Cork-based recruitment technology company Starcircle plans to create 100 new jobs to facilitate further expansion into its key market of the US.
The company uses technology and data to provide its clients with a different approach to sourcing diverse talent. It has offices in the US and Asia in addition to its Cork headquarters.
Most of the jobs will be based in Ireland, with Starcircle offering a mixture of hybrid and remote opportunities. The company is also looking to hire in the US.
Positions will be based across several areas including technology, marketing, advisory and project management. It is currently recruiting in Cork for a number of engineering, technical architect and analyst roles.
Starcircle’s clients include Marvel, Facebook, Amazon, Epic Games, Sonos, Dropbox, DoorDash and PayPal. According to the company’s CEO, James Galvin, its tech-driven approach to attracting talent has become increasingly popular with business leaders across the world.
Galvin said, “the big challenge is that over 85pc of the talent pool is passive and not easily identified. At Starcircle, we are developing a better way of sourcing talent, one that is enabled by technology, informed by data and guided by expertise.”
“We’re changing the way that top companies engage with talent. We go beyond job descriptions to identify high-potential candidates that would otherwise have gone overlooked. We take away the bias and rigid short-sightedness of traditional recruitment, and in its place we give our clients an engine to drive true dexterity and diversity in their hiring process.”
Taoiseach Micheál Martin, TD, visited the Starcircle office in Cork to mark the company’s jobs announcement, saying, “Starcircle is a great example of an Irish business delivering on the global stage. Finding and recruiting talent is the competitive challenge for companies the world over. Starcircle’s approach, driven by their passion and commitment, along with a deep understanding of the value of helping companies identify and engage with undiscovered talent, will, I’m sure, continue to bring further success for the company in the years ahead.”
The company is supported by Enterprise Ireland. The State agency’s regional director for the south and south-east, Martin Corkery, said it has “worked closely with Starcircle over the past seven years” and is “delighted at the positive news for the company”.
