Stryker Will Open a New Site in Costa Rica to Support its Finance Activities in the Americas

NOVEMBER 5th 2018

San José, Costa Rica. November 5, 2018. Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, announced it will open an office in San Jose, Costa Rica, as it creates a hub for finance activities and services.   The facility will be located in the San Antonio Business Park in Heredia, Costa Rica.

In the first phase of hiring, the rapidly growing company plans to fill approximately 90 positions to support general accounting, accounts receivable and accounts payable activities. 
The Minister of Foreign Trade, Dyalá Jiménez said: “Costa Rica’s services sector has become a leader in the region and it is the third largest Latin American exporter of high-value added services. Today, we celebrate Stryker’s establishment in the country as a Med Tech leader. We are proud and satisfied to prove the trust given to our people and to our country. We look forward to working together as allies and generating opportunities for Costa Rica’s well-being.” 

“We are opening an office in Costa Rica due to its strong economic environment, its highly skilled workforce, and its proximity to both our U.S. and Latin American employees and customers,” said Tim Williams, VP of Finance Operations for Stryker. “We know that Costa Rica will help us scale as we continue to grow.”

 “We are looking for qualified candidates that want to work for a global company that improves patient and hospital outcomes every day,” said Williams.  “Our Finance organization is the co-pilot to our business and we need strategic thinkers and process experts to join our team and help Stryker achieve its mission.”

Jorge Sequeira, Managing Director at CINDE, added: “The quality of Costa Rican talent allows companies like Stryker to consolidate its global business growth adding value to their services operations. The opening of this new office is a vote of confidence to Costa Rica and its proven track record, allowing the country to open more quality job opportunities from the services sector that currently employs more than 61.000 Costa Ricans.”

The company will hire candidates with finance and accounting skills, experience in executing finance and accounting processes, and experience working virtually with teams in other countries.
