IBM Ireland announces major investment to create 800 high-tech jobs

Must read

IBM Ireland, a world-leader in technology, have announced a new investment that will create up to 800 high-tech jobs across the country, helping build advanced software underpinned by the latest Artificial Intelligence technologies to advance Security, Automation and Hybrid Cloud.

The announcement of the investment came this Wednesday, and will create hundreds of roles in research and development, as well as digital sales and consulting; and see Ireland continue to be among IBM’s strategic locations globally.

The roles will be created across IBM sites in Dublin, Cork and at IBM’s subsidiary, Red Hat, located in Waterford. 

The new staff will join IBM’s and Red Hat’s diverse workforce, and help enhance Ireland’s rich and highly skilled technology talent pool that supports employment in knowledge-intensive and high-technology sectors.  

As the EU leader for the number of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates per capita, Ireland has a talent pipeline fuelled by skilled young people while educators collaborate with industry to provide the skills needed in the future.  

IBM has been in Ireland for more than 65 years during which time it has continually evolved its operations and capabilities to support the company’s global strategy.

Today, IBM’s operations in Ireland help clients across key sectors such as financial services and healthcare streamline their business processes, increase productivity and gain competitive advantage through technology. Ireland is also host to IBM Research’s only facility in the EU.

The three-year investment is supported by the Government of Ireland through IDA Ireland. 

Speaking of the announcement, Michael Lohan, IDA Ireland chief executive officer, said: “This is a remarkable initiative by IBM Ireland that will not only drive transformation within IBM and Red Hat’s operations but will deliver strong impact in Dublin, Cork and Waterford.

“It is also set to deliver real uplift in the Irish technology ecosystem by advancing capabilities across key growth areas for IDA Ireland such as Cloud, AI, Quantum and Cybersecurity.

“IDA Ireland has partnered with IBM for more than 60 years and we look forward to continuing to do so throughout this exciting project.”
