Data analytics and anonymisation firm Trūata this week announced it plans to hire up to 75 personnel – mainly data analysts, data scientists and engineers – in 2018 for its newly opened headquarters in Dublin.
The recruitment drive comes three months after the start-up was launched as a trust by its founding beneficiaries, Mastercard and IBM. Last month, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) firm C3 IoT joined the company as a beneficiary and technology provider, and earlier this month Trūata appointed Aoife Sexton to its core team as its Chief Privacy Officer.
The company helps organisations conduct analytics in full compliance with Europe’s new privacy and data protection framework, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect on May 25th. Held in a trust structure with the partners as beneficiaries, Trūata aims to provide an innovative approach to handling data anonymisation and analytics, focusing on full compliance with GDPR, both in practice and in spirit.
Speaking this week, Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation, Heather Humphreys said, "I would like to congratulate Trūata on its new HQ in Dublin. Ireland is at the forefront of innovation in data management, which is more important than ever since the introduction of GDPR. Trūata’s arrival is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer, and we welcome the creation of 75 highly-skilled new jobs and wish them well for the future."
