Tech company Veritas is to create 250 new jobs by 2019 following the opening of a multimillion research and development centre in Dublin.

The firm, which deals in multi-cloud data management, said the new centre would contribute to its expansion in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Of the 250 new jobs, 130 will be filled within the next year. Veritas has already started recruiting for a wide array of positions.

The recruitment drive focuses on development roles from new graduates to senior-level executives, as well as multi-cloud engineering and supporting cross-functional roles, such as product and programme management.

The roles will largely support new products, services and applications for Veritas.

Veritas will also focus on creating close links with universities across Ireland and intends to launch an internship graduate programme in 2018.

The new centre in Dublin was described as a “strategic extension” of a new innovation centre in San Francisco.

Veritas chief executive Bill Coleman said the company was “thrilled” to be recruiting.

“Our latest research shows that 56 per cent of organisations have a cloud-first mentality, but are struggling with how to protect their data, gain visibility and extract maximum value while staying compliant,” he said.

“This new centre is going to focus on solving these challenges and we’re delighted to work with the IDA Ireland to attract top talent into the Veritas family.

“Veritas is a company of technologists and we look forward to welcoming people with skills in areas such as analytics, machine learning and cloud data protection to our team in Ireland.

“We also believe in nurturing our talent and we hope future employees of Veritas in Dublin will stay for years to come.”

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said the creation of 250 new jobs was “a great boost” for Ballycoolin and North-West Dublin.

“The Government is prioritising research and development, innovation and enterprise, to ensure companies like Veritas can grow their operations here,” he said.

“Ireland has developed a very strong reputation as being a hub for cloud-based technology companies and the latest jobs announcement confirms that this sector of the economy is continuing to grow strongly and contribute to our jobs recovery.”

IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan welcomed the announcement. “Veritas joins a prominent list of leading companies creating a foundation in the city and reflects our commitment to innovation in Ireland,” he said.

“The Dublin expansion builds on the company’s existing presence and attests to the city’s thriving tech culture. We welcome Veritas’ continued investment and expansion in Ireland.”
