New company Eir Evo to create 40 jobs, with more to be announced soon

3 Nov 2021

Eir Evo, formed following the merger of Eir Business and Evros, will provide a range of services such as cybersecurity and cloud technologies.

New company Eir Evo has said it plans to create 40 new highly skilled tech and IT roles. The company was formed following the merger of Eir Business and IT services provider Evros Technology Group.

Eir Evo currently has around 600 employees between the two businesses, with staff based around Ireland and New Zealand.

It is now looking for an additional 40 people to expand its workforce across the island of Ireland. Positions are available in IT security, cloud services and software development, and there will be additional roles added in the coming months.

“Irish businesses today need the power to evolve, to be more agile and flexible in how and where they do business. Eir Evo will drive technical freedom for our customers, not just by leveraging the latest technologies but through bespoke, intelligent implementation,” said Martin Wells, MD of Eir Evo.

Wells added that the newly formed company would “leverage the best of both” businesses for the “benefit of the Irish marketplace, across the whole island”.

“Our work matters to us and to thousands of organisations across Ireland. We want people to join our team who share this vision of elevating Irish businesses and giving them the power to adapt, grow and evolve,” Wells said.

Eir Evo will provide end-to-end service delivery and an expanded portfolio of services, including voice and collaboration, cybersecurity, networking, cloud technologies and managed services.

The company will be part of the wider Eir Group, which has around 2m customers. It has formed a new leadership team, including key personnel from both Eir Business and Evros.

Eir acquired Evros earlier this year in an €80m deal as part of its “ambitious investment strategy for Ireland”. Wells, who was then managing director of Eir Business, said at the time that the deal would create “Ireland’s largest Tier 1 telecoms and ICT provider”, serving SMEs, enterprise and Government organisations across the country.
