Spearline, a Cork-born global telecommunications company, has today announced plans for 106 new hires in a variety of roles across Ireland, the United States and India. The expansion follows the recent acquisition of testRTC in Israel in late 2021, and will double the firm’s workforce, bringing employee numbers to 250 by the end of the year. Further increases are also planned for 2023.
The new roles will be in customer engagement, finance, HR, marketing, operations, product engineering and sales. Spearline is a technology company that proactively monitors toll and toll-free numbers for connectivity and audio quality, globally.
Remote applications are being invited across almost all positions, in line with the company’s revised hybrid and remote working model. Pre-pandemic, Spearline required prospective staff members to be based at one of its four global locations. However, advancements to the hybrid working model have enabled the company to recruit talent from all over the world, in countries such as America, Romania, France, Switzerland and Brazil.
Headquartered in Skibbereen in Co Cork, the company also boasts a second base in Waterford and intends to hire for at least 38 new Irish positions. Other roles will be attached to offices outside Ireland, but with a new remote and hybrid policy in place, additional Irish hires may be on the cards. Spearline also has locations in Ahmedabad, India and Bucharest, Romania, while Zoom and Mastercard are among the firm’s high-profile clients. As part of the expansion, one of many of the company’s goals is to establish a multi-state team in the US, capable of covering all regions where new and current customers operate.
Commenting on the company’s expansion plans, Spearline CEO and Co-Founder, Kevin Buckley said, "We are delighted to announce we will be expanding our workforce in Ireland and internationally. Currently, our plan is to hire 106 jobs in total, with 38 of those being based across Ireland. The remainder will be in the US and India by year-end, as we adopt a more modern, hybrid working approach in a post-COVID world."
