American technology firm Neustar, Inc. will bolster operations in Costa Rica, adding 50 engineers to its payroll.
The Sterling, Virginia-based company says it is looking for people with STEM-related computer and information services (IS) skills for positions such as database administrators, software and system engineers, system administrators, and technical managers.
“Hiring top technical and computer-skilled talent is a key priority. Since 2011, we have operated an office in Costa Rica and our experience has proven the market has a deep pool of strong, well-qualified tech talent,” said Peter Burke, Neustar Senior Vice President of Engineering and Operations.
Neustar set up a unit in the Central American country for data entry processes, but over the years its activities have been expanded to more sophisticated data analysis, product support, and software engineering.
The local team today includes software engineers, data analysts, data editors, product support engineers, and call center agents.
Employees at its Costa Rican office support Neustar’s OneID system, the foundation of its marketing, risk, digital defense and performance, and communications products and solutions.
“We are excited to expand our Costa Rica presence with candidates that get to design and develop new products and features as well as support and enhance existing ones,” said Bryan Castillo, Neustar General Manager & Director, Data Support in Costa Rica. “We have a number of upcoming events designed to bring us together with top local talent such as our participation in the Costa Rican Investment Promotions Agency (CINDE) job fair.”
