Life sciences firm Eurofins opens new global software engineering hub in Dublin

  • International life sciences company Eurofins has officially opened its new Global Software Engineering Centre in Dublin.

    Earlier this year the company, who provides a range of analytical testing services to clients across multiple industries, announced the creation of 150 high-tech jobs with the establishment of the software engineering centre.

    Following that announcement, Eurofins needed a suitable office footprint to accommodate the growing IT team and found that base at Leopardstown South County Business Park.

    The expanding IT team in Dublin is focusing on DevOps, virtualisation and cloud strategy, driving quality and software engineering best practice as part of the 1,500-strong Eurofins global software development teams in the US, Europe and India.

    The company is on track to reach its 2019 goal of employing 60 staff, with further growth planned in 2020.

    As well as providing analytical testing services, the Group is a scientific leader in food, environment, pharmaceutical and cosmetics products testing and in agroscience CRO services. It is also one of the global independent market leaders in certain testing and laboratory services for genomics, discovery pharmacology, forensics, CDMO, advanced material sciences and for supporting clinical studies. In addition, Eurofins is one of the leading global emerging players in specialty clinical diagnostic testing.

    The company was first established in Ireland in 2003 and currently employs 800 people across laboratories in Dublin, Waterford and Cork, in the area of clinical diagnostics, biopharma product testing, food and beverage testing as well as environmental testing, and corporate functions based in Dublin.

    “Our recruitment team has been particularly busy, interviewing and selecting suitable candidates for the many roles we are creating here in Dublin," said Claudius Masuch, Director of the Eurofins IT Solutions Engineering Office. "In our search for talent in the Digital and DevOps space, I am pleased to see that the quality of applicants, both from Ireland and abroad, is outstanding.

    "Our recruitment drive will continue at increased speed throughout 2020 and we hope to have a full team in place in 2021.”
