DataStax, a US-based data management IT company, is to create 30 jobs in Cork with the opening of its first office in Ireland.
The California-based company, which was founded in 2010, currently has over 500 employees based in multiple US and international locations.
The move into Ireland is a chance for DataStax to expand its back-office operations and opens the possibility for attracting a wider range of talent in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe the company said.
“Our investment in Ireland is further reflection of the reputation held by Ireland in terms of the talent and resources available and will be a key foundation of DataStax’s further growth in both US and international markets” Niall Cotter of DataStax said.
Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney T.D. described the announcement as “a vote of confidence in Cork’s business ecosystem.”
The move is supported by IDA Ireland, with Mary Buckley, director of IDA Ireland, saying that Cork’s tech infrastructure, talent pool, and supportive academic network has “created a compelling business environment which continues to attract investment from overseas companies in the technology sector.”
Among the companies that DataStax works with are Comcast, eBay, McDonald’s, Microsoft, Safeway, Sony, UBS, and Walmart.
