Looking for work? Uber’s new Latin American customer service center will be housed here in Costa Rica.
Beginning in just a few short weeks, 3.5 million dollars and 300 new jobs will be coming to Costa Rica.
The opening of Uber’s brand new Center of Excellence speaks to company’s success despite opposition from traditional taxi drivers. In fact, 51% of Costa Ricans with internet access already prefer Uber over other forms of transportation.

About the Center
The Uber Center for Excellence will become the Latin American hub for customer service relations. Currently the transport service is available in 9 of the region’s 20+ countries.
According to Jorge Sequiera, Director of the Costa Rica Investment Promotion Agency:

Beyond customer service, the Center will also be responsible for data entry, data analysis, case support and processing for the Latin American Uber community.
