Evolve Technologies was founded in 2000 by Mike Linnane in response to the significant demand from many organisations for a dedicated and accessible software development partner. Based originally in Limerick’s National Technology Park and then in Lahinch, Co. Clare, the company’s development offices moved to Ennistymon Enterprise Centre, Ennistymon, Co. Clare in 2012. The company has also since set up offices in Dublin, Limerick and Cork.
To “evolve” means to grow, develop, advance, progress, expand and transform, and at Evolve Technologies we love to be part of our customers’ evolution as much as we ourselves love to continually innovate and move forward. Developing long-term partnerships with our customers, we support and cheer them on every step of the way.
We are defined by our core values of Boldness, Enthusiasm, Resourcefulness, Dependability and Attentiveness. Our strength is in our small size, and we are agile, accessible and highly in tune with the unique requirements of each of our customers. We strive to be top of our game and we think differently. Always friendly and approachable, we are proud to receive much of our business from recurring customers as well as personal word-of-mouth recommendations and referrals.
Our team is moved by giving back and the issues of ethical management and leadership, fair-trade, globalisation, sustainability and collaboration with not-for-profit and charitable organisations. We want to help make a change for the better and some of our voluntary projects include partnering with Pemba Support Ireland to help ship 130 PC’s to Zanzibar and the leading-edge development of the Artificial Pancreas. Regularly featured in the media, our company’s voluntary projects have been recognised by a variety of publications over the years.
Living and working locally, social enterprise is of course very important to us, as is work-life balance. Located beside the popular seaside village of Lahinch on the west coast of Ireland, the area is renowned for its excellent surfing opportunities, long beaches, world-class golf course and stunning scenery. In summer months, visitors flock to the area to holiday and enjoy walking, fishing, great nightlife and a range of other activities and we find the inspiring local landscape extremely conducive to our innovative work. We tend to be busier in the winter so we can free up a little time to enjoy the finer summer weather.
Evolve Technologies is a member of the cutting-edge Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) community and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). We are also an official Microsoft Partner and an Industrial Partner with Applied Research for Connect Health (ARCH).
