People working as carbon specialist come from many different backgrounds. In fact one of my former colleagues came from a genetics background, while the others were from an engineering background.

In Ireland at the moment it is quite hard to get into the carbon space so you may have to go abroad for training.

To pursue a career in engineering it is important to have a strong technical background.


The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

40 new jobs for Dublin with tech firm BrowserStack

Technology company BrowserStack has announced plans to create 40 new jobs.

BrowserStack is a cloud based service with offices in San Francisco and Mumbai. It allows web developers to perform tests on website changes quickly, thus eliminating the need for expensive in-house testing infrastructure. 

The new jobs will be based in Dublin and recruitment is already underway, to be completed within 2-3 years. Details of current vacancies and job opportunities with Browserstack can be found here.

BrowserStack currently supports more than 1,100 combinations of browsers, operating systems and devices. It has over 35,000 customers in more than 130 countries including the likes of Twitter, Microsoft, AirBnB and Mastercard. 

Co-founder Ritesh Arora said the Dublin expansion is an important step towards building a best-in-class global testing infrastructure "This will allow us to provide a better experience to our existing customers and support new product launches. We are also excited to expand our presence in Dublin and look forward to benefiting from its deep talent pool."

IDA Ireland chief executive, Martin Shanahan, said the BrowerStack investment will assist the agency in attracting more Indian technology companies to Ireland. "BrowserStack is a rapidly growing company with significant potential given its leading position in the market and the increasing demand for smart devices and availability of wireless internet connectivity."

The development is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
