Netwatch to create 50 new jobs in Ireland over the next year.

Netwatch, a world leader in proactive video monitoring setup in Carlow in 2003, has announced that it will create 50 new jobs over the next year.

The new jobs include roles in Research and Development, HR, Monitoring Hub, Sales and Technical. Most will be based in their facility in Carlow, while others will be remote.

Netwatch currently has 500+ employees globally.

Kurt Takahashi, Netwatch Global CEO, said:

“This level of expansion is being made to meet the needs of our current development and Netwatch Ireland will be the hub for this growth, the Netwatch platform developed in Carlow has been so successful that we are building our business in the US around it.”

Thanks to Netwatch; 65,000+ crimes have been prevented to date. There are 300,000+ customer sites being monitored worldwide.

Netwatch was created when a mutual friend of founders David Walsh and Niall Kelly was viciously assaulted by intruders after responding to what he assumed was a false alarm at his business premises. Both men felt there had to be a better way to protect both the first responder and business, ensuring that an individual would never again have to experience a situation of walking blindly into a real-life crime scenario.
