A Texas software firm has announced it’s opening an engineering centre in Belfast, creating 120 jobs paying an average salary of nearly £40,000.

ESO says it uses data to improve community health and safety, using software tools and products to service emergency medical services, fire departments and hospitals in the US. 

It’s project here has received funding of £780,000 from economic development agency Invest NI.  The salaries of the new jobs will contribute around £4.7m to the economy every year.

Chris Dillie, president and chief executive of ESO, said: “We believe smart data is changing the world in which we live, helping us make more informed decisions about how we approach healthcare and public safety.

“Through our range of software products, we are leading the data charge for the emergency services community to make informed decisions. This ultimately translates into healthier and safer communities.

“We identified Northern Ireland as the perfect location to establish our new centre due to the exceptional talent pool and the support from Invest NI. We’re looking for A+ talent to join our Belfast team to build on our product portfolio and help our customers be successful.”

Invest NI chief executive Alastair Hamilton said: “This investment by ESO to create 120 jobs is a welcome addition to our region’s thriving tech sector. ESO considered a number of potential locations for this investment and following an extensive evaluation, I am delighted that it chose Northern Ireland.”
