US software company Tigera is to establish its new international headquarters in Cork with plans to create 35 new jobs.
Headquartered in San Fransisco, the company creates software to help application developers to manage and scale their projects. They enable organisations of all sizes in various industries to secure, observe, and troubleshoot applications in the open-source Kubernetes environments.
President and CEO of Tigera, Ratan Tipirneni said Cork's technology hub, access to the EU market and languages, IDA support, and great cultural alignment were the key factors to locate their European, Middles East and Asian (EMEA) headquarters in Cork.
Recruitment is under way for a wide range of roles at the new EMEA HQ in Cork City centre, including software engineering, sales, customer success, and marketing.
Micheál Martin said: “I am delighted Tigera has chosen Cork to host its new EMEA headquarters, creating 35 new high-quality jobs.
"I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship between Cork and Tigera in the years come,” the Taoiseach said.
Peter Kelly, the director of engineering and site leader for Tigera in Ireland, says the international team has been hugely impressed with the talent available here.
“As a Cork native, I am very proud that such a high-potential, high-growth company as Tigera has chosen this location for their EMEA HQ," he said.
"It is incredibly exciting to be building a team here that will be a core part of the future success of Tigera," Mr Kelly said.
