Technology firm Ergo has announced the creation of 60 new jobs at its Dublin firm in a multi-million euro investment.

Located in Dublin’s East Point Business Park, Dublin 3, the company currently employs 450 IT professionals.

Ergo said the creation of the new jobs are a direct response to the increasing reliance on cloud services due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

John Purdy, chief executive officer said that “remote working is now the new norm,”

“Almost overnight, the pandemic necessitated the need for people to work from home in a secure and efficient manner.

“The cloud was the enabler that allowed that transition to occur. If this had occurred five or six years ago, it would have been a much bigger problem,” he said.

“We had to reposition our services to allow our clients to provide their users and their customers with access to technology and key apps to allow seamless, continuous working, and we had to stand up those services on behalf of our customers.”

Purdy says that companies “want to transform and move forward,” with the use of new agile technologies.

“The pandemic was devastating for many businesses, but the lucky ones that were able to leverage technology are seeing light at the end of the tunnel and new opportunities,” he said.

“I want to make sure that Ergo can partner with them and help them realise their new strategic goals quickly and continuously.

“We continue to invest and build capability to enable our clients to be the best they can be, now and into the future.”
