ride-hailing transport services Uber, Grab, Ola, and food delivery platform Swiggy.

Founded in 2016, Indiez has been profitable since its operations. It was bootstrapped for a year before raising $500,000 in seed funding. Global companies such as Domino’s Pizza, Uber and Aditya Birla Group are some of its customers. 

Post-deal, Indiez and CrewScale now have over 300 customers. Collectively, the talent community now has 16,000 developers, designers, and product managers across 50 countries.
