AquaQ Analytics To Create Over 100 Tech Jobs In Belfast

AquaQ Analytics, a data and software specialist, has announced plans to create over 100 tech jobs in Belfast.

35 jobs have already been filled by the big data firm but a further 88 are still up for grabs, with AquaQ Analytics creating a total of 123 new positions in Belfast.

Roles still available at AquaQ Analytics in the Northern Ireland capital include business analysts, Kdb+/q developers, data analysts and software engineers.

Some of the vacancies on offer at the company are expected to be filled by graduates in Belfast.

Announcing the recruitment drive in the city, AquaQ Analytics’ Chief Technology Officer, Jonny Press, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our Belfast team and have invested in new premises to support this growth, which we hope to move into when the time is right. The support we have received from Invest NI (£861,000) to create the new jobs, along with its continued advice and guidance, has played an integral part in our growth plans.”

“These jobs will enable us to broaden the skillset across our team, increase the global reach of our business and meet the needs of our growing client base. The area of Big Data technology is something that we recognise will be of great importance to the wider tech sector, particularly as companies look at new ways to innovate due to COVID-19,” added Mr Press.

Diane Dodds, the Northern Ireland Economy Minister, welcomed the announcement, saying: “This significant reinvestment by AquaQ Analytics is welcome news as we work to rebuild the economy post-pandemic.”

“Big Data is a rapidly growing area of Northern Ireland’s tech sector. It is important to utilise and optimise data to obtain valuable business information that will help to revive industry sectors like hospitality and tourism following COVID-19.”

“The company’s expansion with 123 new jobs will double its workforce, and help it to strengthen its position in export markets and diversify into new sectors. Once all are in place, the jobs will contribute over £3.2million of annual salaries to the Northern Ireland economy,” said Ms Dodds.

Invest NI’s Executive Director of Business and Sector Development, Brian Dolaghan, also commented, saying: “We have a long standing relationship with AquaQ Analytics and are pleased to continue supporting the company as it strengthens its presence in Northern Ireland.”

“Our support has helped them create new jobs, invest in skills development and export markets which has resulted in AquaQ Analytics winning numerous contracts in global markets. It is this exact partnership approach which is catapulting the company forward and I look forward to seeing where this expansion takes it in the future.”
