Softtek Costa Rica to Hire 60 People in the First Semester of this Year

  • Hires will be working from home. 
  • Jobs will be offered during the company’s virtual fair this week.
San José, Costa Rica. March 22, 2021. The digital technology company Softtek has announced that it will be hiring 60 people in the next few months due to the growth of its operations in Costa Rica.
Hiring will take place this week during a virtual fair to be held by the company. It will primarily be looking for candidates with experience as .net developers and automation engineers. Intermediate English will be required for some positions and advanced English for others.
According to Foreign Trade Minister Andrés Valenciano, “in recent years, our country has become an important partner for service companies. Today Costa Rica is an intensive knowledge economy that exports twice as many services as the average number for OECD countries. Companies like Softtek continue to grow thanks that we have proven to be resilient to the ups and downs of the global economy. This vote of confidence in our country is a challenge for us to continue working on strengthening our investment climate so that more companies like this will look to Costa Rica for setting up their operations.”

Andrey Meléndez, Softtek site leader, commented that “we came to Costa Rica 12 years ago and are extremely happy to be developing the human talent we’ve found in this country. Our main goal is the development of our employees so that they can not only work but also achieve their career with us.
“During 2020, Softtek expanded its payroll considerably, and this year, we are focused on continuing this growth. Our customers are information technology and service companies. We will be offering attractive benefit and development plans so that our employees can pursue a professional career within the company.”
“Costa Rica’s human talent has demonstrated the resilience needed for meeting the needs of industry 4.0, even in times of pandemic, enabling the country to provide a home for 16 of the top 100 global technology leaders. Softtek has opened a new window of opportunity to many Costa Ricans for formal jobs and personal development in multinational firms, which at the 2020 close had created 19,806 jobs”, noted CINDE Managing Director, Jorge Sequeira.
Those interested in applying for one of these jobs should email their resumes to or enter the platform

The company is located on Paseo de las Flores in Heredia. Interviews will be conducted virtually, and the company will only contact persons who apply during this week for one of the job openings.
