Technology firm to create eight jobs at hub in Belfast
A technology company specialising in data management is opening up a support centre in Belfast with the creation of eight new jobs.
Push Technology provides real-time data streaming technology to major companies in industries including financial services, energy, retail and healthcare.
It has developed a platform which it says can help reduce infrastructure requirements and speed up the time it takes to get to market.
The company said the new Belfast staff will provide technology expertise to Push Technology's global customer base. The new roles are in software engineering, sales and marketing.
Chief executive Sean Bowen said: "The ever-expanding need for secure, highly-scalable, event-driven data to be distributed in real-time is driving our success worldwide.
"To support our growth and facilitate services delivery, we have chosen to locate our hub centre in Northern Ireland. Belfast stands out for the strength of its technology services workforce and strong supply of talent."
Economic development agency Invest NI offered £48,000 towards the jobs. Its head of international investment Derek Andrews said: "Push Technology is a welcome addition to our thriving technology sector. This is the latest in a number of investments in the sector, which is testament to NI's strength as a hub for technology services."
