Eirtight is an award-winning web and mobile technology and software development services provider. We have bases in Dublin and London, from where we partner with clients in over 30 countries to deliver solutions that enable them to do business more efficiently and at lower cost.
We are a leading Microsoft Gold Cloud Partner and a member of their inner 'Azure Circle' which recognises the quality and sophistication of the solutions we build. We've deployed these innovative solutions all over the world and have generated millions in savings and directly contributed to saving hundreds of lives in countries such as Haiti.
The quality of what we do is so consistently high due to our laser-like focus on ensuring detailed processes are put in place around every project we are engaged on. As a result we are experts at being able to deliver where other providers have failed.
Our team is our single greatest asset. We hire only the most exceptional individuals - intelligent, technically gifted and with uncompromising attention to detail. This is reflected not only in the quality of the software we design and build, but in the enthusiasm our clients have for the members of our team they engage with.
All of this is summarised in our mission statement, which is simple:
To build outstanding technology solutions that are intuitive and accessible."
We believe that technology should enable rather than restrict your business. Everything we do is aimed at ensuring successful project delivery and building client trust. We build long-term relationships with our clients, partners, suppliers and employees and have broad industry knowledge and experience with a particular focus on the Media/Marketing, Telecoms, Financial Services and Technology sectors.
When you have a challenging technical problem, when you can't afford to risk system down-time or failure, or when you need a team you can rely on to deliver a solution that has the flexibility to adapt and grow as your business needs evolve, talk to Eirtight to see how refreshing it is to have a technical partner who you can trust. We love what we do, and we know that you'll love what we can do for your business.
Why should you choose Eirtight as a technical partner?
We believe the best way for you to understand the value that Eirtight can add to your organisation is by asking our existing clients what they value most about Eirtight. We've done exactly that - here is a summary of the feedback we received:
We are always happy to refer new clients to our existing clients for references, and the testimonials on the Our Clients page provide a summary of how many of our clients view their engagement with us.
So we've looked at what our existing clients think about us. So what can you expect when you choose Eirtight as a technical partner?
The key to a successful development methodology is simplicity and effectiveness. Our software development models offer the following benefits:
Eirtight uses a combination of both Agile and traditional development methodologies for software development projects. The Microsoft Solutions Framework is employed for developing and managing software projects from conception through to implementation.
Usually, this means that we break a software project down into manageable pieces which are allocated 3-4 week long "sprints". At the end of each sprint we present the completed software requirements to the client for review. At this point the client gives us feedback on areas to improve and change based on their growing understanding of how their business solution is becoming a reality.
We also work with detailed specifications that have been developed prior to project commencement, as we find this delivers a cost-effective solution while allowing for changes to be made during the development process.
We find most experienced business managers need to be able to visualise a software solution before their real intellect and experience is drawn out to improve the solution. Therefore we repeat the cycle of Define, Create, Review until such time as the software solution is what the customer needs. Often, the finished product is different from what the client thought they needed initially.
It is this process of allowing the software developers and business managers to get together in a structured and regulated way which ultimately delivers the key benefit in an Eirtight software project. This process is always facilitated by an experienced project manager who is skilled in getting the best out of this opportunity.
We use Microsoft Project and our own internal project management and customer support tools for managing projects.
Eirtight can offer a fixed-price or time & materials-based quotations for software development work, depending on client requirements.
There are typically four options for how we engage with your business, depending on your requirements:

Kieran Dundon – Co-founder & Chairman
Possessing what some would describe as a frightening amount of knowledge and experience across a range of technology disciplines, we like to refer to Kieran as our in-house IT-industry veteran. He has overseen and directed our growth into the dynamic, passionate company we are today, while at the same time educating us all in the nuances of preparing and enjoying the finest Cuban coffee.
Kieran has previously held senior management roles in a number of IT organisations, including CTO of Stockbyte and founder of QM4. He has also held senior technical roles such as chief architect in Dell and development manager in Adest and GoIreland where he built one of the first ever international travel websites.
With formidable knowledge of Microsoft technologies in particular, Kieran's main area of expertise is with client-server/web technologies, now known as Cloud, as well as the design and deployment of robust, scalable database systems. On a day-to-day basis Kieran is responsible for managing the company and coordinating interactions and deliveries between our teams in Ireland, the UK, Romania and Greece, and our clients in over 30 countries.
To relax, Kieran likes to hill walk near his home in the Wicklow mountains. He is a keen off road biker and loves board and dinghy sailing.

Eirtight has an innovative partner programme that enables your business to exploit our extensive resources and experience to provide a specific business/technical service to your clients, or expand your general service offering.
We have partnered with other leading technology companies such as Microsoft, cInfinity and Ascentn and can provide whatever resources you need to quickly scale up to meet specific short/long-term project requirements.
Eirtight offers three types of partner relationship, depending on your circumstances and requirements:
Generally, this type of partner operates in a single horizontal or vertical industry sector. Eirtight becomes a strategic partner to complement their existing specialist skills. The client benefits from the broader service offering available from their consultant, who becomes a trusted single point of contact for the delivery of a larger-scale solution.
IT Services Vendor
This type of partner is a business or organisation that supplies specific IT-related products and/or services. They are looking to increase their service offering so they can cross-sell their core offering to a wider market, or meet the increased demands of their existing client base. Eirtight becomes a strategic partner, thus allowing them to scale their offering either generally, or as part of an individual project or client engagement.
Systems Integrators usually have a very clearly defined service offering of expertise in a specific industry or product. Projects are usually large, complex engagements that span multiple areas of the client organisation, often over an extended period of time, with teams of consultants and field experts delivering a solution to a defined issue/issues. Eirtight can be a valuable strategic partner to such organisations, allowing them to offer a more comprehensive service to their clients without dedicating high-value in-house resources to non-core technical integration work. Eirtight can offer a range of specialist services depending on the project and client requirements, and has extensive experience in partnering with such organisations to deliver complex projects on time and on budget.

Eirtight takes our corporate social responsibilities very seriously.
We have formed close links with local universities in both Dublin, Ireland and Brasov, Romania, where we have a graduate internship and training programme which offers suitably qualified graduates paid work placements with further training and ultimately employment opportunities for the most outstanding candidates.
We have also sponsored local events in both Ireland and Romania, and donate time to student and community business development projects regularly.
We are environmentally aware, and have implemented Reduce, Reuse and Recycle policies wherever possible in the organisation. We also focus on minimising energy use by turning off computers, lights and other electrical equipment when not in use, and switching to renewable energy providers where possible.
Finally, Eirtight works with a number of charity and voluntary organisations, both in Ireland and overseas, and offers reduced rates and discounted service fees for such clients. Examples include the St. Vincent de Paul in Ireland and Voila Foundation in Haiti. We also support a number of community and youth hospitals in Romania.
