It's Ergo on Leeside!

Signs that the IT sector is booming in Cork were reinforced yesterday with the announcement of 30 new jobs.

Irish IT company Ergo is creating the jobs bringing its workforce in Cork up to 46. Following the 2016 acquisition of licensing specialist firm Micromail on Bessboro Road, Ergo says that its Cork presence has strengthened and it is continuing to expand leading to the creation of these additional jobs.

John Purdy, CEO of Ergo told the Cork Independent: “Since our acquisition of Cork-based company Micromail in 2016, we continue to grow our footprint in Cork resulting in new significant customer acquisition.

“Our belief is that if we are going to serve customers in Munster we need to have a visible presence. Cork is the ideal location with its strong economy and booming IT sector and Ergo wants to contribute to its success.”

Ergo is also a member of it@cork, a not for profit independent organisation representing the technology sector in the south of Ireland.

It currently represents more than 300 member companies with over 30,000 employees.

Chairperson of it@cork Caroline O’Driscoll said that these new jobs were a sign that the IT sector is getting stronger in Cork. 
She said that an it@cork survey last year showed that 86 per cent of its members were planning on expanding in the next three years, which Ms O’Driscoll said shows how much ambition these companies have in Cork. 
VP of Malewarebytes - another it@cork member company - Anthony O’Mara told the Cork Independent: “The Ergo expansion is wonderful news and the team there deserve to be proud of what they have built. I think this is another affirmation of how strong the tech sector is in Ireland and as we celebrate our third anniversary in Cork how strong the enterprise and security sector is in this region.”
A cloud and managed services provider, Ergo announced that it will be expanding its workforce by a total of 100 people as it forecasts revenues to hit €100m by 2020. 
Jobs will be created primarily in Dublin and Cork, bringing staff numbers to 510 in total.
From IT solutions that range from software and infrastructure to IT staffing to document and print solutions, these new Ergo roles will include a spectrum of commercial, technical, project and programme management skills. For more information visit
