Get your start: Kilkenny software company hiring on back of Covid-19 demand for its product
An award-winning Kilkenny-based software company is to expand its workforce in an effort to meet increased demand because of its work on Covid-19 response programmes for small and medium enterprises.
Veri, which is based in the Kilkenny Research and Innovation Centre at St Kieran’s College in the city, is looking for software engineers for an immediate start.
The company specialises in training compliance and analytics software, and remotely verifying face-to-face training and quality assurance.
It has recently signed two new contracts to bring its digitisation tool to new Covid-19 SME response programmes, allowing for real-time quality assurance through cloud-based software, and this is where the need for the new positions arises.
To meet growing demand from the two new project wins and other work, it has immediate starts from its Kilkenny base for experienced PHP engineers. Remote working is an option and Veri envisages the candidates being based on the island of Ireland.
Veri has partnered with international digital mentoring company, Profile Tree, for a three-year Digi-Growth Mentor Growth Programme for Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council.
Since the pandemic began, Veri has also begun working with Agile Executive, a C-Suite outsourcing company supplying services to employer’s group, IBEC via Skillnet and the Small Firms Association on the MentorsWork initiative.
Commenting on the new roles, Veri Founder and CEO, Ann Marie McSorley, said: ” The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do everything and its impact will be felt for years to come. This includes training, mentoring and other supports for business.
“Veri’s software ensures face to face training delivery – classroom or virtual – can be benchmarked to track quality, milestones, skills, feedback and outcomes in realtime via a simple mobile app.
“We’ve immediate starts for a VP of Engineering and Senior PHP Developer. Both of these roles include significant remote working opportunities. Our Kilkenny base is also a really great benefit and also have relocation accommodation available as part of the package.
“Not everyone wants to go back to a lengthy commute or consider immigration. We expect this is just the start of a major expansion phase for Veri and want interested applicants to get in touch immediately email@example.com It’s time to ensure our brightest and our best have opportunities at home,” Ann Marie concluded.
