Limerick-based firm to create roles in software development, cloud IT and sales

Irish IT services and software firm Redfaire is to create 40 jobs as it expands its overseas customer base.

The company, which is headquartered in Limerick, currently employs 43 people in Ireland, with a further 27 at its UK and France offices.

The new roles will include IT support sales, cloud IT consultants and software product development.

The company, which recently won a contract with filling stations group Circle K – which owns the Topaz and Esso retail brands – is also adding to staff to grow its software business and meet demand for Oracle’s cloud products.

“Redfaire is focused on becoming a leading Oracle IT services companies in EMEA,” said the company’s chief executive, Brian McInerney. “We are incredibly proud to be building a world-class IT company in Limerick. The founders of Redfaire are all from Limerick. When we graduated we went abroad; now we are able to bring that international experience back to our home town.”

The new jobs were welcomed by Minister for Finance Michael Noonan.
