Careers at Randox Teoranta
Welcome to Donegal. Would you like to stay?
Randox Teoranta in Dungloe is offering you the chance to continue your career right here in Donegal.
In the past Donegal has certainly been well-known for its outstanding natural beauty, but perhaps not so well-known for cutting-edge science. We appreciate that was once the case.
But what if we told you you could have it all?
Times have changed.
To be able to engage with world-leading science you no longer need to look past Donegal. It’s happening right here, right now, in our corner of the world.
It’s happening at Randox Teoranta.
An investment in science.
€25m has been invested into developing this next-generation life-science, engineering, research and manufacturing centre in Dungloe and in the past year alone the team have:
– Developed a revolutionary test for Alzheimer’s disease
– Designed drugs testing software to be used by police officers in criminal investigations
– Engineered new technologies with the ability to detect disease and save lives.

Current R&D projects
This year our team continue to work on cutting-edge research for key health issues including kidney disease, thyroid disease and gastro intestinal disorders.
But don't just take it from us...
Here’s what some of our team members had to say about working with Randox Teoranta in Donegal.
Dr. Sarah Gildea, Senior Research and Development Scientist
I returned to Donegal to work in Randox Teoranta, after having worked in the Irish Equine Centre in Kildare for almost thirteen years. I now work in Randox’s veterinary diagnostics division – I’m delighted to have been able to find work in my area of expertise so close to where I grew up, and for a company as prestigious as the sponsor of the Randox Health Grand National. It’s great that Randox is providing highly-skilled job opportunities for people like me, who want to return home. We also offer jobs for placement students and graduates so our team is a great mix of different ages, backgrounds, experiences and interests.
David McIntyre, Mechanical Engineering Graduate
I first came to Randox Teoranta as a motivated final year engineering student searching for the perfect place to begin my career, and my first impression didn’t disappoint. It’s a top class facility and is packed with the latest technology. I work alongside scientists and engineers who are the best in the business – working on the development of tests for the early diagnosis of kidney and liver disease for example. Here in Randox Teoranta we develop diagnostic products that save lives, and I’m so proud to be a part of it.
Harisree PS, Electrical and Electronic Design Engineer
One of the draws for me when making the decision to move from India to Donegal was knowing that I would be able to experience such a unique lifestyle – working on world-leading science whilst also enjoying the benefits of living in an area of outstanding natural beauty. I don’t think there are many places where you can work on research into Alzheimer’s disease one day, and the next climb to the top of a mountain to witness a view as awe-inspiring as the one from the top of Slieve League. It truly is a great place to work.
Jo-Ann Pearson, Software Developer
I studied at LYIT as a mature student, graduated in 2013, and started work in Randox Teoranta in September that same year. I was delighted to find such fantastic work in Donegal – I live in Letterkenny so it’s only a short journey to Dungloe. I’m able to take part in lots of social activities with my family and friends, including school events and traditional music festivals, and we always look forward to the annual Wild Atlantic Adventure Race and The Mary from Dungloe Festival, which are both sponsored by Randox Teoranta.
Dr Davide Massa, Immunoassay R&D Scientist
I did my degree in Biology in Italy and then spent three years at Trinity College Dublin completing my PhD in Biochemistry and Immunology. I heard about Randox in 2015 when I was working on a blood cancer immunological assay. I liked the sound of working in a company that had such a global impact – an incredible 5% of the world’s population, which is over 370 million people, receive diagnosis using our products. It is a real privilege that in my job I am able to meet and work with other world-leading scientists from all over the globe.
We believe Randox Teoranta is one of the best places to work – but don’t just take our word for it, apply and see for yourself!
We are growing fast, and have plenty of opportunities for smart and skilled people to join us.
