Twelve of the NI Software Development jobs already filled.

The company is setting up a 70 person software development centre.

To date, it has already recruited 12 people, all working from home.

The new jobs will attract high-level salaries.

Tomas Revesz, Chief Architect and co-founder says, “We started considering locations for the new development centre in early 2020 and were recommended to consider Northern Ireland.

“The combination of talent, capability and the strong cluster of InsurTech companies that we found when we visited Northern Ireland really impressed us.

“As a company, we also place significant importance on providing meaningful skill and career development opportunities for our people.

“We were keen to ensure we had the ability to work with local universities to create a team that has a blend of both experienced and new talent.

 

 

Calibre of Northern Ireland graduates “very attractive”.

“The calibre of the two universities, and the graduates they are producing made Northern Ireland very attractive to us as well.

“The government’s partnership with the business community here, through advice, guidance and financial support, is very reassuring as a new investor.

Tomas adds, “The support of the team at Invest NI has most definitely made this decision easier to make, and easier to implement.”

Kevin Holland, CEO, Invest Northern Ireland, welcomed the news.

“EverQuote is expanding its product development team here to support its growth and expansion business strategy into new insurance areas such as health, rental and direct-to-consumer markets.

“The new software development team in Northern Ireland will drive engineering and software excellence to support its US operations,” Kevin adds.

Invest NI has offered the company £420,000 to support the investment.

EverQuote currently employs around 425 staff across its offices in Massachusetts and Washington State.
