STEM on the up in Northern Ireland! Space technology firm creates 33 jobs in Belfast

The jobs include space system engineers and satellite data consultants

A Belfast-based space technology company is creating 33 STEM jobs in four years.  Bill Montgomery, from Invest NI, said it is one of the first local companies to make a major investment “as the result of opportunities that will flow out of the space sector”.

The jobs include space system engineers and satellite data consultants, generating in excess of £1.5m annually in additional salaries.

Invest NI has offered 3DEO more than £700,000 for the recruitment drive.

The UK Space Agency has been set the target of quadrupling UK revenues to £40bn by 2032 and said this can only be achieved by new firms entering the sector.

“We are working towards developing products and solutions that will enable better informed, real-time decision making in the future for defence, governments and the civic markets,” said Andy Macpherson, from 3DEO NI.
