DevOps tech company Gearset to hire 15 software engineers in Belfast

15 Mar 2022

Gearset, which provides DevOps tools for Salesforce customers, is looking for software engineers at a new Belfast base.

UK tech company Gearset plans to create 15 jobs in Belfast with the opening of a new office in the city.

The company will recruit a team of 15 software engineers in 2022 for its Belfast office, which will open in April. It will initially hire five software engineers, with 10 more roles to be advertised and filled by the end of the year.

Founded in 2015 by Redgate Software, Gearset offers DevOps tools for customers using Salesforce. Its clients include Accenture, IBM, TripAdvisor and Johnson & Johnson.

The company currently employs around 150 people in its offices in Chicago, Belfast and its UK headquarters in Cambridge.

Belfast was chosen for the location of its new software engineering facility due to the region’s talent pool and status as a growing tech hub. Gearset co-founder and CEO Kevin Boyle also has a connection to the city, having received his master’s in computer science in 2009 from Queen’s University Belfast.

Gearset’s head of engineering, Luke Drury, said that the company had “recognised an amazing calibre of engineering talent in the Belfast tech ecosystem,” adding that he and his team are excited to work with “more like-minded engineers who are as passionate about software development as we are.”

Gearset’s Belfast hub will be led by Eamonn Boyle, who has more than 15 years of experience as a software engineer and trainer for Belfast-based software companies.

“We’re confident that Eamonn will bring the right blend of leadership, enthusiasm and software development experience needed to attract and retain the top talent we need to continue our rapid growth and deliver great customer experiences within the Salesforce DevOps market,” Drury said.

Job openings can be found on the company’s website.
