Software and IT provider Kaseya has announced plans to establish a Centre of Excellence in Dundalk, Ireland, which will create 250 jobs over the next three years.
The centre will focus on research and development and will have support from the Irish government.
The project will create high-skilled jobs for engineers, technicians and sales professionals that will concentrate on new customer acquisitions. The new roles will also be open for students as Kaseya will also aim to work with university partners to provide training for potential candidates within the region.
A similar program has been conducted in Miami, where Kaseya has grown an operation from 150 people to 600 with a 150,000 sq ft space. Those plans are also expected to drive recruitment up to 1,200 by the end of 2023.
Launching a new program in Dundalk is another win for Ireland which has quickly become a hotbed for tech talent and global investment. This will be the second round of investment in the country from Kaseya, which already has offices in Dublin.
“We are planning to attract top tech talent and generate a robust workforce pipeline in the local community,” said Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola. “We are excited about this partnership that will expand Kaseya’s footprint in Ireland, where Kaseya has its roots. The company first established its EMEA headquarters in Dublin in 2016.”

With the support of the IDA Ireland, Kaseya hopes to bring further economic growth to the region. The announcement demonstrates the attractiveness of Dundalk as a place to invest, according to Tánaiste Leo Varadkar.
“I’m sure it was their hard work that gave the company the confidence to expand further,” Varadkar said. “Kaseya has witnessed remarkable growth over recent years, and I wish the team every continued success with the new Dundalk office.”
