A NEW multi-million euro hi-tech centre in Dublin 15 will create 250 new jobs in the area it was announced last week.

Veritas Technologies, which specialises in cloud data management, says 130 of the roles will be filled within a year and the rest by 2019.

An Taoiseach and local Dublin West TD, Leo Varadkar, officially opened the company’s new research and development centre where the jobs will be located.

“It’s a great boost for Ballycoolin and for North-West Dublin,” he said.

“I am really pleased to hear that of the new jobs Veritas Ireland are creating, 110 will be research positions offering opportunities to new graduates over the next three years.

“This is a great development for both Veritas and for Ireland and will offer so many young professionals experience in working with a dynamic global company.

“The Government is prioritising research and development, innovation and enterprise, to ensure companies like Veritas can grow their operations here.”

Veritas has already started recruiting for a wide-array of open positions at the €30 million Ballycoolin facility and is working closely with IDA Ireland to secure top talent with cloud-based technology skills.

The recruitment drive focuses on development roles - from new graduates to senior-level executives, as well as multi-cloud engineering and supporting cross-functional roles, such as product and programme management.

These roles will largely support new products, services and applications for Veritas.

Veritas says it will also focus on creating close links with universities across Ireland and intends to launch an internship graduate programme in 2018.

“We’re thrilled to announce that we’re actively recruiting innovative talent at all levels in Ireland to help us transform how customers can harness the power of their data in a multi-cloud world,” said Bill Coleman, chief executive officer, Veritas.

“Our latest research shows that 56 per cent of organisations have a cloud-first mentality, but are struggling with how to protect their data, gain visibility and extract maximum value while staying compliant.

“This new centre is going to focus on solving these challenges and we’re delighted to work with the IDA Ireland to attract top talent into the Veritas family.

“We also believe in nurturing our talent and we hope future employees of Veritas in Dublin will stay for years to come.”

The new R&D centre in Ballycoolin is a strategic extension of a new innovation centre in San Francisco, which is also focused on delivering market-leading products and solutions for the Veritas multi-cloud data management platform.
