Irish software company Cora Systems is set to create around 150 new jobs across Ireland over the next two years.
The Carrick-on-Shannon-based company said the new jobs come on the back of €60m in new business secured since earlier this year.
Cora Systems provides project management software for large corporations and government organizations, managing over $100 billion worth of projects every day.
It has customers in over 50 countries, including Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Automated Logic, Honeywell and the UK’s National Health Service.
Overall, Cora is expected to create more than 300 new jobs in Ireland and the US, with 100 expected to be added over the next 12 months and 200 by 2024.
Half of the jobs will be housed at the main office in Carrick on Shannon, with hybrid working arrangements possible, the company said.
Cora also has offices in Dublin, Atlanta, Georgia in the US and Bedford in the UK.
It is looking to expand its Irish research and development team and add global sales, marketing, solutions and professional services roles.
Ireland’s R&D staff can expect to work with technologies centered around predictive analytics, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence, Cora said.
The company is working with Atlantic Technology University in Sligo on graduate recruitment, which is expected to continue to grow.
Founder and chief executive Philip Martin said the company is in “hypergrowth mode” after investing during the pandemic.
“As a bootstrap company, we were able to focus not only on profitability but also on product innovation,” he said.
“During the pandemic, we invested 10 million euros in our people and our product, resulting in a 330 percent growth over the previous year.
“The ongoing structural changes in global supply chains have presented major companies with major challenges and in some cases resulted in losses in the hundreds of millions.
“Cora streamlines and centralizes all the data required to help our clients deliver their projects on time and on budget thanks to the seamless integration of schedules, forecasting, resources and financial controls, ultimately protecting the bottom line.
“Our growth has been fueled in part by some great C-suite hires in the US and Ireland and we offer a fantastic place to work on the River Shannon where we offer a range of benefits including remote/hybrid working options, relocation/ Secondment opportunities and the chance to work at the forefront of leading technology.”
