The ICT sector, which we have specifically targeted through our Action Plan for Jobs, has added a total of more than 11,000 jobs since this Government took office and Irish companies are playing a key role in that. I am determined to continue and build on the strong supports we have put in place so that we can see more growth from Irish ICT companies to help get the country back to work”.

Michael Cronin, MD opensky said: “opensky is a highly successful company that has achieved phenomenal growth since our establishment in 2004. In addition to our HQ in Kildare, we now have two offices located in mainland Europe.  This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals to be part of a dynamic, professional and international team.
