Silicon Valley digital transformation player and brand shaper Pivotal is to create 130 new jobs in Dublin and Cork as part of a €100m investment over the next few years.

The 130 jobs will be created across its brand new Pivotal Labs office in Dublin and its current operations in Cork.

The move will see Pivotal expand its presence across EMEA and create a software innovation hub to help transform its traditional enterprise customers into modern software companies that can compete in the digital era.

Silicon Valley-headquartered Pivotal is partially owned by EMC and VMware, with General Electric becoming an investor in May 2013.

Silicon Valley’s Pivotal brand influencer

Pivotal Labs, a business unit of Pivotal, has been credited with shaping the development culture of Silicon Valley’s most influential and valuable brands. Its Agile software development approach brings start-up speeds, predictable software methodology, and iterative product development culture to Ireland’s largest enterprises.

Pivotal works with many of the world’s most admired brands, such as AllState, BMW, Comcast, GE and Verizon, as well as having a deep heritage working with many of the world’s most valuable internet companies.

The €100m investment will result in recruitment for full-time software engineering, technical support, operational and general and administrative roles. Initially, Pivotal will be based at DogPatch Labs at the chq Building in the IFSC.

“The continued rapid development of Dublin’s tech scene makes it the perfect location for further investment by Pivotal,” said Kevin Flanagan, head of Pivotal in Ireland.

“It is a hotbed of talent, innovation and exciting ideas that we are looking forward to playing a central role in. Pivotal Labs will quickly become a software innovation hub for Dublin’s largest enterprises in all industries and will help transform them into great software companies.”
