10Gen to bring 150 new jobs on stream

150 new jobs will come on stream at a hi-tech company in Dublin over the next five years.

10Gen has already begun recruiting 60 people for its European, Middle East and Africa hub.

The global database management company is hoping to create a total of 500 positions here over the next decade.

CEO Max Schireson said they are already ahead of target when it comes to job creation.

"That's running ahead of plan both because we have found some wonderful talent here and been able to attract them to join as well as our business overall is growing faster than initially planned," he said.

"I think we'll hit that 60 in two to three years and probably 150 in five years."
