Belfast SaaS start-up Regtick to create 30 new tech jobs

28 Feb 2022

Regtick is looking to expand its tech team in Northern Ireland following a £1m investment from Newry entrepreneur Tom O’Gorman.

Belfast-based tech start-up Regtick plans to create 30 new jobs following the closure of its £1m seed funding round.

Roles currently available on the company’s website include a senior DevOps engineer, senior front-end developer and senior back-end developer. These positions come with work-from-home and hybrid options.

Future Human

Regtick has created a governance, risk and compliance platform for the financial services, health and insurance sectors. It uses visually intuitive technology to help clients keep track of their complex regulatory and compliance programmes.

The platform was designed for organisations with distributed teams, aiming to help team members from all locations to collaborate together and save time.

Regtick’s co-founder and CEO, Gary Lyons, said the fresh funding would enable the company to grow its tech team and develop new products for its clients. This includes building out its real-time risk management and analytics tools and to facilitate R&D.

The seed funding came courtesy of Newry businessman Tom O’Gorman, who has now joined the start-up’s team as its chairperson.

Lyons said that O’Gorman would bring “considerable business acumen and experience” to its management team.

“We now look forward to accelerating our discussions with customers in our target global export markets and we are very much looking forward to exporting Regtick’s SaaS platform across the world stage,” Lyons added.

He also paid tribute to Invest NI, Techstart NI and Regtick’s legal team at Shoosmiths for their support and guidance.

Lyons co-founded Regtick with fellow Northern Ireland native Gerry Murtagh, who serves as the company’s chief technology officer.

Last November, Regtick was one of several start-ups that competed as part of a pitch event organised by Startacus, centred around the future of work and hybrid working.
