It was announced today that Neueda Technologies is establishing a Software Engineering Hub in Athlone which will employ 200 staff over four years.
The privately-owned IT Training, development and consulting services company headquartered in Belfast will undertake software development services for global telecommunications and financial services clients at their new offices on the Dublin Road, Athlone.
Neueda Technologies will analyse technical requirements in partnership with clients, researching suitable solutions and building and testing enterprise software and working with clients to deploy working applications.
More than 70 members of staff have been hired already with that number expected to grow to over 80 by the end of the year. The new roles are almost exclusively for technology specialists including experienced software developers, cloud engineers and agile practitioners.
Speaking at the announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation, Heather Humphreys said, "I am delighted to be here today to welcome this exciting news, which will bring 200 quality new jobs over the next 4 years. This large expansion of Neueda’s operation here in Athlone is a welcome boost for the Midlands. It is also a great vote of confidence in what the region has to offer and a testament to the talent and skillset of the existing staff."
Founder and Owner of Neueda Technologies, David Bole added, "After considering several international locations for our new engineering hub, we opted for Athlone in January 2018 and I can say that we wish we had set up here years ago. With one third of our current positions already filled, we continue to be impressed with the level of technical and engineering talent available to us in the Midlands, particularly considering our very high hiring-bar."
