Software firm has the Wrike stuff to create 30 new jobs

21 Oct 2016272 Shares

Next-generation productivity player Wrike is to create 30 new jobs in Dublin, with plans to increase their staff total to 80 over the next three years.

Wrike began operations in Dublin over one year ago, but quickly outgrew its office space and has outpaced its own expectations for its team growth.

Founder and CEO, Andrew Filev, said that the company currently employs 25 in Dublin and plans on increasing that total to 80 over the next three years – a number well above the 50 jobs projected when it selected Dublin as its European headquarters in 2015.

Wrike is in the vanguard of a new business software movement where demand for new collaboration tools is skyrocketing, as companies look for ways to maintain employee productivity.

Customers include Google, Hootsuite, AT&T, Adobe and Hawaiian Airlines.

Record pace of growth for Wrike

“We are impressed by the tech community in Ireland and aim to build a dynamic and ambitious team in Dublin that will support Wrike’s fast growth and dedicated customer service,” said Filev.

“We have grown at a record pace over the past few years and our European headquarters will market and support Wrike prospects and customers across Europe.”

The firm also recently opened a new data centre in Amsterdam.

To help support this growth, the company has rounded out its European leadership team, adding Alexander Belenky as VP of Sales, EMEA. Previously, Belenky served as head of large customer sales at Google’s EMEA headquarters in Dublin, where he directed business and sales operations across the company’s wide range of solutions.

“Wrike’s decision to establish its European headquarters in Dublin is a very positive endorsement of Ireland’s reputation as a tech hub in Europe and the location of choice for innovative, high-growth companies,” said IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan.
