Business services company Concentrix announced Monday that it is hiring 700 people to expand its operations in the capital San José. The company is looking for professionals in business administration with specializations in recruitment, financial analysis and quality management.

Concentrix is also offering jobs for account supervisors, operations managers, customer service representatives and technical support agents fluent in English, French, German and Spanish.

Candidates must have experience developing in Java, Javascript, QA Automation, native and hybrid mobile development on iOS and Android platforms, and also in DevOps.

Interpreters

The Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE) announced that Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. is hiring 100 people for its interpretation services division.

The hiring means the company will double its staff in Costa Rica, one of the 27 countries where it currently operates.

Recruiters in the next two months will offer jobs for bilingual (English – Spanish) staff with a high command of both languages. Candidates with command of a third language and experience in interpretation will be given preference, CINDE reported.

Job applicants must have access to a landline and will be evaluated for their interpretation skills. Those selected for a contract will be able to work remotely, and the company offers various schedule options.

Those interested can apply online on the company’s website.

CINDE General Director Jorge Sequeira said the number of international companies in the services sector here has grown dynamically in the past 15 years, to nearly 400 companies today.
