The event, named Tech Nomads will allow employers to place their teams, tech, and culture in front of the relevant talent in their field, with “hundreds” of jobs on offer. The event will also feature a schedule of panels and tech talks from a range of industry leaders.
Companies present at the event will include Jaguar Land Rover, Unum, Sidero, Kneat, Carelon, and Ericsson, together with a host of startups and companies backed by Enterprise Ireland.
According to a new report by Zoom in collaboration with FRS Recruitment, Irish job posts offering remote and hybrid work are up 43% over 12 months, with 87% of remote and hybrid roles in the IT, accounting, and commercial sectors.
In addition, figures published by the Central Statistics Office show that the digital sector employs more than 270,000 people in Ireland. It has been highlighted that employees in ICT have the highest average earnings in Ireland, with a combined wage of €8.5 billion recorded in 2019.
Speaking ahead of the inaugural Tech Nomads, Tracey Carney, CEO at Dublin Tech Summit and Catalyst Media, said: “We are excited to launch Tech Nomads and we see this event as a sign of Ireland’s strength in tech, not only in Dublin but across the country. Throughout Ireland, there are employers that can provide exciting new roles for tech industry professionals who may have been affected by recent layoffs, whilst also offering a rewarding tech/life balance. We look forward to welcoming the industry to the event on February 22nd.”
The event will take place at The Complex, Arran St. East, Dublin. Those interested in registering for the event can do so here.
