60 tech jobs created as eShopWorld expands

22 Jun 2016

Irish-owned eShopWorld has announced plans to create 60 jobs across its operation over the next six months on the back of significant growth.

EShopWorld staffing numbers are about to skyrocket, with the 60 coming on stream by the end of 2016 coming after the e-commerce company ranked highly on Deloitte’s fastest-growing tech company list last year.

The newly-created vacancies that will be filled in the next six months are in the areas of technology and support services, and are based across each of the company’s offices in Dublin, Newry, Amsterdam and the US.

The company provides a “localised international shopping experience” to customers, with its expansion since being set up in Dublin back in 2010 dramatic.

The service it provides basically creates a more local website for the retailer that shoppers are viewing, with currencies, duties, taxes and payment methods tailored according to geography.

“The next 18 months promises to be an exciting time for us, and I look forward to making further announcements around a number of projects that are in development as the company continues to grow,” said Tommy Kelly, CEO of eShopWorld.

“I am thrilled today to be announcing the creation of 60 new jobs, having set out only six years ago as a small specialised team in Dublin. It really is such an achievement to have come so far.

“Our success is down to the tireless efforts and dedication of an exceptional group of people who have gone above and beyond to make it happen.”

Last year, Deloitte ranked the company the fastest-growing indigenous tech company in Ireland, with 9,900pc growth over a four-year spell.
