Cork, Ireland, November 26, 2023 –(PR.com)– Granite Digital, the fastest-growing digital agency in Ireland, today announces that it is growing its team in Ireland by 10 people by the end of 2024. It has also been appointed as a Kentico Gold Partner which will provide Granite with an additional €1.2M revenue over the next 12 months. This will enable Granite Digital to reach annual revenues of more than €15 million.
The new roles will be in Software Engineering, Data Science (Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning), DevOps and Technology Consulting and are being made available across Granite’s offices in Cork, Dublin and Galway. This will grow the team to 150 employees.
Powering over 35,000 websites across 120 countries, Kentico is an award-winning provider of digital experience platforms that enable businesses to drive better outcomes with fewer resources. This new partnership with Kentico will support Granite Digital’s plan to drive customer acquisition and grow its business across Ireland, the US and Europe.
Achieving the Gold Partnership, which signifies expertise in Kentico’s technology and dedication to customer success, aligns with Granite Digital’s strategic growth. Acquiring 14 digital services businesses, including Continuum, Connector, Webtrade, MediaOne, Apps Made Easy, New York-based LCM 247, and most recently Armour, further establishes Granite as Ireland’s largest independent digital agency.

As the only Irish headquartered Kentico Gold Partner, Granite Digital customers will benefit from a powerful set of tools, including Microsoft .Net Technologies, digital strategy development, web design, SEO, and content management system (CMS) capabilities powered by Kentico’s digital experience platform.
