Fleetmatics to add 75 new jobs in Dublin
09 June 2016
Fleetmatics, a global provider of mobile workforce solutions, is to add up to 75 new R&D jobs at its global HQ in Tallaght, Dublin by 2018. This expansion will bring the company’s total employee headcount in Ireland to more than 200.
Fleetmatics was founded in Ireland in 2004, in a small office in Templeogue, Dublin, employing about 10 people in the first year of operation. It completed its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in 2012, and now employs more than 1,200 people worldwide.
It recently announced that it had signed a deal with An Post to digitise 900 of its 2,700 vehicles with M2M telematics technology. This enabled An Post managers to know where every vehicle is and how fuel-efficient they are.
“While we are growing and expanding Fleetmatics across our major international markets, it is important that we continue to invest here where it all began,” said Dublin-based Peter Mitchell, co-founder and chief technology officer at Fleetmatics.
“Here in Ireland we are spoiled with an incredible talent pool in R&D and we attract them to Fleetmatics by offering engineers and product managers an opportunity to work on leading edge UX, SaaS, Mobile, IoT and Data Analytics projects – all of which help rapidly transform our customers’ businesses and truly make a difference. And of course, they get to be involved in a great Irish tech story.”
The expansion plans also include the development of Fleetmatics’ new Network Operations Centre (NOC) in Dublin, a custom built facility housing the company’s operations and application support engineers. The building will consolidate engineering resources to foster closer collaboration and quicker response times for monitoring, maintenance, scale and support of software and infrastructure.
Fleetmatics delivers innovative mobile workforce management solutions for small, mid-sized and enterprise businesses. Its growth has been supported by its line-up of SaaS-based products that provide simple, intuitive mobile workforce management solutions: Fleetmatics REVEAL and Fleetmatics WORK.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2016/06/09/fleetmatics-to-add-75-new-jobs-in-dublin/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Fleetmatics.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Fleetmatics-300x300.jpgNewsDublin,jobs,R&D,research
