Signify Health has announced the opening of a new technology centre that is expected to create more than 125 new technology innovation roles in Galway during the next two years.
Founded in 2017, Signify Health is a technology-enabled services company whose mission is to lead the transformation of the U.S. healthcare system to one that aligns payors, providers and patients to achieve the best health outcomes for individuals. Signify Health currently employs more than 2,000 people in the U.S., and has a national mobile network of approximately 10,000 credentialed physicians and nurse practitioners.
The technology centre – which will be located in Galway City – will drive technology innovation for Signify Health as it changes how U.S. healthcare is paid for and delivered so that people can enjoy more healthy, happy days at home. For its first phase of recruiting, Signify Health is seeking candidates to fill a range of roles in product management and software engineering as well as scrum masters.
Welcoming the news last week, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade & Employment, Leo Varadkar said, "I’m really pleased Signify Health has chosen Galway City for its new Technology Centre. It’s a real boost to the city and will create over 125 new jobs by 2024. This investment is a testament to all Galway has to offer and the company can expect to draw from a deep pool of talent and expertise when recruiting for these new jobs. I wish the Signify Health team the very best in this exciting new chapter."
Chief Technology Officer at Signify Health, Josh Builder added, "We know first-hand that Ireland is home to professionals who not only have the experience we need, but who are energised by opportunities to make a meaningful difference in healthcare, and we are excited to now also call the West of Ireland home."
