Signify Health to create 125 new jobs with Galway tech centre

Technology-enabled services company employs about 2,000 people in the US

US healthcare platform Signify Health is to create 125 new jobs with the opening of a new technology centre in Galway.

The group, which leverages advanced analytics, technology and nationwide healthcare provider networks, said the new roles would come on stream during the next two years.

The centre – which will be located in Galway city – will drive technology innovation for Signify Health as it changes how US healthcare is paid for and delivered.

Signify Health was founded in 2017, and is a technology-enabled services company that aligns payers, providers and patients. It currently employs more than 2,000 people in the US.


It also has a national mobile network of about 10,000 credentialled physicians and nurse practitioners.

“The team at our Galway technology centre will be designing solutions that solve some of US healthcare’s most difficult and elusive problems,” said Josh Builder, chief technology officer.

“Our success will depend on being able to apply a diverse set of experiences to the challenges we face in enabling a patient-centric, cloud-based environment that brings healthcare wherever health happens,” he said.

“We know first-hand that Ireland is home to professionals who not only have the experience we need, but who are energised by opportunities to make a meaningful difference in healthcare, and we are excited to now also call the west of Ireland home.”

For its first phase of recruiting, Signify Health is seeking candidates to fill a range of roles in product management and software engineering as well as scrum masters.

IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan said: "Today's announcement is an endorsement of the high quality of talent available in Galway and the west region."

Minister for Enterprise Leo Varadkar said: “I’m really pleased Signify Health has chosen Galway city for its new technology centre. It’s a real boost to the city and will create over 125 new jobs by 2024.

“This investment is a testament to all Galway has to offer and the company can expect to draw from a deep pool of talent and expertise when recruiting for these new jobs. I wish the Signify Health team the very best in this exciting new chapter.”
