Silicon Valley digital transformation player and brand shaper Pivotal is to create 130 new jobs in Dublin and Cork as part of a €100m investment over the next few years.

The move will see Pivotal expand its presence across EMEA and create a software innovation hub to help transform its traditional enterprise customers into modern software companies that can compete in the digital era.

The company said it intends to invest in a new office in Dublin and to expand its current operations in Cork over the next five years in a move that will result in recruitment for full-time software engineering, technical support, operational and general and administrative roles.

“It is a hotbed of talent, innovation and exciting ideas that we are looking forward to playing a central role in. Pivotal Labs will quickly become a software innovation hub for Dublin’s largest enterprises in all industries and will help transform them into great software companies”, said Kevin Flanagan, the group’s general manager for Ireland.

Silicon Valley-headquartered Pivotal is partially owned by EMC and VMware, with General Electric becoming an investor in May 2013.

The company employs some 1,700 staff worldwide and its customers include Twitter, Best Buy, BT, Philips and BMW. Its Irish operations are currently based in Dogpatch Labs in Dublin’s Docklands.
