Recruitment drive reflects growing demand for digital transformation services.

Microsoft digital enterprise consultancy Storm Technology is to create 60 new jobs at its Dublin and Galway operations.

The move comes as more organisations want to optimise their investment in digital technologies to save money, increase efficiency and drive growth.

‘We have been successfully achieving double-digit growth over the past five years and our plans are to double that over the next three years’

The new positions, supported by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland, are across many areas of the business and include opportunities for senior managers, digital business consultants, change management experts and software professionals.

“It is a testament to the vision and hard work of everyone in Storm Technology that this indigenous Irish company has grown to be one of Ireland’s most respected business technology consultancies, working with well-known and respected local and global brands in Ireland and internationally,” said An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald, TD.

“I look forward to continued engagement with Storm Technology and wish them well as they scale their business in international markets.”
