IBM announces 150 jobs at new Digital Delivery Centre in Dublin

13 Nov 2017

Recruitment for a number of exciting new roles on offer at IBM’s Irish base will begin immediately.

Multinational technology company IBM has revealed today (13 November) that there will be 150 new highly skilled digital roles made available at its technology campus at Damastown Industrial Park in Mulhuddart, Dublin 15.

IBM is seeking apprentices, graduates, postgraduates and experienced professionals at all levels.

The positions will be created over the next two years and include openings for business strategists, creatives and designers, data scientists, and technology specialists.

The news comes along with the announcement of a new IBM Digital Delivery Centre, which will be opened at the company’s Dublin campus. This centre will include an Irish IBM iX studio, which will provide collaborative spaces and support the country’s clients in adapting to an increasingly digital world.

“IBM Digital Delivery Centre in Dublin has been created to support our clients in Ireland and to leverage existing and emerging digital technologies in order to create a better tomorrow for their customers,” said Paul Murphy, IBM’s global services leader in Ireland.

The new centre will provide design and implementation skills across a number of different digital technologies, including AI, data insights, machine learning, internet of things and cloud.

Speaking at the announcement, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD, said: “Technology and design are vital to Ireland’s growth, and I want Ireland to be an adopter of new technologies as we prepare for the changes the future will bring.

“This new centre will contribute to Ireland’s reputation as a hub for businesses seeking strategic innovation and business design. It reflects IBM’s longstanding commitment to developing skills and providing high-value technology services to business in Ireland with the support of the Irish Government.”

IBM was founded in 1911 as the Computing-Tabulating-Recording-Company and was subsequently renamed International Business Machines (IBM) in 1924.

The company has since become one of the world’s largest employers, with recent counts indicating that the firm has a 380,000-strong workforce. It is one of 30 companies listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
