SPSS Ireland has rebranded itself as Presidion and plans to expand to the UK and recruit 20 graduates in Ireland over the next three years.
The analytics software and services company was established in Dublin in the mid-Nineties and has since become IBM’s biggest partner for predictive analytics. It services more than 500 accounts and thousands of customers in Ireland.
The company celebrated its rebranding by announcing it will expand into the UK and will begin a graduate programme which will hire 20 people in Ireland over the next three years.
Most of the roles on offer will be analytics consultants for those with a maths and statistics background and analytics account managers for those with market and business degrees.
“Presidion exemplifies the type of companies that will be central to Ireland’s economic recovery. It is a company that is at the forefront of innovation, creating the software services of tomorrow, opening new markets, and securing economic growth and jobs,” said John Perry, TD, minister of State for Small Business.
“It is innovation that will drive the productivity growth that will push our economy to new levels and create new jobs for our people. I believe that companies like Presidion are essential for fostering the climate of innovation in Ireland and translating Irish entrepreneurial ambition into market-focused reality,” he said.
