I’ll keep this short and to the point ..
We are currently hiring for a number of positions and we plan on advertising several more over the next couple of weeks.
If you’d like to see all our current vacancies go here.
So why would you want to work for us?
Last year I asked our current staff what they liked about working for the company and the replies were really interesting. Based on those answers we came up with an updated “pitch”:
Blacknight (https://www.blacknight.com/ is Ireland’s leading web hosting company and ICANN-accredited domain registrar. Based in Carlow and 100% Irish-owned, Blacknight provides innovative solutions to more than 90,000 customers in 170 countries, with dedicated servers and colocation, a comprehensive range of Microsoft Windows and Linux-based hosting plans, domain name registration services, email, productivity and digital marketing tools.
Growing from a startup in 2004, our success is built on an enviable reputation for customer service and support. Customers tell us that they love our friendly, personal service, and they describe our staff as ‘knowledgeable’, ‘helpful’, ‘excellent’ and ‘efficient’.
Our staff say they love working in an environment that’s positive and productive, informal yet professional, and with a community atmosphere.
Our Carlow headquarters provides a free canteen with a varied lunch menu, and endless tea, coffee and fresh fruit throughout the day. We hold regular social events and enjoy the quality of life in the South East, just an hour from Dublin.
The dress code is relaxed and the atmosphere is stimulating. We work as a team to solve problems, devise solutions and satisfy customers, using the latest enterprise computing technology and standards, and in partnership with industry leaders. There’s always more to learn, and no two days are alike.

We operate data centres in Carlow and Dublin and are certified to ISO 27001 for information security management systems.
