Viatel Technology Group has announced it will create 50 new jobs over the next 18 months.
The company currently employs 275 people to support over 5,000 enterprise customers, the additional 50 permanent positions will come online over the next 18 months.
The roles will be created across software engineering, systems development, network engineering, technical support, and sales.
Viatel has offices in Dublin, Limerick and Dundalk. Recruitment for the first of these new, hybrid roles is now underway. The jobs announcement comes as the group significantly expands its security portfolio, while continuing to grow its share of the domestic market for digital services and business telecoms.
Speaking at an event at Viatel’s Blanchardstown office and data centre location, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said, "Fifty local jobs in the tech sector over the next 18 months is a fantastic news story and a significant expansion for the company. It’s good to see that jobs are being created in the tech sector and that companies are still recruiting, notwithstanding the fact that so many companies are downsizing."
He added, "It demonstrates that Ireland is open to investment, to trade, to talent and to creativity, and that we are a country of opportunity, where indigenous enterprise can flourish alongside international companies."
