Digital data firm Logentries is to double its workforce and is seeking 20 engineers. The company is looking for software developers, data scientists and ‘devops’ engineers.

Logentries was co-founded in 2010 by Dr Viliam Holub and Dr Trevor Parsons as a spin-out company from University College Dublin’s Performance Engineering Laboratory in UCD’s School of Computer Science and Informatics, after 10 years of joint research with IBM.

The company is a ‘big data’ firm and collects and analyses log event data which it turns into meaningful information for other developers, IT professionals and business analysts.

Logentries has, to date, raised $11.1 million in funding. A NovaUCD graduate company, it was the winner of the NovaUCD 2010 Start-Up Company of the Year Award and was recently awarded the NovaUCD 2013 Innovation Award.
