Globoforce’s Dublin headcount is set to soar with the technology company creating 100 new positions over the next three years.
Already employing 210 people in Dublin, and 400 globally, Globoforce’s international growth has seen the company embark on a significant expansion.
With that, a new 45,000 sq ft Dublin HQ at Park West is making room for a three-year build-up of its workforce, with 50 roles out of a total 100 to be filled this year.
The new jobs will range from graduate level upwards, taking in the likes of software development, software engineering, user experience, analysis, finance, customer service and customer success.
“These are very exciting times for Globoforce,” said Eric Mosley, co-founder and CEO of the company, which started with just five employees in 1999.
The new office in Park West overlooks the Grand Canal, with digital walls, expansive windows, open and closed booths, collaboration spaces, relaxation areas and a game area.
“Building an award-winning culture starts with your employees and in Globoforce, we have the best people in the business,” said Mosley.
“Through our social recognition platform, we currently help more than 3m employees around the world have positive experiences at work. As the company expands, we have a strategy of reinvesting profits into research and development, driving thought leadership and innovation across all our platforms.”
Dublin has seen its fair share of jobs announcements in recent days.

Esri Ireland is also expanding, with aims of increasing its Geographic Information Systems software from annual revenues of €7m in 2016 to €10m by the end of the decade.
To do that, it has revealed plans to up its headcount from its current level of 50 to 85 over the next two years, with a series of technical roles to be created, most of which will be in the capital.
Elsewhere, Shire has moved its Dublin base amid a surge in operations, and plans to double its staff to 300 employees during the summer.
