Irish technology company, Netwatch Group, has today announced that it will create 100 new positions in sales, engineering, project management and finance. 

Over the past eight years, Netwatch has grown their business from a single sales employee in Boston to their present US workforce across six locations including New Jersey, Boston, Atlanta, Lake Forest, California, Dallas and Houston, Texas.
 
The announcement was made at a round table business briefing with the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD in the US Chamber of Commerce offices in Washington, D.C.
 
The latest expansion at Netwatch is being driven by the demand for its proprietary technologies that allow for real-time intervention during an attempted security breach. The company's in-house R&D team in Ireland is developing new solutions built on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) which is revolutionizing the proactive visual monitoring segment of the security industry globally. 
 
Headquartered in Carlow, Netwatch Group has had a presence in the US since 2012, when it opened its first office in Boston, Massachusetts. In April 2018, Netwatch acquired NMC in California and CalAtlantic in Texas and now operates three communications hubs in the US. 

Welcoming the announcement, Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar said, "I am really pleased to see the Netwatch Group continuing to expand in the United States with this significant jobs announcement. Netwatch is an innovation-led company which has illustrated how jobs created in Ireland can in turn lead to job creation in multiple locations across the US."
