INIT celebrated the opening of its new software development centre in Maynooth, Co. Kildare today.
As a Global supplier of integrated planning, scheduling, telematics and ticketing systems for buses, trams and trains, INIT has already realized several successful projects in Ireland and now consolidated its presence in the region.
The company plans to create a world-class software development centre in Ireland, the first one outside Germany, in order to tap into Ireland’s renowned software ecosystem and service their expanding English-speaking markets.
Future plans include the provision of up to 20 additional high-skilled jobs in the areas of software development, in C++ and C#. The celebration marks the company’s first operations centre outside Germany.
Welcoming the news today, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys said, "I was delighted to see INIT choose to locate their first operation outside of Germany in Maynooth. Their plans to create a world-class software development centre in Kildare will result in the creation of an additional 20 highly skilled jobs. The Government has been making strenuous efforts to ensure that we have the right conditions in place to meet the needs of leading technology companies such as INIT, and Ireland is now well-established as a vibrant technology hub. This is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer and I wish the company every success."
