Microsoft digital enterprise consultancy, Storm Technology, last week confirmed the creation of over 60 new jobs at its Dublin and Galway operations.

The bulk of the jobs will be in Galway, at the company’s headquarters based in the Galway Business Park in Dangan on the outskirts of the city.

The planned expansion is in response to the growing demand for the company’s digital transformation advisory and implementation services, which help organisations to optimise their investment in digital technologies to save money, increase efficiency and drive growth.

The new positions, supported by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland are across many areas of the business and include opportunities for senior managers, digital business consultants, change management experts and software professionals.

Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald came to Galway for the announcement.

“I am delighted to join Karl Flannery and his team at Storm Technology in their Galway headquarters for the announcement of 60 new high value jobs,” she said.

“It is a testament to the vision and hard work of everyone in Storm Technology that this indigenous Irish company has grown to be one of Ireland’s most respected business technology consultancies, working with well-known and respected local and global brands in Ireland and internationally,” she added.

Storm Technology CEO Karl Flannery said that the new jobs were a result of the on-going growth of the business.

“We have been successfully achieving double-digit growth over the past five years and our plans are to double that over the next three years,” he said.
