Galway tech firm Joulica confirms plans to more than double its staff

11 Feb 2019

Galway-based tech firm Joulica will bring its total headcount up to 70 to serve new product development opportunities in the US and Europe.

Irish-born tech start-up Joulica has today (February 11) confirmed plans to expand its Galway operations and create 45 jobs. This will bring the firm’s total headcount up to 70.

It is seeking applicants with expertise in software, data analytics and business development to serve new product development opportunities in the US and Europe.

The announcement was made today at Joulica’s headquarters at National University of Ireland in Galway by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys, TD, alongside Joulica CEO Tony McCormack and Enterprise Ireland regional entrepreneurship manager Mark Christal.

The new roles are supported by the Irish Government through Enterprise Ireland’s Research, Development and Innovation Fund.

Joulica, which was founded in 2016, provides software to global contact centres that enables them to extract data insights from real-time data streams both on private and public clouds.

Joulica supports visualisation, workflow and data exploration features. It specialises in ingesting high-volume data streams and producing real-time analytical dashboards and actions. Its services can be leveraged across a broad swathe of industries including customer experience, financial services, telecommunications and healthcare.

“Today marks a significant landmark for Joulica and demonstrates the depth of talent available to innovative technology start-ups establishing R&D centres in Galway city,” commented McCormack. “The success we have enjoyed to date is a testament to the world-class talent and exceptional skills of the Joulica team, together with the unwavering support provided by Enterprise Ireland, our advisers and mentors.

“From its inception, Joulica has been fortunate to work with global customers who are at the forefront of the digital transformation revolution. This opportunity, combined with a deep understanding of the requirements that enterprise customers place on high-scale, resilient software solutions, gives Joulica a unique edge when it comes to accelerating innovation in large-scale enterprises.”

Christal added: “Innovation and being competitive is crucial for Irish start-ups to grow and build scale, both here and on an international level. It is becoming increasingly clear that businesses are facing uncertainties and challenges that could impact their growth, and Joulica is an excellent example of a company that has stayed on the pulse and identified solutions to allow them to scale in international markets and realise their global ambition.”
