Axway to create 15 new jobs in Dublin, Ireland

11 December 2013 – Axway plans to expand its R&D Centre of Excellence based in Dublin, Ireland, which will immediately provide 15 software engineering jobs in the area and continue to grow over the years. The Centre of Excellence will be Axway’s global hub for its Application Interface Programming (API) Gateway research and development. 

Axway, on foot of its acquisition late last year of Irish company Vordel, is a world leader in the development of API Management technology. Axway joins a list of other big tech firms such as Amazon, Facebook, Google and Linkedin, which have all recently expanded their operations in Dublin. The company expansion will look to make the most of the local engineering talent.

Welcoming the announcement Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD said “Axway's decision to expand its R&D Centre of Excellence and create 15 high quality jobs is a clear indication of Ireland’s importance as a key location for technology companies to expand and grow their business. Under our Action Plan for Jobs we have identified the technology sector as an area of great potential and I am committed to ensuring that we continue to attract further investments and create much needed jobs for this economy”.

Dublin in particular is globally acknowledged as a hub of engineering excellence and we will be looking to recruit senior engineering staff for our R&D Centre,” said Laurent Bride, Executive Vice President of Research & Development, Axway.
