    The company sells software tools and products to emergency services and hospitals in the US and says its “mission is to improve community health and safety through the power of data”.

    Invest NI has offered the company £780,000 towards creating the jobs over the next three years, which will be in software, engineering, HR, and operations.

    The new posts will boast average salaries of nearly £40,000 and will contribute over £4.7million annually in additional salaries to the local economy, according to Invest NI.

    Chris Dillie, President and CEO of ESO said: “We believe smart data is changing the world in which we live, helping us make more informed decisions about how we approach healthcare and public safety.

    “We identified Northern Ireland as the perfect location to establish our new centre due to the exceptional talent pool and the support from Invest NI. We’re looking for A+ talent to join our Belfast team to build on our product portfolio and help our customers be successful.”

    ESO was founded in 2004 and has multiple offices across the United States, including its headquarters in Austin, Texas; Dallas and Des Moines, Iowa.
