AdRoll to create 100 new jobs in Dublin office

26 Jun 2014

AdRoll, one of the world’s largest adoptive advert retargeting platforms, has launched new offices in Dublin today and plans to expand its European operations by doubling its office space and hiring 100 additional staff.

Last March, AdRoll announced it was going to move its new office and revise hiring plans upwards to 120 staff with expansion in Europe, due to the company’s growth of more than 270pc, which has far exceeded expectations since its launch in the region in 2013.

Currently employing 75 people in Dublin, AdRoll will be hiring across all areas, including sales, finance, account management, business development, and engineering to support customers in a number of languages throughout the EMEA region, with the first phase of 100 employees to be in place by the end of 2014.

AdRoll has also confirmed that after closing a funding round of US$70m last April, it will be doubling its Dublin office space to more than 20,000 sq feet at Burlington Plaza.

AdRoll’s CEO Aaron Bell said the company is excited about the talent is has found in Ireland and the response AdRoll has received since entering the European market.

“In just a few years, retargeting has become as essential as search engine marketing for every digital marketer, and we see the EMEA region as an engine for growth in the years ahead.”

IDA Ireland’s CEO Barry O’Leary welcomed the jobs announcements, saying, “Today’s expansion by AdRoll in Dublin adds to Ireland’s reputation as the premier location for fast-growing innovative companies. Dublin is a recognised European hub of international tech and multilingual talent which continues to attract emerging, high-growth companies like AdRoll, who aspire to become the MNCs (multinational corporations) of the future.”
