Irish IT services company Ammeon is to create 100 new high-skilled jobs in Dublin over the next 12 months.

Ammeon, which specialises in IT-based transformation projects, is expanding its DevOps and Cloud Centre of Excellence.

The company is looking for both experienced engineers and graduates for a wide variety of high-value IT roles, with a focus on the latest cloud and dev-ops skills. Of particular interest are candidates with experience in service delivery management, project management, cloud architectures and deployment.

Ammeon employs over 200 people, with the majority based in the company’s Dublin headquarters and a smaller number in its UK offices. Last November, the company hired an additional 30 IT professionals in the areas of software development, test automation and dev-ops.

Ammeon’s rapid growth

Founded in 2003, Ammeon has been growing rapidly in recent years, with turnover increasing by 25pc year-on-year since 2009. Clients include global network equipment providers, communication service providers across EMEA, media, transportation and government organisations.

“This is another very significant expansion of Ammeon’s workforce and capabilities and follows the creation of 30 new jobs last November,” CEO Fred Jones said.

“On the back of continued strong growth in demand for our cutting-edge services, we are growing this DevOps and Cloud Centre of Excellence in Ireland. We are looking to add 100 talented engineers and IT professionals to help us make this happen.”

“We have built the largest indigenous team of professional service consultants focused on IT-based transformation projects and we are at the beginning of a significant international expansion. We enable our customers deliver their software and services in a faster, more cost-effective way to their customers.

“We use agile methodologies, continuous integration and delivery, and open-source cloud technologies like OpenStack, to help our customers develop and launch products and services faster, accelerating service development and delivery,” Jones said.

Ammeon’s expansion is supported by Enterprise Ireland.

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton, TD, said: “After creating an additional 30 new jobs so far this year, I warmly welcome their plans to now grow their workforce by another 100. These hires will help drive the company’s ambitious plans for further international growth and I wish Fred and his colleagues the best of luck in their efforts.”
