Ireland is the base for a broad range of US-founded technology companies, offering a diverse catalogue of new and interesting job opportunities. 

In the last number of years the region has firmly established itself as a strong hub from which US businesses can coordinate European operations, largely due to the high level of education, the benefit of speaking English as a primary language and a favourable tax environment.
