One of Ireland’s most innovative high-tech companies, based in Cork, is to create 60 new jobs over the next two years to support the expansion of its global customer base.
Newsweaver’s workforce will grow from 80 to 140, with a concentration on high-value jobs in research and development, at its HQ in Cork Airport Business Park.
Newsweaver is a great example of the type of company we in government are trying to support ‐ a dynamic Irish company, which started in Cork only 13 years ago.
It sells its services all around the world, and has established itself as the leading international innovator in corporate Internal Communications (IC), having revolutionised email technologies over the past three years.
As part of its expansion, the company is to double the number of developers it employs as it grows its international customer base and confirms its reputation as the market leader in Internal Communications.
It currently delivers employee communication solutions to large corporations in 96 countries. Its client companies are those with workforces in excess of 1,000 people and include Rolls-Royce, Vodafone, Kellogg’s.
The company expects significant national and international interest in the new positions and has started the recruitment drive. In addition to the developer roles the company will be expanding across other key business areas of customer support, marketing, technical support, and sales in Ireland and the United States.
Newsweaver was recently named as one of the country’s best employers, and also one of Ireland’s best ICT companies by the Irish Exporters Association. It was ranked in the top 300 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe and the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for five years in a row.
