Software company TradeStation Global Services expands Costa Rica operation

November 10, 2015

TradeStation Global Services, a software development and maintenance company, confirmed the expansion of its operation in Costa Rica with new facilities at Ultrapark 1 industrial park in Heredia province and the doubling of its local staff.

The company will boost the number of employees from 60 to 120. It is now hiring software development professionals with experience in the areas of C++ and .Net programming. It also is looking for systems engineers, test engineers and automation specialists.

President and COO Enrique Pizzi said the company’s continued growth comes thanks to hard work and professionalism by its Tico team.

Costa Rican employees “are the primary reason we keep investing in Costa Rica,” he said. “Our operations here are a key part of our global vision, and we are confident of a bright future for our company and particularly for our future operations in Costa Rica.”

The Heredia software development center launched operations in 2012 and was the company’s first outside the U.S. Applications developed here currently are being used in the U.S., Japan and China.

Costa Rica Foreign Trade Minister Alexander Mora highlighted the importance of this new investment because of its contribution to the diversification and attraction of new markets.
