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.

According to the company, it will increase its headcount by 20% throughout the remainder of 2021. Since establishing its presence in Pavas Canton, San José Province in 2018, the company’s footprint has seen triple-digit growth.

The company recently introduced Wind River Studio, a cloud-native platform for the development, deployment, operations, and servicing of mission-critical intelligent systems at the edge where security, safety, and reliability are required. With this new product, Wind River’s presence in Costa Rica has seen accelerated growth as it expands its focus in areas such as cloud and AI, they said.

“In order to thrive in a digital- and AI-first world, companies are accelerating their digital transformation plans from years to months. Wind River is committed to realizing the digital future of our customers across the industries we serve,” Kevin Dallas, Wind River president and CEO said.
According to Dallas, the firm is the first and only of its kind to deliver one unified environment for mission-critical intelligent systems across the full product lifecycle. "This new platform offers dramatic improvements in productivity, agility, and time-to-market, with seamless technology integration that includes system-level cloud compute, data analytics, system level security, 5G, and AI/ML," he said.

Studio cloud-native infrastructure software and analytics capabilities address service providers’ complex needs surrounding deployment and management of a physically distributed ultra-low latency, cloud-native infrastructure. These technologies are deployed in Verizon’s 5G network and enabled the world’s first end-to-end fully virtualized 5G data session.

According to the Minister of Foreign Trade, technology has helped Costa Rica join an industry that moves $5.2 trillion throughout the world. 

However, despite the extraordinary numbers released by the authorities, 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.

Recently a Tokyo-based medical technology company announced that it will open a modern medical device manufacturing facility, and will hire up to 700 people in Costa Rica.
