A provider of mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) services has vowed to invest €20m in an Irish expansion, starting with a Galway office that will create 150 jobs.
SOTI has more than 17,000 customers. Its Galway base will be its tenth global office and will become the company’s European tech hub.
The expansion will initially create 50 jobs with a further 100 over the next three years.
SOTI president and chief executive Carl Rodrigues said: “Ireland forms an integral part of our long-term growth strategy, as it has developed an excellent reputation for being a technology-based economy, home to a vast array of tech companies from giant multinationals, to new start-ups”.
“Galway is already home to many Fortune 500 companies, making it a particularly attractive destination to source experienced development and sales talent.”
The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Minister of state at the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Sean Kyne, added: “A successful economy is one in which businesses of all shapes and sizes, from start-ups to local SMEs to multinationals, are supported to develop and grow.
“In a similar way, SOTI helps businesses to succeed through mobile and Internet of Things device management solutions. SOTI’s decision to choose Galway for its new office is a further boost to the city, the county and the West of Ireland and perfectly complements our strategy of developing the Atlantic Economic Corridor.” – Insider Media
