Murex Software Firm Expands Workers 

French Financial Software Company Expands Dublin R&D Centre with IDA Ireland Grant



IDA_Ireland.jpgAnnouncing the first jobs to be created in 2011 by an IDA Ireland supported company, French financial software systems developer, Murex, is to expand its Dublin operation with the creation of 30 new high value jobs in software development, business development and consulting. 



Murex first established a software centre in Dublin in 2000 and according to Francois Pourprix, managing director of Murex, the success of this operation has led to the decision to expand in Ireland. He said, "Ireland provides for Murex a pool of highly-skilled people from which to choose our workforce, an excellent environment for Research and Development and a reputation for success in software development. I would like to thank the existing workforce here for their dedication to making this office a success which has led to our expansion here, and to IDA Ireland for their support of this development."



Announcing the jobs, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Innovation, Batt O'Keeffe TD, described the investment as an important boost for Ireland's communications technology (ICT) sector. "Eight of the world's top 10 technology firms are based in Ireland so Murex's decision to hire more highly skilled workers in Dublin fits well with the Government's focus on innovative high-tech industry.

It is significant that Murex, which operates in a technically challenging niche area of the software market, has chosen Ireland for expansion, adding to our strong cluster of global ICT players and acknowledging the strong track record of the Dublin workforce," said Minister O'Keeffe.



IDA CEO Barry O'Leary (pictured) said: "Murex is one of a significant number of international ICT companies using Ireland as a base to develop software products for the global financial services industry and the expansion of this operation is evidence of Ireland's ability to host high-end, innovative operations of this nature.

The Dublin centre has world-wide responsibility for the end-to-end development, marketing, sales and distribution of the Murex Enterprise Risk platform and the operation also owns the Intellectual Property for this product. The presence and expansion of Murex in Ireland enhances Ireland's position in winning knowledge-led investment and adds to the growing cluster of financial technology companies in Ireland."
