100 new jobs announced for tech firm eBecs

12 Jun 2018

Tech company eBecs, which specialises in delivering Microsoft business applications, is expanding its presence in Ireland.

Award-winning Microsoft gold partner company eBecs is expanding its Irish operations, creating 100 remote-working jobs in the process.

The company specialises in delivering Microsoft applications and first established operations in Ireland in 2016, serving its clients across the island and the UK.

The new jobs will be spread across Microsoft-certified professionals and both its graduate and return-to-work programme, with eBecs offering the flexibility for its employees to work remotely.

Its returnship programme reaches out to those who have been unemployed for at least 18 months, giving them a chance to re-enter the market.

Speaking at the launch, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys, TD, said: “I am delighted to see the creation of 100 highly skilled new jobs by eBecs.”

Humphreys spoke highly of the unique business model that allows eBecs staff members to work from anywhere in the country. “This is a really exciting, innovative company which is paving the way for more flexible and family-friendly forms of working, and I wish them well for the future,” she said.

‘Ireland is a significant market’

Sam Dharmasiri, eBecs sales director, is looking forward to continued success in both the UK and Ireland.

“Ireland is a significant market for eBecs, so I am delighted that eBecs have decided to further expand operations in Ireland,” Dharmasiri said. “I really appreciate the support of the IDA.”

The company’s Ireland country manager, James Finnegan, said that eBecs has been excited about the capabilities of its existing staff in Ireland.

“We are now looking to accelerate the hiring of additional talent from Ireland,” Finnegan said. “We feel the ability for our staff to work from home, or anywhere within Ireland, provides staff with a unique work-life balance.”

As well as being a specialist in total Microsoft business solutions, eBecs is also part of DXC Technology, a leading independent IT services company, delivering agile solutions for customers globally.

This announcement adds to the growing number of tech jobs revealed this week in Ireland, including Eventbrite’s expansion in Cork and STATS’ plans to employ 150 people in Limerick by 2020.
