Spearline Labs has announced that it is hiring 20 people at its Skibbereen base as it looks to double its workforce over the next 18 months. The company which was founded in 2003 by Kevin Buckley (CEO) and Matthew Lawlor (CTO) has a global presence in 50 countries.
The company is currently investing over €1million in new products which will be ready for market from early next year and will represent 33% of the company’s revenue by 2017. The primary focus of this investment will be on mobile line testing which will further broaden Spearline Lab’s offering.
Speaking of the announcement which marks the single biggest jobs boost for Skibbereen in over 30 years, Kevin Buckley, CEO said, “Today is a big day for Spearline Labs and for the West Cork region in general. When we set up in 2003 many thought that a technology company would not have the scope to succeed let alone expand in such a rural location. However, technology knows no boundaries and as long as the product is innovative and fulfils a market need then a business can thrive in any location.”
“When the first telephone box was installed in Ireland in 1925 people thought it couldn’t get any better, yet less than 50 years later the first mobile phone was introduced. The world of technology is always progressing and we challenge ourselves every day to not only keep up with but lead the way in what we do here in Skibbereen.”
“With 20 people from 5 different countries already employed here we are excited about finding new colleagues to fill roles across a number of areas including Software Engineering, Support, International sales, Finance and Account Management. We are proud to be among the fastest growing technology companies in Ireland, and to again be awarded with a Deloitte Fast 50 award 2015, for the second year in a row. The future is very bright for Spearline Labs and we are looking forward to expanding our services to some of the world’s most powerful businesses.”
