Data analytics company Trūata has announced plans to recruit 75 people for its newly opened headquarters in Dublin.

The new positions will be for data analysts, data scientists and engineers.

Trūata helps companies conduct analytics so they can comply with Europe's new privacy and data protection framework, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This came into effect on May 25.

The latest recruitment drive comes three months after the start-up was launched as a trust by its founding beneficiaries, Mastercard and IBM. 

Felix Marx, CEO of Trūata, said the company had identified Dublin as an engine of growth and a hotbed of technology talent. 

"The GDPR has been a powerful catalyst for innovation. The scientists and engineers that join us will be working at the forefront of this exciting area," he added.

The new jobs have been welcomed by IDA Ireland, as a boost to the local economy and a vote of confidence in the booming technology industry that has found its home in Dublin.

"Dublin continues to attract and retain a talented and well educated workforce. Ireland’s strong position on data protection is becoming a key factor in attracting data focused companies," IDA Ireland's chief executive Martin Shanahan said.
