A DERRY cyber security firm has announced a major recruitment drive for 30 graduates in a bid to support its continued growth.

MetaCompliance, a global leader in the human aspect of cyber security and compliance is expanding rapidly due to an increased demand for the company's products, driven by a global surge in cybercrime.

The Derry-based firm is recruiting across all disciplines including software development, software testing, sales, marketing, HR, support, design and motion graphics. MetaCompliance chief executive, Robert O'Brien said the company is keen to attract people that are hardworking, innovative and can share their ideas for the development of the business.

“We are looking for graduates that want to work with the best talent in SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) technology. It is a credit to parents and teachers that have invested in their children through education and we are delighted to be able to provide knowledge economy jobs to start their careers here locally.

MetaCompliance takes the best talent and competes successfully against technology companies in Silicon Valley and around the world.”

The recruitment drive comes on the back of a successful year for MetaCompliance which has seen it double its turnover, double its workforce and expand its product portfolio.

Last November the company announced it is to add 69 staff to the workforce over three years in a effort to increase worldwide sales and is planning further growth both at its Derry base and in Atlanta, Georgia.

Metacompliance has been developing software and content for the cyber security and compliance market since 2005. In addition to the firm's support and development centre in Derry it also has offices in Dublin, London, Birmingham and the US.
