CitySwift, the Galway-based transport data company, has announced 50 roles to be hired in Galway over the next two years with 15 roles being hired for immediately.

The announcement of 50 additional jobs comes shortly after CitySwift secured €2m in funding from existing investors Enterprise Ireland, Western Development Commission, ACT Venture Capital, Irelandia Investment, and Mike McGearty. 

Speaking on the expansion of CitySwift, Minister of State at the Department of Transport,  Hildegarde Naughton, stated: “I welcome the announcement of over 50 jobs in Galway today. Growth of this scale for a local company, especially during these times, is remarkable. Informing and enhancing connectivity across the nation through CitySwift’s platform will do a great deal in optimising public transportation for operators and passengers alike.”

The roles being hired for will be across software, data science, and commercial roles including customer success, sales, and marketing. The company who works with global players such as Go Ahead and National Express will also be moving to a bigger headquarters in Galway City Centre.

Commenting on CitySwift's growth, company Co-Founder and CEO, Brian O’Rourke said: “CitySwift is an Irish-founded scale-up that is continuing to grow at a rapid rate. We are excited to continue to invest in the best talent to fuel our expansion with the hiring of 50 new roles for our Galway headquarters and look forward to finding some of the most talented software, transport and commercial professionals in Galway and Ireland to come on board our journey.”

As winners of “Best Emerging Business” at the most recent Galway Chamber of Commerce Awards, CitySwift plans to continue its expansion by moving into new territories, including Germany and Portugal by early 2021.
