Welcoming the company’s investment, Kevin Holland, CEO Invest Northern Ireland said, “Invest NI has worked closely with ScreenCloud to secure this investment, by facilitating visits to Belfast to meet with investors, recruitment consultants and our two universities, as well as providing support towards the new jobs.

Half the roles already in place

“The fact that the company has been able to get the team up and running quickly with nearly half the roles in place, reaffirms our position as Europe’s leading FDI destination for new software development projects.

“These are professional roles with well-paid salaries and, once all are in place, will contribute over £2million in additional annual salaries to the Northern Ireland economy.
