Hewlett Packard Enterprise has this week announced plans to recruit 150 experienced technologists in Ireland over the next two years. The company has also named Galway as its European hub for cyber security operations and is establishing a new Hybrid Cloud Practice to help Irish customers accelerate their digital transformation.
This will enable the company to grow its operations and employee base in the country, increase its R&D, product development and global cyber security services.
In particular, HPE will hire experienced talent with expertise in areas of cyber security, software development, global R&D and cloud consulting. The jobs will be based at HPE’s sites in Galway and Kildare, but thanks to HPE’s Edge-to-Office initiative the majority of work can be carried out from flexible locations, thus opening up these roles to applicants from anywhere in the country.
Welcoming the news, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar said, "I’m really pleased to see that Hewlett Packard Enterprise is expanding its operations in Ireland by creating 150 highly skilled jobs over the next two years. It’s also great news that the company has chosen Galway for its European hub for cyber security operations. Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been long-established in Ireland and is a significant source of employment in both Galway and Kildare."
President and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Antonio Neri added, "This year HPE will celebrate a fifty year legacy of operations in Ireland, so I am delighted to be building on our strong history of investing in Ireland with today’s announcement of new jobs and operations in the country. Ireland has an incredible technology-focused economy and a highly skilled workforce, and our investment in the country will further develop the country as a critical market for HPE’s global business, as well as benefitting our customers, partners, team members and the citizens of Ireland."
