SoftwareONE announces the creation of 100 new jobs as part of €16m expansion plan, supported by IDA Ireland
SoftwareONE has today announced a major expansion of its Irish operations, creating 100 new jobs in a move that will increase its workforce across Ireland tenfold over the next three years. The expansion is part of a €16m investment plan, supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
Established in 1985 and globally headquartered in Switzerland, SoftwareONE has over 30 years’ experience in software licensing with a local presence in over 80 countries. The organisation has over 25,000 clients and 3,000 employees across the globe. SoftwareONE first entered Ireland in 2011, opening an office in Mahon, Co. Cork, and is now expanding its Irish footprint with the opening of a new office in Blanchardstown, where the majority of the new positions will be based.
In a bold move from its well established roots in software licensing, SoftwareONE has developed the PyraCloud Platform – a new innovative cloud platform which provides customers with choice, transparency and control of their digital transformation agendas and moves towards the cloud. PyraCloud analyses existing on-premise software spend, helps extract technical and business transformation drivers, monitors consumption of cloud services and enables businesses to move to the cloud in a controlled and transparent way.
This innovative solution has led SoftwareONE to invite applications for a wide variety of roles including technical positions such as senior scrum masters, full stack developers, front end developers, test engineers and user experience experts as well as professionals in HR, finance, sales and administration.
Making today’s announcement, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD, said “Today’s announcement that SoftwareONE is creating 100 new jobs is great news for the country. We are all aware that Cloud Computing is a huge growth area and this company is at the cutting edge of this exciting development. SoftwareONE’s expansion builds on our success in developing a thriving software sector in Ireland over recent years following our investment in developing appropriate skills. All jobs created have a positive knock on effect for the wider community. I wish Mike Gersten and the team every success into the future.”
Mike Gersten, SoftwareONE’s Global Innovations and Platforms Officer, added “This is a very exciting time in SoftwareONE’s journey. We are a global leader when it comes to software licensing and now we have developed an innovative solution which offers seamless control of cloud solutions and services to our customers.”
