Vodafone Ireland is to create an additional 60 technical roles over the next 12 to 18 months on the back of a surge in demand for its products and services.

The company, which has made a significant investment in its IT infrastructure and customer management platforms in recent years, currently employs about 2,000, with a customer base of 2.3 million.

Vodafone said it is creating a number of senior and specialists roles in areas such as IT architecture, digital product management, UX and design, demand management, agile techniques, test automation and JavaScript development.

“Technology is rapidly advancing, and technology-rich services and solutions have become an essential part of our customers’ everyday needs. In order to maintain our leadership position and deliver a world-class telecoms infrastructure and a superior product for our customers, we must continue to invest in technology, our digital platforms and in our people,” said Vodafone’s chief technology officer Madalina Suceveanu.

Expansion

The new services, which were introduced in October, include everything from co-location, managed hosting, private cloud and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

The jobs announcement comes after Vodafone last year created 200 jobs as part of a €60 million investment in a new European sales centre in Carrickmines, Dublin.
