A Silicon Valley technology company is opening a software engineering centre in Belfast, creating 15 jobs.
Nebulon is pioneering on-premises, server-based enterprise storage for the cloud.
Economic development agency Invest NI has offered £97,500 to support the creation of the jobs at the centre.
The software engineering roles will support the delivery and development of cloud-defined storage, providing specialised cloud, security and storage expertise.
Jonathan McDowell, Nebulon Belfast site lead, said: "Northern Ireland has established itself as an emerging leader in terms of skilled high-tech and IT professionals.
"We are eager to tap into its talent base to successfully develop cloud-defined storage for forward-looking organisations embracing the migration to hybrid IT.
"Once these initial positions are in place, we are looking to expand our team further."
Derek Andrews, head of international investment at Invest NI, said: "It is great to welcome Nebulon as it begins its business expansion. Our support has allowed Nebulon to bring its innovation to Northern Ireland."
