New York-based Candid Co., a company dedicated to designing and producing dental aligners, has launched its operations in Costa Rica with a $200,000 investment.

“Costa Rica has been working for many years now with these companies and their culture, helping to pave a smooth transition and ease the engagement in the communication process with the U.S. offices,” said Alexander Segura, General Manager at Candid Co. Costa Rica.

According to the firm, their facilities located in Cariari Corporate Center in Heredia Province, already hired 200 employees to work remotely from Costa Rica and will hire another 50 people up to December. 

The company is hiring people with B1 and B2 English skills that have experience in dental design. However, they are also hiring people without experience that are technologically skilled to learn the software. A second hiring group will be oriented to Dentists or Orthodontists who have a degree in Dentistry with or without experience. Interested people should visit the firm Careers site or email at jobs@tpmxco.com.


According to the Ministry of Foreign Trade, as of September, the foreign trade sector showed a 27% increase in goods and services exports.

Candid Co.. is one of many U.S. companies opening operations in Costa Rica. Recently, the California- based Nevro Corp, opened its operations in the country.

Although several companies are offering jobs, Costa Rica remains with a 15.3% unemployment rate, according to the National Employment Survey. The survey reveals that there are approximately more than 378,000 people without registered jobs in the country from July to September 2021.
