PTC, a firm focused on Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, is to create 50 new jobs in Dublin by the end of 2018.
The company is to establish a new research and development (R&D) office in Dublin in an investment supported by IDA Ireland.
Among the initial positions available are roles for DevOps engineers, cloud architects and security architects.
This is not PTC’s first investment in Ireland. The PTC academic programme is already part of the curriculum in academic institutions such as Trinity College Dublin, DIT, ITT Dublin, GMIT, AIT and University of Limerick, all of which teach the firm’s 3D modelling software solution, Creo.
“This is a strong vote of confidence in Ireland and in the skills of the Irish workforce. Ireland has developed extensive expertise in ICT generally, particularly in software development. We have a very strong position in a range of IT specialities and we are very much aware that the Internet of Things, involving a world of connected devices, represents a new wave of potential and of growth opportunities,” said the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor.
