A disruptive new online recruitment platform service was launched yesterday by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys targeting the global technology contractor industry.
Techfynder is the first dedicated platform for businesses to connect directly with IT professional contractors on a global scale. Developed by CEO and founder of Test Triangle, Praveen Madire and his team, the new service is expected to result in 50 new jobs at the Dublin-based company over the next two years. Plans for global expansion are in place, starting immediately in Ireland, UK and Germany followed by the United States in January 2020.
The development of the digital solution commenced in November 2018 after Praveen spoke with European industry leaders in technology about a way to let businesses connect directly with contractors but the difference was that everything would be contained in one platform – uploading profiles, job postings, e-signature contracts and direct interviewing and communication.
Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys said, "I am delighted to launch Techfynder, Test Triangle’s new online recruitment platform which connects employers in the IT sector and qualified IT contractors for work on specific projects worldwide. This will also result in the expansion of the company with 50 new jobs to be created over the next two years at home in Ireland. R&D has been central to the creation of this new platform and I am very pleased that the Government, through Enterprise Ireland, has been able to support the company through its R&D initiatives."
She added, "This is a further boost to Ireland’s booming indigenous tech sector, and I wish the company all the best in the exciting period ahead as they build scale and expand their reach in new international markets."
