IT management and security software firm Kaseya has announced the creation of 250 jobs in Dundalk over the next three years.
The company plans to establish a new centre of excellence in the town and will be recruiting engineers, technical support and sales staff as well as positions across corporate services.
Kaseya said it will work closely with university partners in the area to help train students for the positions.
“We are planning to attract top tech talent and generate a robust workforce pipeline in the local community,” said Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola.
“We are excited about this partnership that will expand Kaseya’s footprint in Ireland, where Kaseya has its roots. The company first established its EMEA headquarters in Dublin in 2016,” he added.
The project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
“This is excellent news. It really demonstrates Kaseya’s commitment to Ireland and the attractiveness of Dundalk as a place to invest,” said Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar.
The company’s new centre of excellence will be focused on research and development.
“Thanks to Kaseya’s positive experience with establishing a facility in Dublin, the company has selected Dundalk as the location of its second Irish site,” said CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan.
“This is very good news for the entire region and the skilled and talented workforce located there,” he added.
Dundalk Chamber is delighted to welcome Shane Mulholland and Kaseya to Dundalk.
We have supported and encouraged Kaseya to consider Dundalk by highlighting the advantages that the M1 Corridor demonstrates.
Kaseya noted the infrastructure, including broadband and transport links. Paddy Malone PRO of the Chamber answered all queries that were raised and supplied all the technical details required.
Paddy, who is also Chair of DkIT also introduced Kaseya to DkIT and its Regional Development Centre headed up by Aidan Browne.
Aidan was able to give the necessary confirmations to Kaseya that its requirements could be met by highlighting the skills already in the region’s population and the potential of upskilling that DkIT can facilitate
This will be Kaseya’s second Irish investment and is therefore a significant vote of confidence in both Ireland and Dundalk. Kaseya have already started recruitment
