Crossvale, a US software firm based in Dallas, will open a new centre in Belfast creating 12 software engineering jobs.
Crossvale, established in 2001, develops integrated software and professional services solutions, for financial services, telecoms and retail customers.
Now, the company has revealed that it is looking to expand operations from a new base in Northern Ireland, creating 12 software engineering roles in the process.
This brings its total global offices to three, as well as its headquarters in Dallas, Texas and in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Crossvale CEO Conor Brankin is very familiar with the Northern Ireland market having started his working career with BT in the region in 1992, after graduating from the University of Manchester with a BEng in electrical and electronic engineering.
Roles filled by end of 2017
The newly created jobs are expected to be rolled out over the next two years with the majority of roles to be in place by the end of 2017.
Welcoming the company to Northern Ireland, Alastair Hamilton, chief executive of Invest NI, said: “Once again it is the availability of high-quality software engineers that has attracted this US company to Northern Ireland. This, combined with low staff turnover, low costs and Invest NI support has secured this mobile project and the new developer roles for Northern Ireland.”
“Invest NI has offered the company support towards the new jobs, helping to leverage nearly £500,000 of investment in the economy through annual salaries.”
Adding to this sentiment, Brankin said: “Our new engineering centre in Belfast will support our company’s growth and help service both our existing US clients, as well new clients in the UK, Republic of Ireland and the Middle East.”
