US technology company HubSpot creates 450 new roles for Ireland

4 Mar 2020

HubSpot will recruit for engineers, sales and services support staff for its global customer base in Dublin, as well as in fully remote positions across the country.

HubSpot – a US technology company that specialises in marketing, sales and customer service software – has announced plans to create 450 jobs in Ireland over the next three years.

Last year, HubSpot was named Ireland’s fifth best workplace by Great Place to Work, as well as a Best Workplace for Women in Ireland.

The company first launched its EMEA headquarters in Dublin in 2013 and since then has tripled in size. In 2016, the company announced plans to hire 320, bringing its headcount in Ireland to more than 500.

To accommodate further growth, the company will now move into a new office space called HubSpot House.

The building, located on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin, will feature such amenities as a podcast recording space, a candidate experience zone and a designated ‘culture house’ for yoga classes and rehearsals.

Business functions at the organisation will also expand in Ireland as it plans to recruit engineers to build core software, as well as sales and services support staff for its global customer base.

The new roles will be located at HubSpot’s current offices in the Docklands as well as at HubSpot House, and there will be fully remote positions available throughout the country.

JD Sherman, the company’s president and chief operating officer, commented on this growth: “We opened our EMEA headquarters in Dublin to help HubSpot’s global customers grow better, and to create an opportunity for talented individuals in product, engineering, sales, services, and marketing to have real customer impact across the market.

“Our growth in Dublin has exceeded our expectations, which is a testament to the team and their hard work in building world-class products, delivering exceptional service to our customers and creating an inclusive and award-winning culture.

“HubSpot House is a great space to build upon the fantastic work already achieved, and our commitment to talent growth will continue to drive growth for HubSpot globally.”

‘A great diversity of roles’

The new jobs at HubSpot are supported by the IDA Ireland. The agency’s CEO, Martin Shanahan, said that it is “very pleasing to see a great diversity of roles from engineering to sales being carried out” as the company continues to expand.

“I also commend the company for creating remote jobs, which will tap into the strong talent pool in regional locations,” he added.

Christian Kinnear, HubSpot vice-president and managing director for EMEA, added that its teams in Ireland are “incredibly talented and passionate” no matter their working location.
