Ericsson, the fifth-largest software company in the world, will bring its Irish workforce up to 1,400 with the recruitment of 120 people for its operations in Dublin and Athlone. The jobs being created are highly-skilled roles encompassing software developers, solution architects, consultants and programme managers.

Both MSc programmes are Ericsson sponsored.
“We are looking for highly-skilled people who want to work in a dynamic and creative environment,” Traoloch Collins, Ericsson’s managing director in Ireland said, adding that, “Ireland is a major research and development hub for Ericsson globally.
