March 22, 2022. San José, Costa Rica. Konrad Group
, a Canadian company and leader in the technology
industry, has announced the opening of their second Costa Rican office. The multinational now offers two work locations on both sides of San José, each with the same vibrant and energetic company culture that has characterized Konrad since the company launched its Costa Rican operations.
Konrad currently manages an office in Tres Ríos de La Unión, at the Terra Campus Corporativo Office Center, as well as its new location in Escazu’s Plaza Tempo Office Center. With this expansion, they plan to create 100 new jobs for residents of the Greater Metropolitan Area.
Konrad Group seeks computer science professionals, computer engineers, software developers, and programmers, with advanced English. They also welcome advanced students and recent graduates in these areas, as they begin their careers in the industry.
Hooman Bahador, the President and Co-founder of Konrad, commented, “Over the past nine years, we have witnessed tremendous growth in our Costa Rican operations and, with the opening of this new office, we double down our efforts to build a world-class technology team here in San José.”
The company provides strategy, design and technology services for global brands, such as Kia, Spotify, McDonalds, Coca Cola, PayPal, and Uber.
Andrés Valenciano, the Minister of Foreign Trade, commented: “Konrad Group’s sustained growth over the past nine years shows that they have found in Costa Rica the skills required to not only provide solutions for their clients in the software development industry but also the opportunity to diversify and renew their business. We are pleased to know that companies continue to trust in Costa Rica and our human talent, as they in turn create new employment opportunities, which are important components of our economy’s development.” In addition, he commented: "We celebrate the opportunity that the company offers to young recent graduates in these areas, so that they can start their careers in a fundamental industry that has revolutionized the way we do business."
Jorge Sequeira, the Managing Director of CINDE
, congratulated the company on its growth and expanded presence in Costa Rica, highlighting that "Konrad Group’s performance strengthens Costa Rica’s good name in terms of our investment climate, technology development, and the availability of top talent. In the last year, just our Services Sector
, to which this type of company belongs, offered formal and quality employment to more than 101,000 people. This dynamism goes hand in hand with good performance for the Sector’s knowledge exports, which reached USD $6.451 billion in 2021.
The company was established in Costa Rica nine years ago and has since shown strong growth, which has led to expanding its operations and betting on Costa Rican talent, who have proven to possess the knowledge and skills necessary to carry out these world-class projects.
According to Marco Fernández, General Manager and Vice President of Konrad Costa Rica, “Our Escazú office, paired with the Tres Ríos office, makes us a very attractive option for candidates regardless of their location. We are moving to a hybrid work model as we reopen our offices. Our offices will be an excellent space for people to come together, collaborate, and socialize with their colleagues.”
The company is actively hiring new employees in positions related to software development and quality assurance; these new hires will reap the benefits of the company’s current hybrid work model. Interested parties may apply at https://www.konrad.com/careers/san-jose
