Recruitment underway at the Blarney site
Global data center and network optimization company Park Place Technologies has opened a new operations and support center at Blarney Business Park, Cork. The project is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.
The new facility, located 6km north of Cork city centre, will accommodate the growth of Park Place, allow for employee expansion (expected to double by 2024), provide a landmark facility for customers and will provide high-quality meeting space for prospects and channel partners.
Positions are being filled with local talent and recruitment will continue for highly skilled engineering and technology positions. These include several roles, including help desk representatives, advanced engineering technical support, and buyer planners.
The new Park Place building at Blarney Business Park represents a direct investment in Ireland. Park Place plans to host local business and community events at the facility, so it is a venue that will benefit the wider County Cork community in an interactive and accessible way.
“Park Place doesn’t want to be seen as just another American company setting up for itself,” said Chris Adams, President and CEO of Park Place. “We do things differently when we invest in a community, and we want to prove that we are part of the life of people in County Cork.”
Anne-Marie Tierney Le-Roux, Head of Technology at IDA Ireland, said: “Congratulations to Park Place Technologies on the opening of their Support and Operations Center at Blarney Business Park. Since announcing its arrival in Ireland in 2018, Park Place Technologies has become an important member of the South West region’s established technology cluster.
Park Place has a history of investment and philanthropy in Ireland. His STEM efforts have included partnerships with CoderDojo, TechForGood, and I Wish.
