Big data analytics copmpany Bluemetrix has announced 15 new jobs in its Cork office following a new partnership with Hortonworks, creator of data analytical software Hadoop.
Bluemetrix has said that the 15 jobs are expected to be filled in its Cork office by the end of 2016 with a view of training data analysts in using the program. An additional five jobs will be created in its Japanese operations by the end of this year.
Speaking of the announcement, Bluemetrix’s founder and CEO, Liam English, said that these jobs are a necessity due to the shortage of data analysts familiar with the Hadoop software, which it has worked with since 2009.
“We are looking for Linux experts, and they will receive a further 18 months of training from us in Hadoop, English said. “At the moment there is a scarcity of Hadoop expertise worldwide. We will address this problem by training people to use the latest Hadoop technology in actual operational environments, and at the end of their training they will be recognised as senior Hadoop administrators”.
Bluemetrix is Ireland's leading independent online analytics company providing customised Web Analytics and Data Consultancy services to blue chip clients in Japan, Scandinavia and Ireland since 2001.
