Thursday, 16th February, 2017 1:00am

There was good news for the local tech sector this week, with the announcement of a Cork expansion and job creation from a US company.

A web server firm announced that it is to open a European headquarters on Leeside, with more than 100 jobs coming on stream in the next few years.

The San Francisco-based company, Nginx, is opening a new headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in the city in March.

Nginx already has an office in Cork, on the Monaghan Road, and it plans to expand its Cork operation for the EMEA headquarters. Currently, Nginx has more than 100 employees worldwide. The company plans to create more than 100 jobs in its Cork office over the next three years in specialties including sales, marketing, finance, business development, software architecture, engineering and research and development.

Launching the jobs, An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, said: “We welcome Nginx for both the job and economic advancement it will bring to Ireland. The company is in the midst of incredible growth, with strong brand recognition throughout EMEA, making it a natural fit to have Cork as a launching point to the Irish market and across the entire region.”

Nginx CEO Gus Robertson said: “By launching our EMEA headquarters in Cork, we’ll be able to better serve our customers throughout the region, empowering them to deliver the best possible web experience to their end users.”
