CLOUD software company Ammeon is embarking on a major jobs expansion.
The telecommunications software company said it is creating 75 highly skilled jobs, of which 46 were filled in the past few weeks at its global headquarters in Dublin, with an additional nine positions at its British subsidiary in Reading.
Ammeon chief executive Fred Jones said the company now intends to complement these in early 2012 with 20 jobs for graduates and returning emigrants, as agreements are signed with telecommunications carriers.
The company said the new jobs, for software architects, senior software developers and business development specialists, are part of an ongoing expansion strategy focused on assisting the migration of telecommunications carriers and infrastructure providers to a cloud-based services architecture.
Mr Jones said: "This announcement represents an investment in our continued confidence in the quality and expertise of Irish software engineers and their proven technical ability.
"Thanks to them, we bolster our capabilities to assist in the rapid evolution of telecommunications equipment providers from legacy network-installed equipment to a ‘software as a service’ model," he said.
Ammeon said new contract wins in Europe and the Americas have accelerated its growth strategy.
