Data flow specialist Axway is to create 15 software engineering jobs in Dublin, where it is expanding its R&D Centre of Excellence.
The Centre of Excellence will be Axway’s global hub for its API Gateway research and development.
APIs (application interface programming) are the DNA of the next generational shift in technology; cloud, mobile, social and the internet of things will all be built using APIs.
Axway, on foot of its acquisition late last year of Irish company Vordel, is a leader in the development of API management technology.
With 11,000 customers in more than 100 countries, Axway manages, runs, secures and monitors business interactions across on-premises, cloud, and mobile.
Dublin’s world-class software engineering population
“There is a world-class software engineering population in Ireland and we want to recruit from this talent pool,” said Laurent Bride, executive vice-president of Research & Development, Axway.
“Dublin, in particular, is globally acknowledged as a hub of engineering excellence and we will be looking to recruit senior engineering staff for our R&D centre.
“Engineers joining us will be working on some of the latest computing technologies as we evolve Axway’s enterprise software portfolio, to ensure we are at the forefront of the cloud and mobile innovation curve.”
IDA Ireland chief executive Barry O’Leary said the investment reinforces Ireland as the leading location for software companies to support and service customers in the EMEA region.
Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Minister Richard Bruton, TD, added: “Axway’s decision to expand its R&D Centre of Excellence and create 15 high quality jobs is a clear indication of Ireland’s importance as a key location for technology companies to expand and grow their business.”
