3Pillar Global Acquires Costa Rica’s Isthmus Software

American software engineering firm 3Pillar Global has acquired its Costa Rican rival Isthmus Software in an apparent move aimed at bolstering its agile software development services.

Founded in 2003, Isthmus has employed around 200 professionals across two delivery centers in Costa Rica, with its roster of clients including the likes of Walmart and VMware.

It is not clear as to how much 3Pillar paid for the purchase, but the news comes barely four months after it partnered with private equity investor CIP Capital for what it called “fuelling future growth.”

“The acquisition of Isthmus brings expanded engineering excellence and development expertise to the 3Pillar team,” stated David DeWolf, CEO of 3Pillar.

Fairfax, VA-based 3Pillar, which builds software and apps for clients like Fortune and PBS, has around 1,000 employees and delivery centers in five countries around the globe, including India.

The company offers services in eight areas including product strategy, product management, product architecture, product engineering, quality assurance, and testing. Among the sectors, its client includes media and entertainment, financial services, information services, and the health and wellness industry.

Once the deal is closed, Isthmus will be folded into 3Pillar, and all its employees will start working for the American firm.
