Hewlett Packard Enterprise to create 150 jobs in Galway and Kildare

Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a technology services and equipment producer, is set to create 150 jobs in counties Galway and Kildare. The new employees will be hired over the next two years.

The new positions in the American multinational enterprise IT company would be in research and development, cyber security, software development, and cloud consulting. There will also be openings for data scientists and incident response team. Those who get new positions can work from anywhere in the country.

While Ireland is a hub for the company’s cloud and financial services, Galway was chosen as the location for its European cyber security operations centre.

“Ireland has an incredible technology-focused economy and a highly skilled workforce, and our investment in the country will further develop the country as a critical market for HPE’s global business, as well as benefitting our customers, partners, team members and the citizens of Ireland,” said Antonio Neri, President and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

The Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which was founded on November 1, 2015, already employs 600 people in Ireland. The company also has a presence in Cork, where its network solutions business, Aruba, has an office.

Welcomed by Government, Kildare Chamber and IDA Ireland

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar said: “Hewlett Packard Enterprise has been long-established in Ireland and is a significant source of employment in both Galway and Kildare.”

“This announcement demonstrates the company’s continued commitment to our country and shows that we have the right infrastructure and ecosystem to enable leading technology companies to grow and thrive,” he added.

Meanwhile, Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, said Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s decision to locate its European cyber security operations centre in Galway is a significant endorsement of Ireland’s advanced technology ecosystem.

“This is a strategically important investment by HPE for Ireland and reflects the importance that the Galway and Leixlip sites play in the company’s global business,” he said.

The County Kildare Chamber has also welcomed the HPE’s job announcement. According to Allan Shine, CEO of the Chamber, the new high-tech jobs in research and development, cybersecurity, software development, and cloud consulting show that businesses in the region can rely on our young, talented workforce as well as our excellent location.

“It strengthens our position as the leading region for foreign direct investment in Ireland,” Mr Shine said.

“The new jobs further demonstrate that remote working will be a key component of new jobs coming out of Covid-19 as the hires will be able to work from any part of the country,” he added.
