7 US companies hiring in Ireland right now

19 Nov 2018

Many US companies have chosen Ireland as a place to set up a European base of operations or even their EMEA headquarters. These are just some of the firms hiring right now.

Ireland is lucky in that it has become a darling in the eyes of US tech firms. Some of the most revered tech companies in the US select Ireland as a place to set up a European hub, citing the fact that English is the first language and that our workforce is very highly educated.

These are just a selection of some of those US companies who have landed in Ireland over the past few years and that are hiring right now.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch is one of the world’s most well-known financial institutions. It has had a presence in EMEA for more than 90 years and has offices in 19 countries. In Ireland, it is hiring for a range of positions in the areas of tech and finance.


Avaya is an American multinational that specialises in unified business communications. It has an office in the west of Ireland, more specifically Galway, and is currently seeking applicants for finance and sales roles.
