US firm MathWorks is to create 85 jobs in Galway over the next year.

The company currently has 20 vacancies and is looking to fill 65 additional jobs in 2019.

The roles being created are for people with IT experience, as well as fluency in multiple European languages.

MathWorks’ Galway office provides centralised sales and services support to the company’s operations throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

"The growing job opportunities in our Ireland office are a testament to the success of our new staff in delivering for our customers throughout EMEA in our first two years," Richard Haxby, MD of MathWorks Ireland, said.

Welcoming the investment, the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD said she was "delighted" to see the company expanding its operations in the West of Ireland.

"We have a strong footprint of innovative ICT businesses investing in Ireland, and we have the IT specialists and multilingual talent available to enable the company to grow and to embed their operations here. Their expansion is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer, and I wish them well for the future," Minister Humphreys said.
