Jaime Escobar, general manager of the firm, said the recruiting process of looking for the best systems engineers, designers and project managers, will start in August.

The company’s expansion of its facilities is more than double their existing, going from 900 to 2,000 square metres.

Currently, Hangar employs 120 people, mostly Costa Rican, working on projects for clients like Adidas, AT&T, Britt, Citibanck, HP, Naciones Unidas, Nissan, Harley Davidson and Rolex.

“Canada, the United States, Britain and Hong Kong, are some of the markets using our services. This comforts us a lot because they are very competitive and highly demanding markets,”said Escobar.

The Costa Rican digital production company was created by Critical Mass in 2009. According to a 2013 report in AdAge, the reason for Critical Mass choosing Costa Rica is the cost will be about 40% to 60% of what the agency would spend in North America. In addition to the cost advantage, Costa Rica is on the same time zone as the U.S., and has a good talent pool drawn from a well-educated population.
