Akamai Technologies has been named one of the 10 best companies to work at in Central America and the Caribbean by the Great Places to Work Institute. The cloud platform company offers user-friendly navigation on a range of technological devices.
Great Places to Work also named it among the five best places to work in Costa Rica and as one of the 119 best in categories of camaraderie and collaboration.
Qualified as a small company with less than 1,000 employees, Akamai was measured through data from a confidence index questionnaire and a culture audit. The survey inquired into workplace environment and overall company opportunities, while the audit focused on factors like cultural practices and policies, the company said.
“We’re proud to be on the list of Excellent Places to Work in Central America and the Caribbean,” said Robert Hughes, Akamai’s president of international operations, in a release. “This recognition validates our efforts to create an inspiring and rewarding work environment and what we receive in return is invaluable as we continue to invest in this important region.”
Managers of the Costa Rican branch said they plan to add nearly 100 more jobs before the end of 2015.
