The Boston, Massachusetts-headquartered tech company, OnProcess, announced the company’s expansion with the opening of a new office at Ultrapark Industrial Free Zone located in Heredia Province.

According to the firm, it invested $5 million to power its growth plans in the country, creating 120 new jobs over the last two months and planning to expand its local headcount by 20% until the end of 2023.

"Our strategic expansion in Costa Rica aligns with our long-term growth strategy and plans to increase our presence in key markets," said Oliver Lemanski, CEO of OnProcess. "Innovation is in our DNA, and we believe that by leveraging the expertise of the local workforce, we can deliver exceptional service and increased shareholder value." 

Costa Rica is the ideal location to provide company key services to the US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific regions, Lemanski said.

The firm opened operations in Costa Rica in 2015 and currently has 300 employees. They are actively hiring for positions in business support functions, digital services, and global product management as well as highly qualified experts in supply chain administration and logistics processes that provide support to clients in the technology, communications, and transportation industries worldwide. Those interested in an open position should visit the firm careers website.

Even though new businesses are creating jobs, unemployment remains at 9.6%, according to the National Employment Survey. 

Data recorded from May to June 2023 shows more than 225,000 people without registered jobs. Of these, 116,000 are men, making up 51% of the unemployed people in the country.

OnProcess is one of many U.S. firms investing in Costa Rica. This week, the Minnesota-headquartered company, Intricon, a medical devices producer, announced the opening of its operations in Costa Rica.

According to a recent report by the U.S. Department of State, Costa Rica is considered to be an excellent choice for foreign investors.
