Tech Jobs – Lumension: part of Galway’s innovation hub

3 Jun 2011

Global endpoint management and security solutions provider Lumension is one of many ICT companies looking to hire new staff in the Galway region.

The Galway office of global endpoint management and security solutions provider Lumension is looking to fill six new positions following the recent launch of a new technology partly developed there for its corporate clients.

Called Intelligent Whitelisting, this technology is revolutionary and quite unique in the marketplace, according to Ciaran Kelly, director of R&D at Lumension.

“Intelligent Whitelisting is the industry’s first application control solution that increases endpoint security effectiveness without impacting business productivity. It is an exciting new technology that developers want to work on.”

Lumension is recruiting two junior software developers, two inside sales representatives, a software engineer C++ and a software engineer in test (automation).

What type of employee is Lumension seeking?

“At Lumension, employees are given a platform that is challenging and affords significant creativity. Employees focus on delivering the best-of-breed technologies and, likewise, we strive to hire, train and retain the highest quality employees in the industry,” says Kelly.

“Lumension is now looking for additional team members who want to work on a variety of new projects, with an emphasis on creativity, innovation and results. We need tenacious problem solvers that are able to work well with other highly talented individuals. In particular, we focus on hiring junior developers with an eye to growing our future talent stream and to ensure that there are different career opportunities and career paths available.”

The worldwide headquarters of Lumension are in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the company has 300 employees around the world at its operations in London, Luxembourg, Singapore, France, Germany and Australia. There are 40 employees in Galway and this number is growing.

There has been recent growth in recruitment activity of the many ICT companies operating in Galway, Kelly notes.

“Lumension chose to open the office here in 2009 largely because Galway is a vibrant economy with technological innovation at many levels and close proximity to the university.

“Over the last two years, our product research and development functions have flourished, thanks to the availability of talented developers locally and nationally. While many ICT companies will be competing for the existing resources available in the market, the ongoing demand for certain specialised skill sets will have a long-term positive effect. More and more new candidates will be attracted into Galway as the innovation hub expands. This will also benefit Lumension as the company continues to expand.”
