23 Aug 2016

Exaxe, a software as a service (SaaS) provider based in Dublin, has announced plans to hire 20 new staff over the course of the next two years following a successful 2015.

Operating since 1997, Exaxe is a provider of software for the life and pensions industry with its headquarters in Ireland, but additional offices in the UK and the Netherlands.

Now, following a successful 2015 in which it achieved a 44pc increase in its revenues, the company has announced that it has plans to create at least 20 jobs in Ireland over the course of the next two years.

Exaxe’s head of operations, Ian Dornan, has said the new roles will be created for business analysts, test engineers and .NET developers.

Discussing its recent success, Exaxe said that, in the past 12 months, it has secured contracts with AXA Life Invest, Aviva and Police Mutual.

It also added that it will be announcing the securing of another pension company in the near future.

Speaking of the company’s past year, Dornan said: “We are thrilled to be coming to the Irish marketplace with a job creation announcement as we grow in headcount to keep up with the expansion of our business.”

Adding to this, Philip Naughton, the company’s executive director of business development, said: “We have had a great performance over the last 12 months, signing new clients both at home and abroad, along with numerous industry awards recognising the work we do for our customers.

“The significant growth in revenue and business opportunities has allowed us to create new jobs in Ireland.”
