In an expansion supported by the Department of Jobs through Enterprise Ireland, the company will hire in engineering, sales, product management, marketing and support, creating specialist teams to further its ambitious growth.
“We are now looking to start the next evolution of our growth, the next phase of our business, based around the world class technology we’ve got,” said CEO Ralph Shaw at the announcement.
The company’s technology is incorporated in everything from taxis and vending machines to building energy management (BEM) systems and cash in transit vans, including among its customers AT&T, eir, Three, Telefonica and Vodafone.
The announcement was welcomed by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, who said “Every sector is going to be transformed by the power of the technologies that you are at the heart of.”

The minister re-affirmed the government’s commitment to these areas, adding “We will make sure to address the technologies that are coming down the track, anticipating and be alert to move and to be well aligned with those opportunities as they come our way.”
