Irish firm Vistatec announces 50 new jobs at MWC

25 Feb 2016

One of the several Irish companies over at Mobile World Congress (MWC) at the moment, Vistatec has announced plans to hire 50 people globally to help with its growing business.

We noted 26 Irish companies that are over in Barcelona at MWC, and kept an eye on what was going down – however, we didn’t expect jobs to be announced by Vistatec.

The company has said it’s looking for 50 ‘localisation professionals’, spread globally but with the majority to be based in the company’s Dublin HQ.

We’ve reached out to find out how many of the 50 will be in Dublin and are waiting to hear back. Vistatec is looking to fill positions across a variety of functions, including linguistics, project management, sales and technology.

Vistatec is actually a long-standing success story on the Irish tech scene, having been established in 1997. The company specialises in localising content for brands: it takes brands’ content and translates and adapts it to ensure it will work and have the desired impact in the local market.

“The most compelling global brands rely on content every day to create captivating experiences for their customers,” said Siobhan Gantly, head of HR.

“At Vistatec, our teams take content, in any form, and align the intended impact with the most effective localisation methodology, so that the end user experience and outcome is consistent regardless of language or locale. This is something that requires exceptional people who understand what it takes to be successful on a global scale.”

The company has offices in Silicon Valley as well as here, working across a range of sectors, including life sciences, software and IT, and telecoms and mobile, and some of its biggest clients include Sony and Intel.
