Irish software developer Cora Systems to create 300 new jobs

Firm seeks new staff in Ireland and US after winning €60m worth of new business

Irish software developer Cora Systems plans to create 300 new jobs to serve €60 million worth of new business won since the start of this year.

Based in Carrick on Shannon, Cora's software allows businesses including builders, engineers and manufacturers to manage big programmes and projects.

The company confirmed on Tuesday that it intends to create 300 jobs across its Irish headquarters and its US offices in Atlanta, Georgia.

Cora will add 100 jobs by the end of this year and about 200 by 2024, the company said.

The new posts will be split 50/50 between its Irish and US offices. They will include jobs in research and development, global sales and marketing.

Supply chain bottlenecks that emerged as the pandemic began receding last year boosted demand for Cora’s software.

New business

The company has won €60 million worth of new business since January, while it has grown by 330 per cent over the past 12 months.

Founder and chief executive Philip Martin said it invested €10 million in its people and products during the pandemic, aiding its current growth.

He explained that the ongoing changes to supply chains have cost many large enterprises “hundreds of millions” in cash.

“Cora streamlines and centralises all the data required to help our clients deliver their projects on time and on budget,” Mr Martin said.

Clients manage more than than $100 billion worth of projects on Cora’s systems every day, the company said.

Customers include Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Automated Logic, Honeywell and the UK's National Health Service.
