Aquto makes mobile data accessible to the parties involved and increases mobile engagement by bringing the ecosystem of mobile operators, marketers and app publishers together through data sponsorship.

The challenge

Being the leader in sponsored mobile data, Aquto was in need of top talent engineers to work on its cutting-edge platform. Having advanced experience in Scala and state-of-the-art technologies such as Akka and the Lightbend stack was crucial. As a constantly growing company, Aquto also had as a major upcoming challenge to integrate into their system the first mobile operators outside of the US, which included Telcel, Movistar and Telefónica.

The solution

A team of skilled engineers started working side-by-side with Aquto members from all different areas. They provided their expertise on several subjects such as functional programming, reactive patterns, microservices architecture, APIs integration and domain-driven design, among others. They also worked directly with engineers from the different telecommunication companies in the tasks related to the integration of their systems. The relationship with Aquto was also brought closer together through a business trip of the team to its offices in Boston.

Aquto was able to extend its leadership to the Latin America market backed by a solid reactive system and an experienced team.


The value added by the team was a key piece not only to meet Aquto’s business goals but also to evolve and improve its platform at the technical level. Aquto was successful in expanding its operations outside the U.S. and at the same time gained a valuable partner for future endeavors.
