Spearline Labs, the world’s largest toll and toll-free number testing provider has announced that it is hiring 20 people at its Skibbereen base, as it looks to double its workforce over the next 18 months. The expansion is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Enterprise Ireland.
The company, which was founded in 2003 by Kevin Buckley (CEO) and Matthew Lawlor (CTO), has a global presence in 50 countries and works with some of the world’s most influential businesses. It is the number one testing provider of choice for Fortune 100™ companies.
Supported by a 24/7 testing team, using servers around the world, the industry-leading platform allows companies to check that their numbers are active and operational. It also measures call quality to gain an overview of issues, which in turn leads to universal understanding of customer experience. To date, Spearline Labs has completed over 10 million tests with a 400 per cent increase in daily tests from this time last year.
The company is currently investing over €1million in new products which will be ready for market from early next year and will represent 33 per cent of the company’s revenue by 2017. The primary focus of this investment will be on mobile line testing, which will further broaden Spearline Lab’s offering.
