VCE announces 150 engineering and software development jobs
05 March 2014
Some 150 new jobs have been announced at cloud computing and software infrastructure company VCE.
Over the next two years, the company will be looking to hire highly skilled people across a variety of roles – including QA engineers, software engineers and software developers, as well as staff to fill other R&D support roles – in its R&D centre in Cork. This will bring the number of employees there to more than 250.
The new roles will significantly expand VCE’s existing operations in Ireland, which include professional and customer services, manufacturing, sales operations and general support functions.
Cork is home to VCE’s first centre outside the United States. The company sees Ireland as an important part of providing its service outside of its home country. “Four years ago, VCE established its international headquarters in Cork because of its highly educated workforce, the incredible passion this workforce has for technology, and ease of doing business,” said Bob Taccini, CFO of VCE.
“Converged Infrastructure from VCE is changing the game for how IT is deployed, operated and consumed, and we’re excited to partner with IDA Ireland to expand our operations in Cork as a global innovation hub for VCE.”
The company also confirmed that additional recruiting efforts are under way for the open R&D roles and other functions.
Welcoming the announcement, IDA Ireland chief executive Barry O’Leary said the choice of Cork for the new R&D centre further endorses Ireland’s established reputation for research and development activities in the international marketplace.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2014/03/05/vce-announces-150-engineering-and-software-development-jobs/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/cloud-1024x595.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/cloud-300x300.jpgNewsjobs,software
