30 jobs are to be created in Shannon over the next three years by Renovo Motors Inc.
An automotive data management software company, Renovo Motors Inc have announced they will be setting up its EMEA Headquarters and Software Development Hub in Shannon which will create at least 30 jobs over the next three years. The project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Founded in 2010, designs and developments by Renovo will greatly enhance the development of future software-defined vehicles. The award-winning platform being developed by Renovo enables intelligent data capture and management from advanced software-defined vehicle architectures which is then optimised to enhance and improve performance, safety and speed to market for the current and next generation of vehicle OEMs.
Located in the Future Mobility Campus Ireland (FMCI) in Shannon, key functions at Renovo’s EMEA HQ and Software Development Hub will include management, software development, engineering, and business development.
Renovo will be recruiting in the areas of Program Management, Software Architecture/Development, and Artificial Intelligence/Engineering in the coming months.
Establishing “a strong headquarters presence in the EU” was identified as “critically important” by Chris Heiser, CoFounder, and CEO, Renovo. “After a thorough investigation of potential sites, I am delighted to say that Ireland’s Mid-West became the obvious location for Renovo’s EMEA HQ. This decision was made all the easier with the Mid-West’s established community of Auto-tech companies and the opportunity to leverage our local efforts with key partners like Jaguar Land Rover, Seagate, and Cisco”.
Using Shannon as their headquarters “will allow us the perfect opportunity to scale locally in support of this project, and others across the greater EMEA region,” Dennis Hamann, Managing Director, EMEA, Renovo stated.
A total of 185 jobs were announced by the Tánaiste, Leo Varadkar (FG) on Monday morning including those in Shannon along with further hires in Galway, Dundalk, Cork and Dublin across 8 high growth companies from Europe and the US.
“Investment in Ireland has remained remarkably resilient throughout the pandemic. These new jobs, which are in Shannon, Galway, Dundalk, Cork and Dublin, demonstrate the commitment of existing international partners to expand here, and also of our ability to attract new investment,” Varadkar commented.
