80 data science jobs announced as Tableau expands Dublin office

15 Sep 2015

Analytics visualisation company Tableau Software has opened its new Dublin office in Ballsbridge, aiming to hire 80 people to join its existing workforce of 40 in the Irish capital.

The company, originally from Seattle, set up an Irish operation around two years ago, with a new office in Paris earlier this year joining London and Frankfurt as European hubs.

“Ireland is an important market for us and we are delighted to be growing our team and operations here in Dublin where there is such a talented and diverse workforce,” said Eugene Hillery, director of international operations.

“We currently have more than 40 employees helping to serve this important need, with a number of positions currently open across various parts of our business.”

The announcement comes as Ireland evolves into a major international hub for big data and analytics.

As we reported earlier this month, the wave is big and it’s worth catching.

“Tableau is experiencing strong growth in demand in the EMEA region,” said Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland.

“Tableau’s decision to be in the heart of Dublin strengthens Ireland’s existing ‘big data’ cluster and complements IDA’s strategy of winning investments in this important and thriving sector.”
