Dave Elkington: Hiring best and brightest.

Artificial intelligence–powered predictive sales acceleration platform, unveiled plans last month to expand into Ireland as part of an initiative to better serve customers across the EMEA region. The firm says the move could create some 120 jobs in the republic.

“We’re not only looking to hire some of Ireland’s best and brightest technology graduates, but also to help build a new, highly skilled industry in the region,” Dave Elkington, CEO, told the Journal.

The technology company also announced a new growth equity round of investment, including participation of the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund, and signed a new partnership with Ireland’s Insight Centre for Data Analytics.

The Insight Centre for Data Analytics is a joint initiative between researchers at Dublin City University, NUI Galway, University College Cork, University College Dublin and other partner institutions. The goal for InsideSales’ partnership with Insight Centre is to help advance data science and machine learning as an emerging highly skilled industry in Ireland. A formal internship programme will be established, with a goal of advancing the careers of top data science and engineering interns annually from within the Irish university system.
