Software company Global Shares to bring 80 new jobs to Clonakilty, Cork

17 Apr 2015

Global Shares is investing in a three-year plan that will see its Irish workforce more than double, following the company’s successful opening of a London office at the start of the year.

An Irish-owned software company, Global Shares is based in Clonakilty where it currently employs 60 staff in high-skilled roles, including software development, QA, CEP analysts and project management.

The company is forecasting significant growth in its business, which will see the employee numbers more than double there in the next three years.

“We have grown substantially in the last two years and we have shaped our business for this expansion,” said Tim Houstoun, CEO of Global Shares.

The company develops innovative software solutions for companies to “automate the administration of their employee equity plans.”

The new jobs require space, so the Clonakilty HQ will be expanded accordingly to accommodate both this jobs announcement and future ones down the line.

“Our new equity compensation management solutions are first-class and our mission now is to communicate the strength and depth of our software and service offering to global markets.

“We look forward to growing our market presence in the coming years and to adding to the fantastic team of people who work at Global Shares.”
