KEMP Technologies To Recruit 50 People
Jobs minister Richard Bruton has announced that 50 new high end technology based positions will be created over the next three years by US software company KEMP Technologies at its EMEA HQ in Limerick.
The company which has seven offices worldwide, with Limerick heading up the EMEA region, is a global leader in the development of the most advanced load balancers in the world that enable all types of SMEs and global groups to optimise their e-commerce and online traffic capabilities, such as online banking, email, web and cloud based applications.
The new jobs will bolster the company's operations in software R+D, quality assurance, CRM, marketing and operations. So far KEMP has hired 90% of their work experience students from surrounding third level colleges.
CEO Ray Downes said: “Since the first investment, the intervening three years has seen an almost five times worldwide revenue growth and headcount increase. Our international business is now 45% of global revenues. Having recently raised expansion capital to take us through the next number of years it was an easy decision to build on the talent and leadership pool we already have based in Limerick.”
Advanced load balancers prevent potential online crash catastrophes. Since its establishment in Limerick, the Limerick team have expanded operations into 55 countries and are now exporting into emerging markets such as Japan, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
KEMP's clients include Audi, Hyundai, McMillan Cancer Research, English FA and RTE. The company's target market includes small-to-medium sized businesses, Fortune 1000 enterprises, remote enterprise branch offices, managed service providers and public sector clients. (01/04/14)
