It was announced today that Granite Digital will create 50 new jobs across its Dublin, Cork and Galway offices. The jobs announcement comes as part of a €2.5m investment in its business which will bring its Irish workforce to over 100 people within the next three years.
Granite provides a wide range of digital solutions to businesses across Ireland, including digital strategy, web design, web development, digital marketing, seo and ppc consultancy and managed hosting.
The new roles will include data analysts, cloud infrastructure experts, software developers, creative roles and ux designers. Granite will hire experienced professionals and new talented graduates for its Granite academy programme.
The investment comes as Granite marks a significant period of growth, having more than doubled its revenue to €5 million over the past three years with plans to double it again to €10 million by 2022.
The new roles will be spread across Granite’s three Irish offices to better serve its growing nationwide client base of more than 1,400 private and public sector organisations. The digital agency has seen particularly strong growth in the fintech, healthcare, education and hospitality sectors.
Clients of Granite include Enterprise Ireland, Dalata Hotel Group, UCC, UCD, University of Wolverhampton, Uniphar, St. James Hospital, Bons Secours Health System, Dublin Bus, Davy, Fexco and Aon.
Speaking this week, Minister of State Jim Daly, who officiated at the announcement, said, “Granite is pioneering the way forward when it comes to developing cloud solutions and digital transformation services in this country. The dedication and hard work of the team, particularly over the years of the recession has led them to the success of this major announcement today. Their story also goes to show how a world class business such as Granite can grow from just a small base in rural Ireland, to a large multi-national business trading in the capital city, when the adequate infrastructure is provided to allow it to thrive.”
