07 August 2018
DataStax, powering the Right-Now Enterprise with the always-on, distributed cloud database built on Apache Cassandra™, has announced the opening of an office in Cork and expects to create 30 jobs over the next three years, with 10 of the roles being filled immediately in finance and IT.
Built on Apache Cassandra and designed for hybrid cloud
In this data-driven world, DataStax provides the data management layer, built on Apache Cassandra and designed for hybrid cloud, that powers every critical aspect of business, from inventory management to customer experience to supply chain.
DataStax customers include some of the world’s best known and biggest brands, and the company is opening its new office in Ireland to accelerate European expansion and expand its back-office operations.
Based in Santa Clara, California, USA DataStax was founded in 2010 and currently has more than 500 employees based in multiple US and international locations. The move into Ireland is a chance for DataStax to expand its back-office operations and opens the possibility for attracting a wider range of talent in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe.
The announcement was made by Niall Cotter Sr, director of revenue in the company’s finance organisation and Ireland site lead. He stated: “Our investment in Ireland, and specifically in Cork, is further reflection of the reputation held by Ireland in terms of the talent and resources available and will be a key foundation of DataStax’s further growth in both US and international markets.
“This is an incredibly positive move for us and for Ireland. Enterprises understand the current market imperative to build modern applications that use data in the moment to positively affect outcomes for their company.
Help build and manage the data infrastructure
“They are coming to us to help build and manage the data infrastructure behind these business-critical applications in an increasingly complex, cloud-driven technology landscape,” said Robert O’Donovan, CFO at DataStax. “We’re expanding to Ireland to continue to meet these needs. And, we’re excited that our recruiting efforts in Cork are already underway and that those efforts will expand.”
An Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney TD said: “Technology is central to the Government’s plans for jobs and growth, and in the past two years we have added substantial jobs in this area. Today’s announcement by DataStax that they are creating 30 highly skilled jobs in finance and IT is a vote of confidence in Cork’s business ecosystem.”
Mary Buckley, executive director, IDA Ireland, said: “Cork’s tech infrastructure, talent pool, and supportive academic network have created a compelling business environment which continues to attract investment from overseas companies in the technology sector.”
The office space currently secured by DataStax is in a Cork city centre location. Roles in the office are being filled immediately in Finance and IT, in areas, such as accounting, revenue, pricing operations, credit and collections, and security.
