Following various announcements of layoffs, closures and businesses relocating their Costa Rican operations, two technology companies this week announced they will expand their staff here.

Fiserv, a U.S. provider of financial and technology services, plans to hire 400 employees in coming months, the company announced in a press release.

In October the company will hire its first 50 workers and then will continue hiring over the next year.

The company is recruiting bilingual professionals and technicians in finances and for various information technology and engineering posts.

Country manager Francisco Alba said the company has more than doubled its staff here in the last three years — from 250 to over 500. “And we intend to double that figure again over the next three years,” he added.

The Wisconsin-based company started operating in Heredia in 2004 and will open new offices in September in the Cartago canton of Tres Ríos.

Recruiters will begin looking for candidates at public and private universities, but interested job-seekers can also apply on the company’s website.
