US firm Anaqua to establish NI Engineering Hub creating 15 jobs

  • Boston headquartered Anaqua, an innovation and intellectual property (IP) management technology provider, is investing in Northern Ireland for the first time and creating a 15-person European Engineering Hub. 

    Anaqua delivers innovative workflow solutions for corporations and law firms around the world through its core IP management software platforms, AQX® and PATTSY WAVE®, and its innovation management offering, ideaPoint.

    Erik Reeves, Anaqua CTO, said: “With a growing global client base, we require an expanded, highly skilled workforce to develop software to meet their evolving needs. We are excited by the software engineering skills on offer in Northern Ireland, from graduate level upwards, which will enable us to develop a centre of engineering excellence and strengthen our competitive advantage in global markets."

    Along with its Boston headquarters, Anaqua has offices across the US, Europe and Asia.

    Erik continued: “The Belfast hub will also enable us to expand our capabilities and flexible options for international teamwork so that we can continue servicing our clients 24/7. It is an important expansion of our global engineering and quality assurance network, which spans multiple time zones from the US West Coast all the way to India.”

    This investment for Northern Ireland and the creation of the 15 jobs has been secured by Invest NI.

    Anne Beggs, Director of Trade and Investment, Invest NI, said: “The Department for the Economy’s 10X Economic Vision highlights Digital & ICT as a strategic cluster that will help drive the NI economy forward, and we are delighted to welcome Anaqua to be part of that ambitious vision. Our teams in the US and Northern Ireland have worked closely with Anaqua to provide expert business advice and secure this investment for Northern Ireland, instead of one of the company’s existing locations."

    Ms Beggs added: “It is great to see a range of roles available with Anaqua, utilising a variety of expertise at all levels that may also prove attractive to those seeking to return or relocate to Northern Ireland for exciting career opportunities."

    This support is part funded by the Department for Economy Economic Recovery Action Plan.
