New Costa Rican Office
Opens Its Door

We are thrilled to announce that Newfire’s newest Costa Rican office in Santa Ana is fully operational and ready to welcome 100+ new team members. Costa Rica’s tech community is thriving and it was recently named #1 on Investment Monitor’s 2022 Inward FDI Performance Index (which measures a country’s inward investment levels). We’re honored to be a part of the exciting economic growth in this beautiful country. 

We officially opened our doors in Santa Ana by inviting a group of our clients, our executive leadership team, and Newfire team members from across the globe to join us for a week of collaboration, fun, and the opportunity to experience the Pura Vida lifestyle!

We kicked off the week with a ceremonial ribbon cutting and were thrilled to have Vice President of Costa Rica, Stephan Brunner, and President of the board of CINDE Costa Rica Investment Promotion Agency, Eric Scharf, join us for this important event. It was our absolute honor to have Mr. Brunner cut the ribbon himself. Our sincerest thanks for all of the local support and we look forward to continued collaboration with and investment in the Costa Rican tech community.

The week continued with a variety of opportunities for Newfire team members from across the organization to collaborate, brainstorm, work hard, and have fun, all while getting to spend face-to-face time with colleagues from across the globe that typically only work together through screens. We had folks from senior leadership, to development, to recruitment, to marketing spending the week together in our brand new Santa Ana office.

We capped off the week with a team trip to some amazing Costa Rican sites – the Poás volcano crater, some stunning tropical waterfalls, and more – the favorite activity of the week by far.

This was a great opportunity to spend some time outside the working environment and experience the local culture with our Costa Rican colleagues. Beyond that, we’ll wrap up with one of our favorite sayings, “a picture is worth a thousand words!” Check out these shots from our adventures.
