IT management software firm Kaseya is to grow its Dublin workforce to a total of 160, following a €19m investment from ISIF.
Kaseya, a software firm which provides cloud-based IT management solutions to clients in more than 20 countries, has revealed today (15 November) that it intends to bring on 130 new employees.
Kaseya was founded in 2000 and opened its Dublin headquarters in July 2016 to increase its European business. The Dublin office was the most recent edition to the company’s European network, which comprises offices in London, Lausanne, Munich and The Hague.
Kaseya’s US headquarters is in Waltham, Massachusetts.
The organisation has already begun the recruitment process and is set to start hiring as early as next week, but anticipates that the process of growing its 30-strong Dublin office to 160 will take up to 18 months.
Kaseya is hiring across a number of positions, seeking software engineers, developers and testers as well as software development managers who would support the company’s R&D department. The firm is also hiring customer support staff, sales and sales management professionals, finance and accounting staff, and field engineers.
The jobs announcement comes after the Irish Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF) disclosed that it will invest €19m in Kaseya, as part of a wider funding round that will see the company raise more than €38m.
Kaseya also intends to launch a collaboration programme with third-level universities and institutes of technology throughout Ireland. This programme is set to mirror one that the company already has in place with US institutions, designed to grow a pipeline of highly skilled computer science graduates to meet talent requirements. The Irish programme will offer a range of internship opportunities and support for computer science courses across Ireland.
Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya, said: “We are delighted to continue to grow our Irish presence and to team up with ISIF as an investment partner.”
“Ireland is a great place to continue to develop our industry-leading software solutions. Our contribution to Ireland’s vibrant, dynamic software sector will help to bolster the country’s growing reputation as an IT leader, while creating significant additional value for our investors.”
