15 Jobs As Limerick Tech Firm Invests In L'Derry

A technology company based in the Republic of Ireland is to expand its operations across the border with the creation of 15 new jobs in L'Derry.

Deveire will mark 10 years in business by investing in Northern Ireland for the first time with a new Software Development Centre.

The firm is behind the systems for over 50 globally-renowned companies including Johnson & Johnson, Cisco, Walmart, Coca-Cola, Amazon and the Special Olympics. It creates web solutions for enterprises and large organisations looking to use the latest technologies for their digital presence.

The 15 new roles for the North West will be created over the next three years at Deveire's new centre in Ebrington Square and will contribute £582,000 to the local economy in annual salaries.

Chief Operating Officer at the Limerick-based firm Cathal Murtagh credited the highly-skilled local talent for their decision to establish operations in Northern Ireland.

"When we began the process of expanding our team, we were eager to create a base where we had access to a strong talent pool of software developers; we believe Londonderry is the right place to find the talent we need," Mr Murtagh said.

"Also, as a part of our Brexit strategy, the Londonderry office gives us access to the UK markets.

"Our Software Development Centre will focus on advanced computing and innovative technical approaches, to build next generation application solutions. It will have a strong focus on culture and people, through our working environment, but this will also be a key objective of our software solutions. Our aim is to create software that meets the users' needs to allow for seamless experiences that are personal to a user, allowing people to reach their full potential."

Invest NI contributed £97,500 towards the new jobs.

Welcoming the company to Northern Ireland, Steve Harper, Executive Director of International Business at the agency said: "Deveire's decision to locate its new centre in the North West is based on the many advantages this region has to offer international companies, particularly in the software and technology industry.

"With our support for 15 new jobs, the company will be able to build upon its innovative ambitions and expand in new markets. The new centre will also create economic benefit for the local economy, with £582,000 of additional annual salaries."
