TE Connectivity, an American-Swiss technology company that designs and manufactures connectors and sensors for several industries will hire more employees for its medical manufacturing plant located in Heredia Province, as well as for its financial services center located in San José Province.

According to the firm, this local growth comes from moving several of its company projects, previously headquartered elsewhere, to its Costa Rica location site. As demonstrated during the pandemic's most critical months and throughout 2020, the company came to rely on Costa Rican operations for continuity of business in services and manufacturing.

“Costa Rica is a fundamental part of TE Medical's growth strategy, for multiple reasons," Enrique Saborío, General Manager of TE Connectivity Costa Rica said. "To begin, several of our clients already have operations of significant magnitude in the country; this allows us to work more closely with each of them and to establish a more agile and rapid supply chain in response to business needs."

According to Saborío, the firm establishing a Medical Cluster in Costa Rica has helped influence their strategic priorities, in order to facilitate operations and fuel future growth for TE Connectivity in the country.
"Furthermore, from a talent point of view, Costa Rica offers a solid line of well-prepared human resources who can adapt quickly to the needs of the industry, in the professional, technical, and operational fields,” Saborío said.
Currently, the company is looking for professionals in the fields of engineering and finance, as well as production operators and personnel with technical training in all the aforementioned areas. Those interested in applying for a position with TE Connectivity may do so via email at or by visiting the company’s Careers website.

Just in 2020, there were 81 investment projects that were either inaugurated or reinvested in Costa Rica, a record number that, in turn, created almost 20,000 jobs, according to the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency, CINDE.

However, despite the numbers released by the authorities, unemployment is a big issue in Costa Rica. The National Employment Survey shows an unemployment rate of 17.7%, meaning there are approximately more than 430,500 people without registered jobs in the country from March to May 2021.

TE Connectivity is the fourth international company announcing an increase in its operations in Costa Rica this month.

Last week Avionyx, a U.S. company with operations in Costa Rica since 2005, announced that they will hire 50 more employees in the upcoming months, to meet the growing demand for the development of aircraft software.

Also, Wind River, a California-based global firm delivering software for intelligent systems, announced that it continues to expand its services from Costa Rica to the world, specifically, in the cloud and Artificial Intelligence, AI.

As well as Nova Milan, which opened its first center in Alajuela Province with an initial investment of $1.1 million to produce sustainable fabrics and bioplastics from organic plant waste such as from a banana, coconut, cassava and pineapple.

How could Costa Rica better outreach to their unemployed community about job opportunities in the country?
