231 new jobs announced in Dublin across 8 high-growth companies

7 Mar 2018

231 new jobs, created with the support of IDA Ireland, are being offered by companies operating in a variety of disciplines in business and technology.

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys, TD, has revealed today (7 March) the creation of 231 jobs in Dublin across eight high-growth companies from Europe and the US.

The influx of foreign direct investment (FDI) is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

Future Human

The eight companies represent a variety of disciplines in the technology and business sectors. There is a range of roles on offer in areas such as sales and marketing, software services, and tech support.

“Ireland has indeed been the beneficiary of significant FDI from some of the biggest companies in the world. We intend to be just as successful in securing investment from companies in new and emerging sectors,” said Minister Humphreys, speaking at the announcement.

“All of the companies here today, who are at the forefront of their technologies, have been identified as having high-growth potential.

“It is terrific news that they have decided to locate in Ireland. I look forward to their future expansion here and wish them all the best.”

Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, also welcomed the news and extolled Ireland’s attractiveness on a global scale for early-stage businesses.

“IDA Ireland’s high-growth businesses represent an increasingly important part of Ireland’s high-tech business ecosystem.

“Ireland remains a compelling location for early-stage start-up companies to service a growing customer base in Europe.”

IDA Ireland has focused more on early-stage businesses as part of its strategy of late. It is through this strategy that a lot of project wins were achieved, such as Indeed.com, Riot Games and Etsy.
