Software giant Citrix is to create 50 new jobs in Dublin, in a move that will increase the company’s headcount to 265 people.
The new jobs will include roles in sales, IT shared services and technical support.
Citrix said the investment has been made possible due to growth of Citrix technical support, sales, IT operations and SaaS divisions in the EMEA region.
The project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
Citrix has also recently invested €540,000 in its East Point facilities in Dublin to ensure it has the capacity available for future growth.
A good place to grow
“Citrix has been able to grow its business in Ireland and across Europe, the Middle East and Africa because of the fantastic staff we have here in Dublin,” said Citrix Ireland country manager Grace O’Rourke Veitch.
“The pool of highly skilled workers in the country has given us the confidence to continue to expand over the next four years as we develop technology to enable companies to work better in a dynamic and mobile world.”
A number of Citrix business units operate in Ireland, including sales, global IT operations, HR shared services and technical support teams that provide support to partners and end users across the entire EMEA region, for all Citrix mobile workspace technologies. In addition, the Dublin site has diversified to include software development activities, online content and customer self-help technology and product and program activities.
“Citrix is part of a cluster of mobile technology companies that have made Ireland an integral part of their global business,” said IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan. “Citrix has been able to find the right sort of talent here in Ireland to expand its business in markets across Europe, Middle East and Africa. IDA will use the example of Citrix’s success to attract other companies in the mobile-technology sector into Ireland.”
