A Belfast technology company is planning to double its workforce in the next two years.
Latens Systems Ltd, which provides security software to Pay TV operators, launched the expansion plans this week.
Chief technical officer Jason Rogers said that the company's global research and development centre in Belfast had grown significantly since it opened in 2002.
"As a sign of Latens' commitment to the region and desire for continued international growth in sales, I am pleased to announce the latest recruitment drive for Belfast," he said.
Around 12-15 jobs will be created in the next six months, with a view to doubling the current workforce of 60 by 2012.
Phase one of the recruitment drive will focus on both graduate and senior software engineering roles, along with principle software engineers. Senior roles are being advertised through the company's website and agencies, with graduate roles being promoted via a series of university roadshows that will be taking place later this month.
Latens recently won the Queen's Award for Enterprise in the category of international trade.
