We choose only the best!

  • We only hire the best which is why each developer goes through two interviews internally before we introduce them to our clients.

  • Developers are mentored by our team leads and senior management.

  • Quality matters! Senior developers have 7+ years of technical experience and have worked on English speaking teams.

  • Senior team leads have 10+ years of experience in full life-cycle software implementation. They are responsible for managing the scope, quality, timeline and resources for each client as well as developer on-boarding.

If your looking for a flexible development process, agile development would be an idea choice. It allows for your team to be responsive to changing market conditions and accelerates your time to market. Both key in a fast changing tech world.

Communication is the single most important tool needed for a successful development team. With Excel SoftSources your Costa Rica based team can participate in daily stand-ups, planning meetings or an impromptu call for real-time collaboration.

Costa Rica is one of the most bilingual countries within Latin America, boasting a 97.98% literacy rate. Additionally, Costa Rica is dedicated to teaching science and technology which gives our employees a technology foundation at a young age. The tech community also pursues certifications that are valuable to North American businesses, such as PMP, Six Sigma, ITIL and more.

Similar to what you would find in Silicon Valley, Costa Rica has a strong community of software developers. The vibrant and innovative software culture is drawing more companies to have development resources in Costa Rica.

Not only is Costa Rica in American time zones, Costa Rica is one of the most politically and economically stable countries in Central America. Our stability and peacefulness attracts international praise and visitors. So, visiting your team is a perk of working with us in Costa Rica.

We believe its important to provide our development teams with strong leadership both in the U.S and Costa Rica in order for them to be successful. That’s why we pride ourselves on attracting a strong leadership team that is committed to providing our clients with quality products at affordable costs.
