Irish telecommunications company Spearline said it would nearly double its workforce and create more than 100 new jobs as part of its global expansion plans.
The move comes on the heels of the recent acquisition of TestRTC in Israel and will see the company grow to 250 by the end of the year. It forecasts further growth in 2023.
The Cork-based company said it plans to hire 106 people across customer engagement, finance, human resources, marketing, operations, product engineering and sales. The new jobs will be spread across Ireland, the US and India, with a focus on remote working roles. Almost 40 of the jobs will be located in Ireland, but this number could increase as the company has a remote and hybrid working policy, and roles attached to offices outside Ireland could be filled by candidates based in Ireland. .
Spearline, which helps call centers monitor their network and call quality and counts Zoom and Mastercard among its customers, is headquartered in Skibbereen, Co Cork, with a second base in Waterford. It also has locations in India and Romania and plans to establish a multi-state team in the United States to cover all regions where new and existing customers operate.
“We are delighted to announce that we will be expanding our membership in Ireland and internationally,” said Spearline Managing Director and Co-Founder Kevin Buckley. “Our plan is to hire 106 people in total. . . as we embrace a more modern, hybrid approach to working in a post-Covid world.
Spearline was founded in 2003 in West Cork by Mr Buckley and Matthew Lawlor. It bought TestRTC in December 2021 in a deal worth more than 10 million euros, triggering expansion plans in California.
