Technology company eBECS has announced the creation of 100 new tech jobs in Ireland.

The company, which established operations in Ireland in 2016, specialises in delivering Microsoft business applications, and the jobs are remote working positions, meaning that successful applicants can work from home or from anywhere in Ireland.

Announcing the jobs the company, which is a Microsoft Gold Partner, said that the roles are spread across both its Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCP’s) and both their graduate and return to work programme.

eBECS' returnship programme reaches out to people who perhaps have significant business skills, but have been unemployed for at least 18 months, giving them a chance to re-enter the jobs market.

"eBECS has been excited by the capabilities of our existing staff in Ireland and the digital transformation that it has provided to our customers," James Finnegan, eBECS Ireland country manager, said.

"We are now looking to accelerate the hiring of additional talent from Ireland. We feel the ability for our staff to work from home, or anywhere within Ireland provides staff with a unique work/life balance."

The announcement was welcomed by both the Minister for Business Enterprise & Innovation, Heather Humphreys T.D., and IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan.
