364 New Jobs in Ireland Announced in October 2016.
In terms of IDA jobs announcements this month, the winners were Cork, Dublin and Limerick.
Today saw the announcement of the opening of a new office in Cork for the US-based cyber security company Cylance Inc. Their security solution CylancePROTECT®, uses artificial intelligence to analyse code DNA prior to execution to proactively prevent security threats and malware. This is dramatically more effective and uses far fewer system resources than traditional ‘detect and respond’ antivirus solutions currently used in industry. The jobs are initially in sales, engineering and customer support with planned software development roles in the future. 150 jobs will be created in Cork over the next 3 years.
On 21st October came the news that US company Wrike plans to add 30 new jobs to their European Headquarters in Dublin. Wrike is a leading provider of SaaS work management software with millions of users in over 120 countries. Corporate customers include Google, Hootsuite and AT&T. Having set up an office in Dublin in 2015, they have had to move to bigger offices to accommodate a rapidly expanding team. Currently numbering 25, they plan to increase their Dublin team to 80 over the next 3 years.
17th October was the date we learned of the opening of ACI Worldwide’s new European Data Centre in Limerick. ACI Worldwide is a leading provider of electronic payment and banking solutions to businesses worldwide. ACI has been in Limerick for 10 years and the new state-of-the-art data centre will accommodate 50 new jobs in addition to the current team of almost 100.
On 10th October came the news that the US based technical support services company Trusource Labs will establish an International Operations Centre in Limerick.
