The Austin, Texas-based U.S. company National Instruments (NI) confirmed on Thursday the expansion of its technical support operations in Costa Rica, which will include 170 new hires.
Company recruiters are looking for workers in sales, customer service, marketing and engineering applications, including the areas of mechatronics, electronics and electrical and systems engineering.
Since 2011, NI’s operations center in Costa Rica has provided technical support to customers across the Americas, as well as global support services.
“Exports of value-added services increased from 12.1 percent in 1999 to 49 percent in 2013. This is due to the progress service companies have achieved at their operations in our country, which allows them to offer more sophisticated services,” Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency Director Jorge Sequeira said during a company announcement ceremony. “Costa Rica is becoming more attractive for knowledge-related operations.”
National Instruments facilities are located at the Ultrapark II free zone in Heredia, north of the capital. Candidates interested in applying for a job at NI should send résumés by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
