Ryanair to create more than 150 tech roles in Ireland

30 Nov 2022

The airline will be recruiting in areas such as software development, security and infrastructure.

Ryanair will be hiring for more than 150 tech jobs in Ireland to help it embrace emerging technologies and drive digital transformation.

This will include roles in software development, security, infrastructure and operations, project planning and delivery and QA engineering.

The airline is holding an open evening for prospective employees at Ryanair Labs in Swords, Co Dublin, tomorrow evening (1 December).

Ryanair Labs is a tech hub tasked with transforming the digital experience of the company’s customers and advancing its internal systems.

The informal event this week will be an opportunity for those interested in working at Ryanair to find out what the company is doing in terms of its digital strategy, which includes its website and app, among other projects. The open event is free, but those interested can register on Ryanair’s Eventbrite page.

“Ryanair Labs are at the heart of what we do as a business, driving digital innovation and cutting-edge projects to support our wider operations as we grow to carry 225m passengers by 2026,” said Ryanair’s chief technology officer, John Hurley.

“Ryanair is a proud Irish employer supporting over 26,000 jobs annually and we are delighted to launch this major recruitment drive to fill over 150 exciting tech jobs in Ireland,” he added.

Earlier this year, Ryanair announced the creation of 200 “high-skill” jobs in Shannon, with a €10m investment in a new heavy maintenance facility.

The company said the site would support the maintenance of its growing aircraft fleet, and it was hiring for roles including engineers, mechanics and support workers.

More information on jobs available at Ryanair is available on its website. At Ryanair Labs in Dublin, the company is currently hiring for roles including Android developer, AWS administrator, cloud software developer and data scientist.
