About Imagemaker
Imagemaker began operations in 1999 as a digital marketing agency. However, faced with the rampant growth of the digital world and web pages, in 2004 it merged with the company Dcode and launched its trajectory in the technology field, with a focus on digitizing and optimizing businesses through the use of high-level innovative tools, totaling more 3,000 completed projects.
In 2017, Lionel Olavarría assumed the role of CEO, integrating agility and a powerful corporate culture as part of the company’s work philosophy, in which each team member self-identifies as a maker, thus sharing the same values of passion, nobility, and improvement.
In 2019, Imagemaker began its globalization process, opening a market in four countries in less than two years and tripling its number of employees in the Americas.
