Huawei announces 50 jobs as it opens new Dublin R&D office
24 November 2015
Leading global ICT solutions provider Huawei has opened an R&D office in Dublin that will create 50 new jobs.
The jobs, based at the company’s IFSC premises, will be filled by 2016, bringing the total number of Huawei employees working in R&D in Ireland to 120.
The new office will expand and enhance research into business innovation, network services, cloud and customer experience, as well as ICT transformation dedicated to service provider operations.
It will be the lead R&D office in Ireland, working in conjunction with Huawei’s other R&D locations in Dublin, Cork and Athlone. The company will have invested €35 million in R&D in the Irish economy this year, supporting the growing technology ecosystem in Ireland.
Huawei Ireland will expand its STEM and education initiatives through its flagship CSR programme, ‘Seeds for the future’, to further support the Dublin facility’s core focus of cloud innovation.
“Each year, Huawei invests at least 10 per cent of its global revenue in R&D. The opening of our newest Dublin facility highlights our long-term dedication to investment and opportunities in Ireland’s technology sector,” said Zhou Hong, president, European Research Institute at Huawei.
“The facility will tap into Dublin’s growing clusters of cloud and technology businesses, nurturing future talent and providing additional new opportunities for highly-skilled professionals.”
Huawei has been operating in Ireland since May 2004 and works with all of the major telecom providers, with its products and services now serving about two million people in the country.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2015/11/24/huawei-announces-50-jobs-as-it-opens-new-dublin-rd-office/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Huawei.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Huawei-300x300.jpgNewscloud,Communications,Dublin,ICT,jobs,STEM
