100 New Jobs with Tech company Boxever

100 new jobs are to be created by an Irish company that builds software to help airlines and travel companies gather and analyse large volumes of data, and extract value from it.

Boxever, which employs 60 people, is looking for data scientists and software engineers to fill the roles. The company will also be recruiting in the areas of sales and marketing, with the 100 jobs filled within the next 12-18 months

The company's expansion comes after the firm secured $12m in fresh investment, bringing the total amount of money it has raised to $22m. This latest investment follows a 463% growth in revenue at the company since the last round of funding closed in December 2013.

Boxever has added a range of new customers over the past 12 months, including airlines such as Emirates and Aer Lingus. Among those putting money into the company are current investors Polaris Partners, Frontline Ventures and others, with Silicon Valley Bank contributing debt funding.

According to Boxever, it will use the fresh funding to expand its sales and customer support operations around the world, and increase its product and engineering teams.

Details of career opportunities with Boxever are available here.


Current openings include among others:

  • Product Owner
  • Quality Engineering Lead
  • Data Scientist
  • Senior Personalistation Engineer
  • Office Manager

Founded in 2011 by Dave O’Flanagan, Dermot O’Connor and Alan Giles, Boxever is headquartered in Dublin. It also has an office in Boston. Its cloud-based software uses big data and predictive analytics to figure out what is likely to elicit a response from customers, so that marketing and offers can be appropriately targeted at them.
