FINEOS Corporation, a global provider of claims management software for the insurance industry, today announced that it is recruiting 50 highly skilled employees in the first half of 2013. The majority of the new roles are being created in the FINEOS Research and Innovation centre in Dublin and the remaining positions are open to anyone who would like to join the FINEOS Professional Services Team working on projects in Australia, United States and Canada.
In addition, FINEOS is also recruiting development and technical consultants in Poland, where it has a Software Development centre in Gdansk. The international positions reflect the key regional growth areas for the business.
The new positions include software engineers (Java), software testers, business analysts and technical implementation consultants. They will see FINEOS’ workforce grow from 350 to 400. Recruitment is currently underway for some of these positions and interested candidates can go to FINEOS Careers.
The announcement was welcomed today by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD:
“A key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs is supporting the growth of a powerful engine of Irish enterprise. The multinational sector is of course, and will remain crucial to our industrial strategy, but we must also support more strong Irish companies who can lead their sector, compete internationally and create large numbers of jobs.
“ICT is an area where we have particular strengths, and in the past two years we have seen an additional 11,000 jobs in this sector. Today’s announcement that FINEOS, a leading Irish software company which has been supported by Enterprise Ireland and exports almost all of what it produces, is very welcome. I am determined to ensure that, through continued strong implementation of our plan, we can see more announcements like this and get Ireland back to work”.
Headquartered in Dublin, FINEOS Corporation is one of Ireland’s largest and most successful Irish owned multi-national software companies and exports over 85% of all product and services. The company has continued to grow strongly in the second half of 2012 and added 6 new major international insurance customers to its portfolio.
The new FINEOS employees will support this expanding customer base, which includes some of the world’s largest insurance companies such as Principal Financial Group, Assurant, CommInsure, Liberty Insurance, and Tokio Marine.
Michael Kelly, founder and CEO said, “The time is right to invest in our people to ensure we have the capacity and expertise to match the needs of our growing customer base. It also enables us to continue innovating the best products and services on the market.
“We grew strongly throughout 2012, winning new business and releasing the latest developments to our flagship product, FINEOS Claims, which combines our feature-rich claims management platform with industry best practice processes. By recruiting new talent, with the right level of technical expertise, we will continue to increase our market share, enter new markets and grow our overall business”.
This news follows the announcement last October that FINEOS had achieved a quarter of a billion euro worth of software and services exports over the last ten years.
FINEOS is the global market leader in Life & Health insurance claims solutions with six out of the top 20 Life & Health carriers in the US, three out of the top five carriers in Australia and similar market positions in Canada and Continental European countries. It also has a significant presence in delivering claims solutions for government accident and compensation schemes as well as having a strong claims management solution for the London Market and General Insurance industry.
