It was announced today that Esri Ireland will create 35 new jobs over the next two-and-a-half years to support its goal of becoming a €10 million business by 2020.
This will bring the total number employed by Esri Ireland to 85. The majority of new employees will be based in Dublin while some will operate out of Esri Ireland’s offices in Holywood, Co. Antrim.
Esri Ireland had revenues of €7 million in 2016, up 21% on 2015, with the strong growth being driven by new public and private sector clients. The company specialises in the application of geographic information systems, helping customers record where things happen and analyse why, with the aim of providing insight and helping them to make better decisions.
Esri invests 30% of its annual profits into the ongoing development of its technologies which represented an R&D investment of approximately €250 million in 2016.
The new available positions include skilled and specialist roles such as software engineers, GIS consultants and developers, technical support as well as sales and marketing people. As a member of Esri UK and the global group, the team will be working on Irish and international projects.
Speaking about the investment, Director and Country Manager at Esri Ireland, Paul Synnott said, "By continuing to recruit and invest in hiring the highest calibre of GIS professionals, we will ensure that we continue to serve the needs of our customers. As well as a sign of our ongoing commitment to our existing customers throughout Ireland, this will empower us to demonstrate the tangible cost savings and service improvement that GIS can deliver to leading businesses around the country.”
