Consulting, technology, outsourcing and next-generation services company Infosys intends to create 250 new jobs over the next three years in Ireland to develop new technologies.
Infosys enables clients in more than 50 countries and employs more 187,000 people worldwide. The expansion at the company’s Irish base will see 95 roles created at its first dedicated product-centric research and development centre located outside India.
A second Irish facility to house up to 155 people will also be created to provide IT services to Infosys clients.
The roles at the R&D facility will be established by EdgeVerve Systems, the product subsidiary of Infosys, and will focus on fintech research and development.
Employees at the company’s new development centre will provide technology services to its global and Ireland-based clients in the financial services industry. The new roles are in addition to more than 250 employees that are already working for Infosys in Ireland.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD said: “I am delighted to welcome 250 new jobs at Infosys. This is a vote of confidence in Ireland, our great workforce and our reputation as a hub for technology and innovation. The Government wants to keep the recovery going by providing the right environment for companies like Infosys to locate, expand and create jobs.”
Dr Vishal Sikka, CEO and managing director, Infosys, commented: “Much like Ireland, Infosys has based its growth on a foundation of education, lifelong learning and a deep commitment to innovation. Infosys is already working with clients in Ireland helping them explore new ways of working and advancing, by embracing technology-led innovation. We want to build on this early success. With an ecosystem of like-minded partners in Ireland, we will pursue new ideas and new ways to solve the greatest challenges of our times – the important things that only human imagination and ingenuity can achieve.”
