ESO, a Texas-based, mission-driven software firm, is establishing an engineering centre in Belfast, which will create 120 jobs.

The company’s mission is to improve community health and safety through the power of data. It does this by delivering a broad range of powerful, award-winning software tools and products to meet the changing needs of today’s emergency medical services (EMS), fire departments and hospitals in North America.

Welcoming the company’s decision to set up in Northern Ireland, Invest Northern Ireland CEO 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.

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.
