US technology company NS1 will hire at least 30 computer engineers in Cork over the next two years to expand its presence in Ireland.
The government-backed company is securing office space in Cork city but will allow its new employees to work remotely, state development agency IDA Ireland said in a statement.
Ireland will serve as a hub for future recruitments across Europe, said IDA Ireland, to complement NS1’s sales-focused London team and to work with other locations in the United States and Vietnam.
Based in New York, NS1 develops software to help businesses manage Internet traffic, including NS1 Connect, a cloud-based application delivery platform.
His clients include Uber, Dropbox, Salesforce, ebay and LinkedIn.
Tánaiste and Enterprise Minister Leo Varadkar said the planned expansion in Cork “shows the rich pool of talent that is available in the region”.
“This new facility will play a key role in expanding NS1’s global engineering footprint and I wish the team well in this exciting new chapter,” he said.
The company intends to create a technical center of excellence at its new location in Cork, training emerging tech talent in the latest cloud technologies and advanced programming languages.
David Coffey, NS1’s chief product officer, said Cork was the first choice for the company.
“The type of talent I’ve seen in the cork market is a perfect fit for our expansion strategy as we manufacture products at a scale to meet global demand,” he said.
“When NS1 first scouted locations for expansion, Cork was top of the list for me based on the incredible success I’ve had in the past building centers of excellence here.”
According to the company, last year marked NS1’s eighth consecutive year of annualized revenue growth.
Earlier this month, NS1 announced that it will continue to respond to network traffic originating from Russia, particularly for NS1 customers producing news, education or social resources.
