Company communications tech developer Newsweaver has announced it’s to create 60 new jobs in its R&D division at its Cork HQ, which will almost double its staff numbers.

Founded in 2002, Newsweaver has been particularly successful the last number of years following the release of its internal communications software called Internal Connect in 2012 and it now caters to clients including Rolls-Royce, Vodafone, Kellogg’s, Experian and Aon Hewitt.

Now, the company says, it aims to double the number of developers it employs as it grows its international customer base, which will almost double its numbers in Cork from 80 employees now, to 140 in two years’ time when it finishes the hiring process.

Having already begun recruitment for software developers, Newsweaver says it will also be recruiting across other key business areas of customer support, marketing, technical support, and sales in Ireland, as well as the US.

The company has received considerable industry recognition recently, having been named as one of Ireland’s best ICT companies by the Irish Exporters Association, as well as being ranked in the top 300 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe and the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for five years in a row.

Speaking of the announcement, Newsweaver’s chief executive, Andrew O’Shaughnessy, said: “Our global blue-chip customer base is continuing to grow rapidly, and we are preparing to launch very exciting and innovative products that will underpin our position as the world’s No 1 in internal communications.

“We need to support that growth and expansion by attracting the best talent that is out there, people who want to be part of an entrepreneurial, innovative, hard-working and ambitious company.”
