Take Digital Innovation to the Next Level with Hypernova Labs


BERLIN, Germany — Meet Hypernova Labs, the latest addition to Pangea’s trusted global network of partners. This Latin American software development lab effectively transforms ideas into digital solutions, backed by highly trained and committed personnel. Need help with your next project? Put on your lab coat, and step into HyperNova Labs to explore the possibilities!

Conducting Innovative Tech Experiments Since 2013

Hypernova Labs was born in 2013 with the aim of simplifying technology problems for a range of companies. Fast-forward to 2021 and numerous milestones later, they are accomplishing their mission of becoming one of the best software developers in the region ­– having earned their stripes working with Cochez, Ralph Lauren, and Club Activo. From their humble beginnings as a dynamic duo of tech specialists, Hypernova Labs has evolved into a fully-fledged IT provider across Central America, Colombia, and Panama.

Hypernova Labs’ HQ in Panama City, houses a thriving hub of software developers who glide seamlessly between web, mobile app, and product development; cloud services; and web systems solutions. But don’t be fooled by the glossy, high-tech exterior: at their core, Hypernova Labs’ values of honesty, responsibility, trust, honor, and family are decidedly human-centered. As CEO Axel De Leon illustrates, their approachable modus operandi extends to their clients:

Our vision is to be able to simplify the technology problems of each company. Make their concern, ours. That way we can help them and give them the tranquility they are looking for. Our work is our letter of introduction, for this reason, we are at our best disposal to give you the solution you are looking for.”

We were thrilled to welcome this Latin American powerhouse to the Pangea family. Read on to discover what makes Hypernova Labs such an ideal and trustworthy partner, certified by us with a Pangea Overall Score of 8.1/10.0.

The Winning Formula

Hypernova Labs attracts some of the region’s best talents, known for their deep software expertise. As a testament to this, their diverse team of 50+ people hails from 12 countries; speaks four languages, and is not limited to tech scientists and engineers. You’ll find math geniuses, standup comedians, crossfit trainers, activists, competitive motorcyclists, and keen sportsmen who even started their own company soccer team.

Account Executive Recruit Ana Cristina Arias sums up the qualities of this multi-talented bunch:

“The team here is supportive, friendly, flexible, and what I consider to be the most important quality: they are all available to help and teach whenever someone needs it. It truly is an environment that fosters growth and makes you believe in yourself.”

Hypernova Labs’ reputation in Panama as an exceptional place to work is totally well-founded, as seen from their investment in employees — starting from a competitive salary and performance bonuses; through to high-speed internet and the latest tech gear of choice (aka a software professional’s lifeblood!).

Teamwork, professional growth, and personal development are the pillars of company culture. With a strong emphasis on learning and growing, much of the company’s budget is allocated towards courses (including English language certifications), reading, and work materials. The team has access to proprietary training systems and mentors on a variety of leading technologies.

Hypernova Labs’ winning formula clearly produces a positive chemical reaction — securing an average employee retention rate of 65%, and resulting in a Team Health Score of 7.8/10.0. In this compound, the winning elements are culture and personal growth (both rated 8.2/10.0) and management rapport (8.1/10.0).

But what truly stands out is their employee’s commitment and responsibility to their clients. With average seniority of 4.1 years, they are more than capable of tackling the challenging development needs of Silicon Valleys’s most demanding firms. This unit will work tirelessly to help you build your own company, and always with a collaborative and friendly approach.

Full Stack Developer Lucas Cabrales, who joined in 2016, shares:

“Here at Hypernova Labs, our knowledge is composite, we all complement each other in every field and resource. There is always someone that knows something that will help you overcome any obstacles you might encounter.”

Recent recruit and front-end developer Alek Rutherford also personifies the company’s can-do attitude:

“I have had the opportunity to work on several projects, which have shown me that it is fundamental to be flexible with the different frameworks that one works. Previously, I preferred to be in my comfort zone and work with what I know, but thanks to the opportunities that have been presented to me, I have been able to learn new technologies and work methodologies that will be very useful in the rest of my professional life.”

In Hypernova Labs’ periodic table of elements, tech expertise scores highly, leading to a chart-topping 10.0/10.0 in Pangea’s Client Insight Score! Their UI / UX Design score is a whopping 9.3/10.0 — resulting in an overall score of 8.4/10.0.

We asked some of the enterprises and corporations that work with Hypernova Labs—particularly those in the building materials industry — to enlighten us. How has the team reached and maintained equilibrium with their clients, resulting in excellent customer satisfaction?

The CTO of Ralph Lauren Latin America, Julio Arrocha, credits the company for playing a pivotal role in digitizing an esteemed, global household brand:

They played a very important role in our digital transformation, they supported us a lot with innovation in the order-taking processes for the Wholesale business [MOU1] in Latam. ”

Raul Ramsay, VP of Technology of Club Activo 20–30 Panama, shines the spotlight on the team’s outstanding approach to client relations and emotional intelligence:

”Hypernova Labs is a very client-oriented and experienced service provider. We have a very pleasant experience working with them making our projects a reality. I would also highlight their availability and openness to overcome challenges.”

Last but not least, another client has found a real asset in Hypernova Labs , and a long-term partner to spur their innovation:

”We have worked on several projects with Hypernova Labs during the last couple of years. They have finished all the projects, always meeting or exceeding our expectations. We plan on working with them as long as we keep innovating in our company. ”
