Legato to double Limerick workforce to 120 people

Legato doubles Irish workforce as it officially opens R&D Hub in Limerick.

Legato Health Technologies is to create 60 new jobs in Limerick on top of 60 jobs it committed to in September.

The company this week officially opened its R&D Hub in the National Technology Park in Limerick.

“We are well on the way to filling our initial 60 posts announced in September and today’s announcement of a further 60 posts reflects the ambition we have for our R&D hub here in Limerick”

The additional jobs commitment, the company said, reflects growth intentions for the Limerick operations as well as the opportunity for talent to work in a cutting-edge environment focused on enhancing healthcare management and advancing predictive health.

The newly established Limerick base will be home to 120 high quality jobs across business analytics, data science, machine learning and product management.

Ambitious plans

“We are well on the way to filling our initial 60 posts announced in September and today’s announcement of a further 60 posts reflects the ambition we have for our R&D hub here in Limerick,” said John Shaw, country head of Legato Health Technologies.

“Legato is all about advancing technology to transform healthcare management and, in the process, improving lives. This is an opportunity for people who want to work on high-impact projects and we are thrilled to open our new R&D Hub here in Limerick. We look forward to working with stakeholders in the Mid-West and nationally as well as welcoming our new colleagues to help build this centre into a world leading innovation hub.”

The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

“We are looking for highly skilled colleagues to develop cutting edge data science and engineering technologies that can be applied to provide innovation and digital transformation for the healthcare sector,” said Rajat Puri, president of Legato Health Technologies.

“Today is a very important day for the development of our company and we look forward to expanding our Limerick base further over the coming years.”

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said that the expansion so soon after the September expansion exemplifies the highly skilled and talented workforce available in Ireland’s mid-west.

“IDA Ireland remains committed to winning jobs and investments in regional locations,” said Shanahan.
