Qualtrics to hire 20 people by summer as company expands EMEA operations

26 Feb 2014

Qualtrics, one of the world’s largest survey technology providers, is to hire 20 new employees before the summer at its EMEA headquarters in Dublin.

The company’s head of EMEA sales, Dermot Costello, revealed the news at the National Employment Week Conference in the Convention Centre Dublin. He said the company is trying to fill these sales positions before the start of summer.

The company opened its European headquarters in Ireland in September 2013. Qualtrics CEO Ryan Smith founded the company in 2002.

Qualtrics, which has also has offices in the US, Australia and Hong Kong, has had a bumper few years and underwent triple-digit growth in 2012 and more than doubled its workforce to 350 employees in the past year.

The Dublin office currently employs 30 people in various roles and, according to Costello, Dublin is a key digital hub.

“Our team in Ireland has grown to 30 and we have a further 20 positions to fill before the summer so anyone who might be interested should check out our website. 

“The cluster of digital companies in Dublin means the city is a hotbed of good talent and we are delighted to be able to tap into the talent base here. We are on target to grow our workforce to 150 people within three years.”

He went on to say Qualtrics will be looking towards future graduates to fill various positions.

“As well as experienced sales people, we’re actively recruiting graduates from the science, business and mathematics disciplines for a variety of roles, including sales, support and technical talent. Qualtrics provides a great opportunity for candidates who are looking for an energetic environment in which to grow their career in an emerging market.”
