“(Amazon) is the number one brand worldwide in customer satisfaction. I want to invite all those who are looking for opportunities to consider us,” the executive said on Wednesday (June 26), during an activity at the company’s facilities in Calle Blancos (Goicoechea).

Among the new hires required by Amazon are administrative functions, human resources, finance, research, digital advertising, fraud investigation, as well as management positions.

Applicants require two or more languages (including Mandarin), although there are also positions for which only Spanish is needed, with the possibility of studying a second language through the Alliance for Bilingualism program,a public-private initiative, of which Amazon currently has 150 active participants, with a growth to 500 by the end of the year.

Amazon began operations in Costa Rica in 2008 with only 75 employees.
