Jobs boost for Cork with 100 posts to be created by technology firm
A US technology company has vowed to create 100 jobs in Cork.
Nginx said it will open its European, Middle East and African headquarters in the city as part of a rapid global expansion.
It will recruit for roles in sales, marketing, finance, business development, software architecture, engineering, and research and development over the next three years.
The company, which has its headquarters in San Francisco, helps customers like Netflix and Instagram power and secure their websites.
It already employs around 100 people worldwide.
The Irish expansion is being supported by the State investment agency IDA Ireland.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny welcomed the announcement.
"Many of the world's leading technology firms are expanding their presence in Ireland because of the availability of highly skilled talent, the quality of life, and its strong relationships across Europe - and Nginx is no exception," he said.
"We welcome Nginx for both the job and economic advancement it will bring to Ireland."
