If you’re in the market for a new job or simply interested in exploring your options, check out this list of companies hiring.

Curious about the companies hiring across the island of Ireland at the moment? We’ve listed some of the businesses currently on the lookout for new joiners, from cybersecurity to telecoms and video game development.

Make sure you catch up with last month’s hiring list too, which featured Amgen, BearingPoint, MSD and Qualcomm.


Cybersecurity is a hugely important sector and the recent impacts of Covid-19 have only made that more evident. In Belfast, US cybersecurity company Cygilant has announced plans to create 65 positions at its new security operations centre, with roles across security operation centre engineering and cybersecurity advisory.

Cygilant’s CEO, Rob Scott, said that this marks the company’s first venture into the European market, and Belfast was chosen for its “incredibly skilled talent pool, strong academic links and the accessibility of the city within Europe”. Learn more about jobs at Cygilant here.


Another critical industry at the moment is telecoms. Having recently been contracted to survey and design the National Broadband Plan network, Kilkenny-headquartered telecoms firm Entegro has embarked on a recruitment drive.

The company is hiring for network-design engineers, experienced surveyors and trainees, all of which will help the company survey and design fibre-optic networks across Ireland. Check out the open vacancies at Entegro here.

With people around the world transitioning to working from home in recent months, remote jobs have been a hot topic. An organisation that has been advocating for remote work in Ireland for many years is Grow Remote and it’s now looking to expand its team.

Currently, Grow Remote is recruiting for a general manager who will “evangelise remote”, build on the company’s operational plans and hire and manage a team of two, among other duties. Find out more here.
