HP to create 100 new jobs at new cloud research centre in Galway

HP is to create 100 new jobs in Galway through an investment in OpenStack cloud services at its new state-of-the-art facility in Ballybrit, Galway.

This investment in Galway is part of the company’s plans to expand the global reach of the HP Helion portfolio of cloud products and services.

As part of this investment, HP is adding approximately 100 high-tech jobs to its cloud R&D team in Galway.

“HP has consistently invested in and believed in Ireland over the past forty years,” Ireland’s Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD said today during a visit to HP’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California.

“Today, the company is one of Ireland’s most valued investors and one of our foremost creators of highly skilled R&D jobs. ICT is a sector which we have specifically targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs and we have put in place a range of measures to support jobs growth in this area. Supporting foreign direct investment is a central part of our jobs recovery plan”

The jobs, which will range in scope and expertise level, are supported by the government through IDA Ireland.

The new positions will assist HP’s enterprise customers with cloud planning, implementation and operational needs.

Individuals recruited for these roles also will also become active members of the OpenStack community, contributing design blueprints, new code, bug fixes and code reviews.

They also will engage quickly with HP enterprise customers seeking to deploy OpenStack clouds.
