New tech hub opens in Cork

A technology, engineering and consulting service provider has announced 200 new jobs in Ireland as well as the opening of its first regional hub in Mahon.

Expleo, which has been operating in Ireland for more than 20 years, said it is planning to invest €10 million in expanding its team from 800 to 1,000 over the next 2 years.

The majority of the 200 jobs will be highly skilled IT roles in disciplines including software development, DevOps, software engineering, and technical engineering

With its new hub now open in Mahon, the company plans to open subsequent hubs in Galway and Limerick.

The company said it has seen a 25% growth in Irish revenues over the past 2 years, spurred by widespread digitalisation across all industries.

Phil Codd, Managing Director, Expleo Ireland, said: “Following extensive research of available resources and skills throughout the country, it was evident that regional hubs would provide Expleo with the additional talent and impetus we need to deliver on our ambitious growth plans.

“Our new hires in Cork will have access to all the benefits our current employee base enjoys including competitive salaries, flexible working, world-class training programmes, and a highly supportive working culture.”
