Qarik, the New York Software firm will be hiring graduates and senior staff for roles spanning software engineering, data science, UX design and DevOps.
The New-York headquartered tech firm Qarik made the announcement on the 15th of September that they will be hiring for 50 new roles in Belfast, Northern Ireland as they establish a research and delivery hub in Belfast.
Gavan Corr, previous principal for Google Cloud Financial Services and Joe Schenk, former Jefferies CFO founded the firm in 2019. The firm provides analysis software development and cloud-based data management to US customers.
The 50 jobs available in the firm include senior level positions. In addition, there are 10 new roles available specifically for recent graduates. The new jobs will contribute nearly £2.2 million in annual salaries to the local economy.
37 out of the 50 jobs have already been filled by the New York Software firm. However, there are still a number available in addition to the 10 jobs for recent graduates.
The Belfast team will be collaborating with the employees in the US office to address legacy issues of traditional financial institutions and the sensitivities and complexity brought about by a regulated environment.
Invest NI has shown their support toward the new roles in Qarik by offering £325,000 towards them. The jobs are expected to range from graduate level to very senior levels, focusing on data science, software engineering, DevOps and user-experience design.
Earlier this month, a report was released that highlighted how Belfast ranks strongly against other UK cities, especially when it comes to tech jobs. Many US companies have recently announced their own plans to set up tech bases in the city. Some of these companies include Cygilant, Peak6 and Envorso.
