Web publishing platform player Squarespace is to create 100 new jobs in Dublin, the IDA revealed this morning. The New York company’s platform allows anyone to easily create professional blogs, web pages, stores and galleries without touching a line of code.

“We chose Dublin as our first location outside of New York City over many others in Europe,” said Anthony Casalena, founder and CEO of Squarespace. “Dublin offers us a friendly, young, and talented workforce in a vibrant centre city location. It’s the perfect choice for Squarespace.”

Squarespace’s all-in-one service provides hosting, content management, domain names, social integrations, e-commerce, and 24-hour customer support.

The Squarespace operation in central Dublin will serve Squarespace customers around the globe and will include a variety of customer care roles.

Recruitment for positions at Squarespace has already begun.

"The decision by Squarespace to base its headquarters in Dublin is a signal of Ireland’s growing reputation as the internet capital of Europe,” Taoiseach Enda Kenny said.

“This means great opportunities for our bright, highly skilled workforce, and the Government is working to attract further investment through our Action Plan for Jobs. We are determined to foster a supportive and flexible enterprise environment so that Ireland’s digital economy can continue to grow. I wish Squarespace every success in their new headquarters and offer them the continued support of the Irish Government as their company develops here."

IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary said IDA formed a division three years ago specifically tasked with finding high-growth companies, like Squarespace.

“From our first contact with the firm in New York almost 12 months ago, we have been assisting Squarespace in their plan to open an office in Ireland. Squarespace will join a number of other IDA-backed internet companies in the Dublin area,” O’Leary explained.

Editor John Kennedy is an award winning technology journalist.
