Globalization Partners to set up a technology centre in Ireland

  • US company Globalization Partners has announced plans to establish European headquarters and a technology centre in Galway, Ireland, creating up to 100 jobs.

    The Boston based firm enables companies to expand internationally across six continents and into more than 170 countries without the hassle of setting up local branch offices or subsidiaries.

    Globalization Partners is recruiting for 25 technology positions immediately and is expected to create up to 100 new technology jobs over the next three years.

    The newly created positions include software engineers, technology leads, help centre support, DevOps engineers and UI/UX designers.

    Globalization Partners has a planned investment of tens of millions of euro in Galway, and the new hires will support the ongoing development of its software solution.

    The technology team in Galway is headed up by Ciaran O’Toole who joined Globalization Partners in June 2020 as Senior Director, Software Engineering. Previously O’Toole held leadership positions with SmartBear and Synchronoss Technologies, where he established and scaled engineering teams.

    "This is an ideal time to join our team in Galway as we develop new and emerging technology that is transforming how companies hire talent around the globe,” said Gerard Keating, Chief Technology Officer, Globalization Partners.

    "We are in an exciting period as a company in which we are shifting our solution to automate and scale. Ciaran’s team is critical as we map our technology to our long-term business plan."

    Irish Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, commented: "Globalization Partners will invest tens of millions of euro in its new technology centre in Galway, where its workforce is expected to grow to more than 100 people over the next three years.

    "These jobs have been backed by the Government through IDA Ireland. We will be working hard to secure further investment for all parts of Ireland, as the economy recovers from the damage caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic."
