U.S. tech company NS1 is all set to hire to hire at least 30 computer engineers in Cork. The New York based firm is expanding their global footprint and is seeking to explore options in Ireland. In wake of this expansion, NS1 is building an engineering center of excellence in Ireland. Moreover, they will add the prospect jobs over the next two years.
Ireland will serve as hub
Ireland will serve as a hub for future hires throughout Europe. The Government-supported company is securing office space in Cork city. However, they will also offer remote work option to its new hires. This will help NS1’s sales-focused London team to work with other sites in the United States and Vietnam. IDA Ireland said this in a statement. NS1 is a New York based IT company. It builds software to help businesses manage internet traffic, including NS1 Connect, a cloud-based platform for application delivery. Uber, Dropbox, Salesforce, ebay and LinkedIn are among its prominent clients.
Cork is a lucrative location for NS1
David Coffey, chief product officer at NS1 termed Cork as “top of the list” among various available options. “The type of talent I’ve seen in the Cork market aligns perfectly with our expansion strategy as we build products at a scale to meet global demand.” David Coffey expressed his views in a statement. Irish Government is supporting this project through IDA Ireland. In addition, Leo Varadkar, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment also termed the decision to choose Cork as great news. “This new facility will play a key role in the expansion of NS1’s global engineering presence and I wish the team all the best in this exciting new chapter.” Leo said in his statement.
Cork has seen several other jobs announcements in recent weeks. Janssen Sciences announced their plans to create 180 new full-time jobs as part of a €150m expansion in Ringaskiddy in March. Moreover, US company Nasuni also came up with plans of 55 new engineering jobs in Cork last week.
