Nasuni creates 55 new engineering jobs in Cork

Nasuni Corporation chooses to locate Innovation Centre in Cork as part of international expansion.

File data services player Nasuni Corporation is to create up to 55 new senior engineering jobs over the next three years in Cork.

This will be Nasuni’s first innovation centre and its fourth office including its headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts, USA and additional offices in Marlborough, Massachusetts, USA, and Cary, North Carolina, USA. The company is also expanding its presence in Germany, Benelux and London as part of its global expansion.

“Ireland is known for its well-educated software talent pool as well as the number and variety of its technology hubs”

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

“With up to 55 jobs planned, Nasuni is placing a significant vote of confidence in Cork and further demonstrates our competitive position in attracting Foreign Direct Investment,” said Taoiseach Michéal Martin TD. “I am delighted that Nasuni chose to locate its Innovation Centre in Cork as part of its global expansion.”

Nasuni has also hired Derek Murphy as vice-president of Engineering, EMEA. Derek is an experienced head of engineering with experience at multinational enterprise companies including Forcepoint, McAfee, Intel, and Apple. 

The right stuff

“We are looking for the right talent to fill senior, ‘greenfield development’ positions, cloud and analytics focused. This is high-value work, crucial to our business, and we are convinced we will find the right candidates in Ireland,” said Murphy.

With the rising threat to business from cyberattacks, Nasuni believes it is more important than ever that the entire IT ecosystem of an enterprise—its suppliers, partners, and managed service providers – offer the highest standards of security and risk management. Enterprises benefit from Nasuni services to achieve cost-efficient, multi-site primary file storage capacity, fast access over standard file sharing protocols and the ability to recover files systems after a ransomware attack in minutes; all for less than the cost of traditional on-premises file infrastructure.

“Nasuni is committed to Ireland, and we have already incorporated Nasuni Ireland Ltd,” said Paul Flanagan, CEO of Nasuni.

“The country is known for its well-educated software talent pool as well as the number and variety of its technology hubs. Together with the strong support and relationship with the IDA and the diversity of the region, Ireland has a track record as a place to invest, and one that yields results. This will complement the success that Nasuni has in its centres of innovation and offices across the globe, continuing to offer the same level of trusted file data services in the region. Our vision is to expand the team to over 55 people over the next three years.”

Nasuni has a hybrid working arrangement in place across all its offices as it transitions out of COVID-19. The current expectation is that the Ireland site will also support hybrid working. As Nasuni Ireland scales and hires people, the company intends to open a physical facility in the near future.

Nasuni is hiring across all functions and locations in 2022.

“Nasuni’s investment comes at the right time, as remote work continues to create unprecedented challenges and cyber security is more important than ever for enterprises,” said IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan.

“The establishment of the EMEA Innovation Centre for Nasuni is a testament to the region’s highly-skilled and talented workforce and reinforces IDA Ireland’s mission to boost jobs and investment for regional locations.”
