Digital menu builder Promo Pads to create 60 jobs in Kildare

15 Jun 2017

Promo Pads, a company that produces digital menus for businesses, is to create 60 jobs at its office in Kildare.

Restaurant chains – particularly those in fast food – are gravitating towards the digital realm with the use of interactive menus and ordering systems.

Irish company Promo Pads is looking to expand further into this space, with plans to create 60 jobs at its office in Newbridge, Co Kildare.

Future Human

Having just opened the premises last month, the company said that with support from the Kildare Local Enterprise Office, it aims to fill the positions over the next three years.

The recruitment drive aims to boost Promo Pads’ software development capabilities, with the roles focused on technology development – primarily software and electronic engineering – with additional positions in sales, marketing and customer technical support.

Diarmaid Murphy, CEO of Promo Pads, commented: “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Promo Pads’ launch than with a commitment to growth.

“I look forward to welcoming new team members and I am so excited for the successes that are yet to come!

“Kildare offers us access to high-quality broadband infrastructure, Dublin-oriented road infrastructure, access to public transport and access to the highest-calibre people living in every direction. Locating in Kildare was an easy decision; it’s a win-win for the company, our staff and the local area.”

Beginning trials soon

Speaking with the Irish Times earlier this month, Murphy explained that the company’s business model was initially based around earning revenue through advertising on the digital menus it provides. He went so far as to say it is trying to overhaul the digital advertising model.

Promo Pads will soon launch its first pilot system in Dublin, with plans to spread out to the rest of Ireland and the UK after September.
