A TOTAL OF 132 new positions have been announced this morning at five US- and Europe-based companies. The jobs are to be spread across sectors like IT, cyber security, life sciences and financial services.
The majority of the jobs are in Dublin, but there’s good news for Galway too — logistics company SEKO MedTec Solutions is establishing a European Control Centre in the city, with the creation of 30 jobs.
In the capital, the biggest number of jobs confirmed today are at New Relic — a software analytics company based in San Francisco. It’s establishing a Europe, Middle-East and Asia headquarters in Dublin, and hiring 50 people.
There’s 22 jobs being created at NeoMed, which manufactures enternal nutrition devices. Their EMEA HQ in Dublin will be responsible for all sales outside of the US.
Energy consulting company capSpire is opening its first international office with the creation of 20 more positions.
And Starting Dot, the Paris based internet domain name registry, is announcing the establishment of its operations centre in the city. Ten jobs are coming on stream, across a range of activities — including sales, finance, IT and customer support.
The companies’ Irish expansion is supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland, which says it has “broadened and deepened” its approach in recent years and is now working with younger, high growth companies who aspire to be the multi-nationals of the future.
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said in a statement:
“Today’s announcement that 5 fast-growing young companies, across a range of fast-growing sectors, are locating operations in Dublin and Galway with the creation of 132 jobs is great news for Ireland.
We in Government are determined to build on this to ensure that we can continue to see the flow of multinational investment to Ireland and help create the growth and jobs we need”.
