Remote-First Culture: What Is It And How Cheesecake Labs Embraced It?
Caroline Schmitz | Jan 10, 2023
News just in. Cheesecake Labs is thrilled to announce that we were just ranked the #1 web app development company in Latin America by Clutch. This is a massive honor and one that we’re excited to share with our clients.
Read on to learn more about this ranking and what it means for Cheesecake Labs.
For us, one of the most exciting affirmations of the Clutch positioning is that it further evidences Cheesecake Labs’ authority for nearshore development. We’ve always been proud of our nearshore development offer — partnering with companies across the world, but still within the same or similar time zones. But now we’ve got the title of top web app development company in Latin America to support our own beliefs!
Cheesecake Labs can provide quality and timely service to our partners (and future partners!) across those time zones close to Latin America — North America, Europe, etc. — as well as in the country itself. Businesses can partner with Cheesecake Labs knowing that they’re going to get the best of the best when it comes to software design and development services.
To understand why this is such an honor, it’s important to look at how Clutch ranks companies. Below are the criteria that Cheesecake Labs and its competitors were judged on before being granted this ranking.
The first metric used to determine Clutch’s ranking is a business’s ability to deliver. This metric is divided into three different segments, which you can see broken down below.
Understandably, the most heavily-weighted metric that Clutch considers when ranking a company is the references and reviews that a business receives. This is firsthand experience that customers have with that company, making it incredibly valuable data.
Clutch considers factors such as how likely a customer is to recommend a business to their colleagues, how happy they are with their service, and the quality of the deliverables received.
Next, Clutch looks to the clients and experiences of clients with a particular business. They consider how satisfied clients are as well as how the business delivers on complex project demands.
This is done by interviewing past and present clients and reading through case studies from the company. You can check out Cheesecake Labs’ use cases here.
Clutch then looks at the market presence of the business. They want to know how clear the marketing information is, how positive the opinion of the company is, whether or not they’ve received any accolades, if they have a social media presence, and so on.

The second metric used to determine a Clutch ranking is areas of focus. There are one to three areas of focus per company, with each being evaluated with quantitative data.
A Clutch analyst will comb through this data and plot it on a matrix, at which point it is compared to the data of other businesses competing for the ranking. It’s a time-consuming and meticulous process — and one that requires careful consideration.
This makes this metric particularly competitive and therefore an even more impressive win for the entire team here at Cheesecake Labs.
“Cheesecake Labs’ talent is impressive. Their resources are all based in Brazil, and working with Brazilian developers has been a new experience for me. Their work ethic has been unmatched. On top of that, they’re highly educated and serve as experts in the field.”
“I’m based in Switzerland, so collaborating with someone across the Atlantic Ocean isn’t easy when it comes to development. However, the team at Cheesecake Labs is impressively well-connected on different communication systems like Slack, Jira, and video conferences. There were no issues. I was miles away, but it felt like their friendly team was sitting in the same room.”
As proud as we are to be recognized as the best web app development company in Latin America, we couldn’t have done it without all of the wonderful customers, partners, and clients that make Cheesecake Labs what it is. Thank you for your support — you can look forward to more great service from the team as we grow bigger and better as a digital partner.
