Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is today announcing a major jobs boost for Dublin with 250 new jobs on the way for Veritas Technologies.
They will be created as part of a five year strategy, as the company is to expand its research and development department in the city, following a multi-million Euro investment.
130 of the new positions will be filled within the next year, with the remainder complete by 2019.
The software company, which specialises in multi-cloud data management, will be working closely with IDA Ireland to fill the positions.
Job opportunities will range from new graduates to senior-level executives, as well as multi-cloud engineering and support roles.
The company also says it wants to create close links with universities in Ireland and will launch an internship graduate programme next year.
Bill Coleman, Veritas chief executive, said;
“Our latest research shows that 56% 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”.
Mr Coleman said the aim of the new centre is going to focus on solving these challenges.
