International Retail Solutions company E3 Retail announced recently that it is to establish a Software Development and Sales Centre in Sligo to support the development and localisation of its retail solutions platform and architecture based on a cloud utility (‘pay as you go’) model.
Senior full stack cloud developers
The project is supported by the government through IDA Ireland, with E3 Retail planning to create 40 plus jobs within the next five years. This includes key roles such as technical director, marketing, and a new software development team (senior full stack cloud developers, cloud data storage architects, .net core and Angular 5+ UI developers, QA analysts, DevOps).
The company will initially locate in the Innovation Centre at the Institute of Technology, Sligo.
E3 Retail’s chief operating officer and co-founder Barry Henderson said: “After working with the IDA to evaluate the technical talent in Ireland and appreciating the wonderful community spirit alive in Sligo, we are both honoured and excited to create a new centre in Sligo. We look forward to expanding our global technology team, as we concurrently look to expand our product offerings and consulting services into Europe.”
Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD said: “I am delighted that E3 Retail will establish a Software Development and Sales Centre in Sligo. This will result in the creation of more than 40 highly skilled jobs over the next five years.”
Welcome investment for Sligo and the northwest region
IDA Ireland’s CEO Martin Shanahan said: “This software development project by E3 Retail is a terrific and very welcome investment for Sligo and the northwest region, given IDA Ireland’s strategic objective to win more high value projects for the region.
“The 40 jobs being created will be a significant boost to the local economy. It will also act as an important reference seller for Sligo and the region, demonstrating that Tech companies such as E3 Retail and Overstock, who established in 2013, can find the skilled staff they need to base their operations here.”
