15 June, 2015
Cambridge, Massachusetts-based NuoDB is to establish a software engineering centre in Belfast, creating 20 new jobs.
Supported by Invest Northern Ireland, the centre will have 20 highly skilled and experienced software engineers developing database solutions designed to support “cloud-scale” applications and connected devices.
Commenting on the company’s decision to locate the centre in Northern Ireland, Alastair Hamilton, CEO of Invest NI said: “Cloud-based database solutions are new innovative tools, designed to support the scalable on-demand software we all use in our daily lives.
“We are pleased to have had the opportunity to work closely with this highly innovative company and convince them of the benefits of Northern Ireland as the location for their new software centre.
“The 20 strong software engineering team will be recruited over a three year period, with an average salary of £40,500 reflective of the highly skilled work they will be involved in.”
Invest NI has offered support of £100,000 to help create the new jobs and secure the project for Northern Ireland.
Barry Morris, CEO and co-founder of NuoDB said: “We see demand for our database management system growing rapidly and hence the need to expand our engineering team to support our customers.
“During the Web Summit in November 2014, I accepted an invitation from Invest NI to visit Northern Ireland and explore the possibility of opening an office here. Invest NI’s support played a major role in our decision to choose Belfast.
“In addition, I am familiar with the strong talent pool in Northern Ireland, the focus on skills development and the pro-business climate. We are looking forward to working with Invest NI and building our presence in the region.”
Barry Morris will be delivering a keynote presentation at EnterConf titled “The ‘Now’ Economy Driving Business Innovation” and moderating a panel discussion on "Solving Data Residency Compliance Challenges".
