50 jobs announced at Limerick software company

KEMP Technologies will bring its Irish workforce to 80 with the new jobs.

A TECHNOLOGY COMPANY has announced 50 new jobs for Limerick.

50 new high end technology based positions will be created over the 3 years by US software company KEMP Technologies at its EMEA HQ in Limerick, bringing its current Irish workforce to 80.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Based in KEMP’s Limerick EMEA HQ, the new jobs will be based in the company’s various departments. In addition to the highly skilled roles, a number of jobs will be set aside for graduates.

Ray Downes, KEMP Technologies CEO, said that the company choose Limerick because it is a gateway to world expansion.

“Since the first investment the intervening three years has seen an almost five times worldwide revenue growth and headcount increase.

“Having recently raised expansion capital to take us through the next number of years it was an easy decision to build on the talent and leadership pool we already have based in Limerick. The bar is raised as the charter of the operation in Limerick will increase to include some global responsibilities.”

KEMP has over 15,000 software clients across the world, including Hyundai, Audi and RTÉ.
