World Wide Technology (WWT), a company based in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. announced the expansion of its operations in Costa Rica.

The company, which is located in Belén Canton, Heredia Province, opened its first facility in June 2023.

“The acceleration of enterprise AI adoption, paired with greater cybersecurity threats, continues to fuel global demand for transformative technology solutions that lead to game-changing business outcomes,” said Tom Strunk, Costa Rica sponsor and chief financial officer of WWT. “It’s an exciting time to be part of WWT, and our team is thrilled to add Costa Rican talent to the work we do for our customers.”

Currently, they are in the process of hiring 100 new IT and corporate jobs as part of the company's growth. 

According to the firm, the job openings range from entry-level to senior leadership to support various capacities, including finance, legal, human resources, internal IT, project management, sales, services, marketing and global operations. Those interested can apply at the firm career's website.

In recent years, Costa Rica has become an international tech hub for organizations across the globe as more than 400 multinational organizations are now operating in the country, according to the country’s Foreign Investment Promotional Agency.

Furthermore, Costa Rica serves as a hub for 228 service sector companies, with digital technologies experiencing significant growth, authorities added.

Costa Rica's unemployment remains at 7.8%, according to the National Employment Survey. Data recorded from Dec. 2023 to Feb. 2024 shows more than 182,000 people without registered jobs. Of these, 107,000 are men, making up 58% of the unemployed people in the country.

WWT is one of many international firms investing in Costa Rica. Recently, the German-headquartered Brenntag, a chemical and ingredients distribution firm opened its Finance Shared Services Center in the country to provide financial and accounting support for its Americas operations.
