Tech Event to Promote New Opportunities in Sector Amidst Turbulence Launches

Tech Nomads, the first-of-its-kind tech event, will take place at The Complex, Arran St East, Dublin, on Wednesday, 22 February. The inaugural event is bringing Ireland’s top tech talent face-to-face with the country’s most exciting tech companies, with hundreds of jobs on offer.

Tech Nomads is the first event of 2023 by Tech Tribes, a new event series created by the teams behind Career Zoo and Dublin Tech Summit. Tech Tribes already has partnerships with the top 30 tech employers outside of Dublin, as well as Dublin-based startups who also facilitate hybrid and remote working.

The event is a clarion call for experienced tech talent who want a perfect work/life balance with a hybrid or remote role. Tech Nomads will allow employers to place their teams, tech, and culture in front of the relevant talent in their field, ultimately strengthening their offering and facilitating growth. The event will also feature a schedule of engaging panels and tech talks from a range of industry leaders.

Tech Nomads will bring the opportunity to meet the teams from Jaguar Land Rover, Unum, Sidero, Kneat, Carelon, Ericsson, together with a host of startups and companies backed by Enterprise Ireland. The event is also supported by TechIreland and Grow Remote.

According to a new report by Zoom in collaboration with FRS Recruitment, Irish job posts offering remote and hybrid work are up 43% over 12 months, with 87% of remote and hybrid roles in the IT, accounting, and commercial sectors. In addition, figures published by the Central Statistics Office show that the digital sector employs more than 270,000 people in Ireland. It has been highlighted that employees in ICT have the highest average earnings in Ireland, with a combined wage of €8.5 billion recorded in 2019.

Speaking ahead of the inaugural Tech Nomads, Tracey Carney, CEO at Dublin Tech Summit and Catalyst Media, said:

“We are excited to launch Tech Nomads and we see this event as a sign of Ireland’s strength in tech, not only in Dublin but across the country. Throughout Ireland, there are employers that can provide exciting new roles for tech industry professionals who may have been affected by recent layoffs, whilst also offering a rewarding tech/life balance. We look forward to welcoming the industry to the event on February 22nd.”

Commenting on the partnership with Tech Tribes, Karen Cohalan, Fintech, Financial & Business Services, Enterprise Ireland, added:

“Enterprise Ireland is delighted to partner with Tech Tribes on the inaugural Tech Nomads event. The Irish enterprise sector remains stable with a strong and diversified base, particularly within Enterprise Ireland’s technology and services portfolio, where we continue to see a high demand for talent and skills. The event comes just at a time as the global tech industry is contracting and consolidating resources.

It, therefore, provides an opportunity for innovative Irish companies, ranging from SMEs to businesses of scale from right across the country, to showcase their technology, personnel and work–life benefits to a considerable pool of invaluable tech talent. We look forward to working with the team and our tech client companies in what promises to be a fruitful one-day event for both the companies recruiting and for skilled individuals on the hunt for new opportunities.”
