The technology company Patagonian, launched a program that provides temporary or permanent settlement facilities to computer professionals who wish to settle in the south of the country in search of a “more natural life with the best quality of life index in the country” “in the Alto Valle of the Río Negro and the area close to the Andes Mountains.

The company’s human capital program consists of two modalities: the “temporary” stay, which allows exploring the job opportunity between 15 days to a month before making the decision to file. And the “Relocation”, which implies the necessary facilities for the permanent stay of the applicant and her family group, such as the insertion of the boys in the school.
