San Jose, Costa Rica, Dec. 16, 2020 – San Francisco Bay Area-based software company Autodesk, Inc.(NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced plans to open a Costa Rica-based office in support of business across the Americas.
As a key new node in Autodesk’s network of sales operations across the Americas, the presence in Costa Rica will enable the continued growth of the company business particularly in Latin America.
An initial office location for the first cohort of employees will open in March 2021 in the Cariari section of San Jose. In its early stage, the Costa Rica team will largely be comprised of inside sales professionals. Longer-term, the office is part of a strategy to centralize sales resources to better engage customers in small and mid-size business segments.

“Establishing a presence in Costa Rica is in line with our optimistic view of Latin America. We see great potential and new possibilities for the region and are eager to tap into the incredible talent pool in San Jose,” said Morgan Kirkland, Senior Director in Autodesk’s Americas sales organization.
“The belief in new possibilities is fundamental to who Autodesk is. Our software empowers innovators to design and make a more thriving future. Customers use our software to build more resilient infrastructure, to design more sustainable buildings, to manufacture more energy efficient cars, to reduce waste and pollution on construction sites, and do many other amazing things,” continued Roberto Mikse, Latin America Regional Director for Autodesk.

This technology company found in the country the digital skills required to develop creative processes that support its business strategy. According to data from the OECD in 2019, among its member countries, Costa Rica is the most open for the transaction of digital services, enhancing collaborative production ecosystems and technological convergence, necessary to go one step further in the new knowledge economy.”
