Wind River Expands Global Presence with Costa Rica Operations

MAY 29th 2019

  • Leading Software Provider’s New San José Office Houses Customer Support, Engineering, Finance, and Tech Support

SAN JOSÉ, COSTA RICA – May 29, 2019 Wind River®, a leader in delivering software to critical infrastructure, announced it has expanded its global presence with operations and an established site in Costa Rica.
The company’s new San José office is located in Oficentro Mediterráneo, which belongs to the real estate investment fund Los Crestones, from Improsa SAFI. It has more than 40 collaborators working in customer support, engineering, finance, and tech support.

“Wind River’s decision to open an office in Costa Rica was based on its great economic climate and nascent technology sector; it’s also a place where we know our company culture can thrive,” said Jim Douglas, Wind River president and chief executive officer. "Costa Rica has proven to have a deep pool of world-class tech talent, and we’re excited to build a strong foundation there with the high-impact team we have in place.”

 “We congratulate Wind River for this new investment project that will create new jobs. The expansion of companies established in Costa Rica reaffirms their trust in our country and our strategic position within the value chain,” said Costa Rica’s Minister of Foreign Trade, Dyalá Jiménez. 

For nearly four decades, Wind River has helped the world’s leading brands power generation after generation of the safest, most secure devices in the world. 

The Managing Director of the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE), Jorge Sequeira, expressed that: “Wind River belongs to Costa Rica’s most dynamic group: the digital technologies sector. From March 2018-2019, it increased 3.4% and represented 44% of the country’s exports in 2018, which is twice as much of the 23% global average.”

The company’s software runs the computing systems of the most important critical infrastructure and is advancing the evolution from automated devices to autonomous systems across a diverse range of use cases — from collaborative robots to commercial and military drones, connected cars to the connected factory floor — as well as the intelligent communication networks that support these applications.
