NS1 decision to locate in Cork is a major step to further company’s global presence.
Supporting billions of users, apps and devices across the planet, US tech firm NS1 is to hire at least 30 computer engineers at its new operation in Cork.
NS1 is scaling up its cloud-based NS1 Connect platform which orchestrates all the critical control points to understand, automate, and secure every digital interaction.
“When locations for expansion were initially explored by NS1, Cork was top of the list for me based on the incredible success I’ve had establishing centers of excellence here in the past”
This project has been supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Centre of excellence
A key component of NS1’s expansion is building an engineering centre of excellence, where NS1 can access and grow local talent interested in challenging work and in making a meaningful impact to the evolution of the company’s products.
The company said that Ireland stood out as an exceptional source of skilled, diverse and passionate talent, well-versed in cloud development and innovation.
“When locations for expansion were initially explored by NS1, Cork was top of the list for me based on the incredible success I’ve had establishing centers of excellence here in the past,” said David Coffey, chief product officer at NS1.
“The type of talent I’ve seen in the Cork market aligns perfectly with our expansion strategy as we build products at a scale to meet global demand.”
NS1 supports a hybrid working model, with remote work options available, but is also securing office space in Cork City that will provide an innovative, highly collaborative work environment.
As NS1 expands its EMEA presence, complementing its sales-focused London team, Ireland will serve as a hub for future hires throughout Europe. Growing the Ireland site is targeted to grow NS1’s global engineering presence, working in close collaboration with other sites in the United States and Vietnam.
“The decision by NS1 to establish in Cork City is terrific news and a welcome addition to the South West region’s strong technology cluster,” said IDA Ireland’s head of Regional Business Development Ray O’Connor.
“Winning jobs and investment in regional locations continues to be a priority for IDA Ireland. I wish NS1 every success with this expansion.”
