Globalization Partners (G-P) to create 75 new technology roles

  • Economy Minister Gordon Lyons has announced that Globalization Partners (G-P), is to create a 75 person global technology team in Northern Ireland.

    Globalization Partners (G-P) is a remote first company that makes it fast, simple, and compliant for companies to hire anyone, anywhere. Its Global Employment Platform™ technology provides an end-to-end solution that includes recruitment management, onboarding, benefits administration, payroll, time and expense management and global help desk services, eliminating the need for subsidiaries or local branches.

    Minister Lyons said: “I visited G-P in Boston last month to meet with its senior executives and to see at first hand how they use its proprietary technology to deliver a full suite of services to its customers. I am now pleased to announce that they have selected Northern Ireland to expand its global tech team to sustain its business growth. Our highly educated workforce, underpinned by the high quality graduates from our universities and colleges, continues to be what attracts investment here.”

    The Minister added: “While the world is changing rapidly, we can still rely on Northern Ireland to be a great business location. This is at the heart of our economic vision – the 10x Economy – which sets out a bold plan to position Northern Ireland among the elite small advanced economies in the world.”

    Globalization Partners (G-P) plans to create the 75 new roles by mid-2024 and has already successfully recruited 25 of the new posts. Invest NI has offered support to the company towards the new roles, which will be released once posts are in place.

    Nat (Rajesh) Natarajan, Chief Product and Strategy Officer, G-P said: “As a technology first company, our engineering and development team is strategically significant, providing the platform on which our business operates. Our global technology team in Northern Ireland will lead on all future technical development projects for our business worldwide.”

    The company will provide engineering roles of varying skill levels, alongside support roles in UX, DevOps, testing and project management.
