Open Source Provider Opens New Site in Costa Rica


Rivet Logic Corporation (, a leading provider of open source content management and collaboration solutions, has opened a near-shore facility in Costa Rica.

With a growing customer base and increased interest in lower-cost, dedicated software development and maintenance resources, Rivet Logic recently established a near-shore facility. As a wholly-owned subsidiary serving as an extension of Rivet Logic’s professional staff in the US, Rivet Logic Costa Rica SRL delivers the same high-quality skills and services to clients.

Longer-term, more complex engagements are the most suitable projects for the Costa Rica Development Center. As the adoption of open source platforms continues to gain acceptance, larger companies working with Rivet Logic on significant software implementation, customization and integration efforts will benefit most from leveraging the company’s Costa Rica talent.

“We see Costa Rica as an ideal location for a near-shore facility given its favorable time zone. This allows for better team collaboration between our customers, consultants and near-shore team to accommodate the real-time communication demands of our agile software development processes,” says Mike Vertal, President and CEO of Rivet Logic.

The Costa Rica operation was initially launched last year but was made available on a limited basis to only a few of Rivet Logic’s strategic customers as the team was ramping up. Based on positive feedback from these initial clients, Rivet Logic has accelerated the expansion in Costa Rica and now near-shore software development services are generally available. The region is home to a lot of talented, eager developers who are anxious to work on leading-edge open source projects for top-tier customers.

Manuel Calvo, who previously worked for HP and brings several years experience developing near-shore operations for US companies, directs Rivet Logic’s operations in San Jose, Costa Rica. Manuel said: “Costa Rica’s team is highly motivated and looking forward to contribute with our talent and passion toward clients’ objectives. They will find us to be a trusted companion providing tremendous value from a strategic location”.
