It was announced yesterday that Global company, DataStax, is opening a new office in Cork and expects to create 30 jobs over the next 3 years with 10 of the roles being filled immediately in Finance and IT.
Based in Santa Clara, CA, USA DataStax was founded in 2010 and currently has over 500 employees based in multiple US and international locations. Datasax say the move into Ireland is a chance for DataStax to expand its back-office operations and opens the possibility for attracting a wider range of talent in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe.
The office space currently secured by DataStax is in a Cork city center location. Roles in the office are being filled immediately in Finance and IT, in areas, such as accounting, revenue, pricing operations, credit and collections, and security.
Welcoming the announcement yesterday, Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney said, "Technology is central to the Government’s plans for jobs and growth, and in the past two years we have added substantial jobs in this area. Today’s announcement by DataStax that they are creating 30 highly skilled jobs in Finance and IT is a vote of confidence in Cork’s business ecosystem."
