Infosys is set to double its workforce in Ireland, with the creation of a 95-strong R&D facility along with a separate IT support site.
Infosys’ expansion will be driven by its first dedicated product-centric R&D facility outside India, with a second Irish facility to provide IT services to Infosys clients.
The roles to be filled at the R&D facility are “highly skilled”, established by EdgeVerve Systems, the product subsidiary of Infosys.
Here, staff will focus on fintech R&D, with the company operating an “open innovation model”, which will see staff work closely with customers, technology partners, academic institutions and the start-up community in areas of technology such as blockchain and analytics.
At the support site, employees will provide technology services to Infosys’ clients – work will include high-end IT consulting, business analytics, business processing and customer service.
Infosys jobs ahoy
Infosys’ current Irish workforce is made up of its original staff, as well as those who transferred from AIB to the Infosys Booterstown facility back in July.
“Much like Ireland, Infosys has based its growth on a foundation of education, lifelong learning and a deep commitment to innovation,” says Dr Vishal Sikka, CEO and MD of Infosys .
“Infosys is already working with clients in Ireland, helping them explore new ways of working and advancing, by embracing technology-led innovation. We want to build on this early success.
“With an ecosystem of like-minded partners in Ireland, we will pursue new ideas and new ways to solve the greatest challenges of our times – the important things that only human imagination and ingenuity can achieve.”
