  • Neueda has selected a building on Malaga's Parque Technológico to move some of its staff from Belfast and to create fifteen new jobs

A Northern Ireland-based software development company has chosen the Costa del Sol to set up its Spanish base.

Neueda, a firm based in Belfast and which specialises in software delivery, training and consultancy, will invest 560,000 euros in the move to Malaga’s Parque Technológico (PTA). Some fifteen jobs are expected to be created.

The company has explained that the decision to come to the area was in part based on its desire to increase its European presence ahead of Brexit and also to provide a base for some of its key employees who are from Malaga and will be moving home to work.

Paddy O’Hagan, Chief Operating Officer said: “At Neueda, we are fortunate to be able to attract, develop and retain talented, passionate people from diverse backgrounds. Given the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, we decided to establish an office in the eurozone to protect employee mobility and provide options for our current and future employees.

“Malaga provides us with another rich location to attract technical talent across Europe. We have a fantastic track record of recruiting from the region which has strong cultural alignment and excellent transport links with Northern Ireland which will ensure that it will quickly integrate with our teams in Belfast and London.”

Neueda was funded in 2006 and is one of the leading technological companies in Northern Ireland.
