Recently, they officiated their partnership agreement with the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship (MODEE) as their policy support arm, pinning their hopes on accessing and utilizing untapped talent pools locally and regionally.

Founded in 2019 and previously known as "Ibtikar Technologies", the Saudi Arabia-based startup company, Squadio offers an HR solution for tech companies in the MENA region.

Looking to establish new connections and expand further in the region, Squadio joined forces with Parachute16, a Jordanian-Saudi startup company, to create a tech kitchen and hub that accommodates hiring 1,000 remote tech talents to serve and grow from Jordan.

Squadio is a Saudi Team as a Service platform specializing in Tech team employment and management.

parachute16 was founded in 2016 and is an Impact Design House specializing in entrepreneurship and innovation and offering three primary services including building and delivering hybrid accelerators, incubators, and tech hubs, designing and providing hybrid capacity-building programs, and offering hybrid ecosystem and community activation.

The partnership kick-started with the support of the Ministry of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship, Social Security Corporation, Bank Al-Etihad, Al-Hussein Technical University, the Crown Prince Foundation, and more. The partnership also aims to spur job creation and increase Jordan’s competitiveness as a regional hub for the export of IT and tech service.

Squadio and Parachute16's mission is to further create remote work opportunities for Jordanians, given their digital literacy, tech-enabled skills, and potential to consolidate Jordan’s position as a competitive ICT services export hub in the Middle East.
They aim to achieve this by hiring full-timers, part-timers, and freelancers in collaboration with private sector companies and government sector entities in Jordan to serve the MENA region from local and regional destinations.
