JOBS MINISTER Richard Bruton has announced the creation of 110 new technology jobs in Galway and Dublin.

Cloud computing company SourceDogg.com is to create 80 jobs in Galway, in engineering, IT support and professional services roles, while data processing company Datalogic ADC will create 30 new jobs in Dublin.

SourceDogg chief executive Mark Scanlon said the new jobs would offer “a great opportunity for individuals to be an early part of an Irish success story”, and predicted that his company would be the largest in its sector, in the world, by 2014.

SourceDogg operates in five countries and has a growing number of clients, including Aer Lingus.

Datalogic operates retail scanners and mobile computers for use in industries including retail, transport, entertainment and healthcare. Its Dublin premises will operate as its headquarters in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Chief executive Bill Parnell said the jobs being created there would include roles for accountants, sales personnel and order managers.

“We are confident that Ireland has all the necessary elements to assist us in driving our European growth,” he said. “We are confident that this strategic location will allow us to strengthen our European customer relationships, propelling our business to even greater success.”

Richard Bruton said a “powerful engine of indigenous enterprise” would be necessary if Ireland was to return to high levels of employment.

I am determined that, with the proper supports from Government, companies like SourceDogg can drive the sustainable, enterprise-led, job-creating recovery we so badly need.

Referring to the jobs being created by Datalogic ADC in particular, Bruton said business process outsourcing was a “key sector” where the Irish economy had significant potential.

“With implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs I am convinced that many more announcements like this will be possible in the coming years.”

A further jobs announcement at payments processor Western Union, based at Clonskeagh in Dublin, is due later this morning.
