Software testing and quality consultancy SQS Software Quality Systems is creating 20 new jobs in Dublin. This latest expansion will see its workforce increase by almost 20pc to more than 120 employees.
The firm, which has established offices in Dublin and Belfast, is now looking to fill positions for experienced software quality engineers, software testing managers, performance engineers and software test analysts. In addition, SQS also runs a graduate recruitment programme involving overseas training at its South Africa training centre in Durban.
Operating in Ireland since 2002, SQS Ireland has continued its organic growth in Ireland due to increasing demand for independent, outsourced managed testing services with specialist skills.
There is now widespread acceptance that quality testing is a necessary strategic investment in any IT project and choosing the right people to carry out the work is critical.
SQS delivers software quality services to a range of customers in Ireland, including major financial institutions, telecommunications companies, Government bodies, high-tech and gaming.
“It is very much driven by the business needs and pipeline of activity that we are gearing up for in 2012," SQS Ireland managing director Phil Codd said about the expansion plans.
“These latest jobs being created by SQS Ireland are high-end specialist roles and will ideally suit professionals already working in the sector or those looking to transfer their relevant skill sets into a growth industry," Codd said.
For the 2010 financial year ended, SQS Software Quality Systems AG generated sales of €162.9m.
