MathWorks Expands Ireland Presence with 85 job openings in Galway through 2019

MathWorks today announced accelerated growth in its Ireland office, as it looks to fill over 20 current job openings. Established in Galway in late 2016, MathWorks Ireland also expects to fill 65 additional jobs in 2019. The office provides centralised sales and services support to the company’s operations throughout EMEA and is building the team with candidates offering IT experience and fluency in multiple European languages.

Today, MathWorks staff in Galway are fluent in eleven languages, range in work experience from seasoned professionals to new graduates, and represent diverse geographical backgrounds, including long-term Galway residents, those who have relocated from cities like Dublin and Cork, and those originally from countries like Germany and Finland.

Welcoming the investment, the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD said “I am delighted to see MathWorks expanding their operations in Galway, and I thank them for their continued investment in Ireland. We have a strong footprint of innovative ICT businesses investing in Ireland, and we have the IT specialists and multilingual talent available to enable the company to grow and to embed their operations here. Their expansion is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer, and I wish them well for the future”

Commenting on today’s announcement Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland said “We are confident Ireland can meet MathWorks Galway’s expansion needs given our proximity to the European Market, the steady pipeline of talent spanning professionals and students, and our investments in economy and infrastructure.”

MathWorks opened the Galway office with an initial focus on sales and support job functions to support the EMEA region. Today, MathWorks Ireland spans customer-facing roles including sales and services support, inside sales, channel development and support, marketing, and finance and administration. Most recently, the office expanded to include a team of Customer Success Specialists who focus entirely on helping customers realise the return on their investment in MATLAB and Simulink.

“The growing job opportunities in our Ireland office are a testament to the success of our new staff in delivering for our customers throughout EMEA in our first two years,” said Richard Haxby, Managing Director, MathWorks Ireland. “We are confident that we will have a strong pipeline of candidates to fill these jobs quickly given the overwhelmingly positive feedback we receive on our collaborative culture, competitive compensation, excellence in staff development and potential to explore global career opportunities.”
