“We've been working with Isthmus since 2017. Everything has gone great. The developers that we
have chosen have worked out well. Management has done a good job for us, and I would recommend anybody

“I was looking for an organization that could find skilled engineers with good communication
skills at a favorable rate. The company I was looking for would be able to scale up or down quickly
and have diverse talent in the Java, Angular, Node, and automation testing categories. Support close
to our EST time zone was also a consideration.Isthmus had everything I was looking for and more. What
Isthmus is for me, is a partner that brings skilled, talented engineers to the engagement... I found
the team in Costa Rica to be the very best... My experience with Isthmus has been outstanding.”
“Working with Isthmus is an amazing experience... the atmosphere at
this office is very productive and creative.
The developers here are very responsive, and we’ve never had an issue with communication…
they are eager to finish their tasks well ... they are very interested in the work they are
being given. This team has really stood out to me, I think not only because of the culture
they have in their company, but also just the quality of developers that Costa Rica is producing.”
