Expansion will create 150 posts

A technology company is to create 150 jobs at a new research and development facility at its international headquarters in Cork.

VCE, which is involved in software and cloud computing, is aiming to develop new employment opportunities for software engineers and developers, quality assurance engineers and other R&D support roles.

The expansion is expected to take the workforce over 250 by 2015.

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton said the cloud computing sector has seen significant growth in Ireland in recent years.

"I know how dynamic and innovative VCE is from our meetings on recent missions to the United States, and today's announcement that they are making significant investments and creating 150 jobs is great news for Cork and for Ireland," he said.

The investment, backed by IDA Ireland, is expected to sustain growth in Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific Japan regions.

VCE, which develops and provides IT infrastructure to streamline operations, established its Irish operations in Cork in 2011, the first centre outside the United States.
