Press Release

Modus Create Consolidates in Costa Rica and Expands with Virtual Job Opportunities

NOVEMBER 13th 2019

San José, Costa Rica. November 13, 2019. Modus Create, a multinational company within the digital technologies’ industry, has officially established in Costa Rica and plans to triplicate its current workforce by 2020. 

The digital transformation company combines Consulting, Design, and Software Engineering to streamline projects and products of global clients, helping them face the new digital economy. 

The company currently seeks to fill positions with bilingual profiles related to application development, agile project management, systems engineering, UX / CX design and cloud migration capabilities.

Located in Santa Ana, its operations are also carried out virtually outside the Great Metro Area. One of its employees is Braulio Barrera, a software developer for client projects in the United States, who is from Playas del Coco, Guanacaste. From there, he can work from home or go to the office, when needed. Another staff member is Randall González, a database administrator who works from home in Playa Bejuco, and from time to time, attends the central offices site too.

“We celebrate Modus Create’s announcement and are glad that it relies on the quality of our talent, spread throughout the national territory. This commits us to continue improving our country’s competitiveness to generate more jobs in the services sector, which is one of the strategic areas of our economy that represent almost half of our exports,” said Mrs. Dyalá Jiménez, Minister of Foreign Trade.

Patrick Sheridan, co-founder and Managing Partner of Modus Create, said: “Costa Rica is recognized as a cradle of technology talent. Consistently, the country has been ranked as one of the most promising destinations for service centers and is also known as the Silicon Valley of Latin America. Starting 2019, we opened our operation in Costa Rica and quickly added strategic personnel to serve our clients, as well as a regional management team contributing to the business community, even developing an interactive event in our offices a few weeks ago. We believe that there is great potential for our expansion in Costa Rica, our clients are increasingly looking for software and engineering that facilitate their digital transformation.”

Modus Create’s Director of Engineering and Manager for Latin America, José Pablo Quesada, added that: “Modus Create and its clients believe in the Costa Rican talent and their learning capacity, which was the main factor to start operations. The penetration of broadband connections, bilingualism, political and social stability also weighed in our decision to establish in the country and develop long-term plans.”

Jorge Sequeira Picado, CINDE’s Managing Director, said: “Virtualizing jobs allows services companies to hire quality human talent outside the Central Valley, as Modus Create already does. In 2018, CINDE reported that 850 jobs were created outside the Great Metro Area, 600 of them in virtualized mode. During this and next year, Modus Create will create new job positions for talented Costa Ricans who want to apply their knowledge in the digital technology sector.” 

Currently, the company has 15 employees in Costa Rica, and plans to close 2019 with approximately 25. Next year, it plans to reach 70 employees, as part of its expansion.
