Ray Nolan’s XSellco to create 40 new jobs

17 Nov 20161.48k Views

Ray Nolan’s e-commerce company XSellco has beefed up its management team, and is to hire 40 new staff by the end of 2017.

The increase in staff will double employment at the company to over 80 people.

XSellco is boosting its workforce in response to demand for its e-commerce and helpdesk pricing products.

‘Great customers make great companies. We’ve been lucky to engage with folks who’ve guided our development and become evangelists for our platform’

XSellco’s platform consolidates incoming queries and order data from sales channels like Amazon, eBay, and Walmart, as well as the user’s own web store.

This helps firms keep prices down and improve customer service.

Ray Nolan’s latest digital adventure

XSellco was founded by technology entrepreneur Ray Nolan and launched its first products in mid-2014.

Nolan is a highly successful Irish technology entrepreneur, who created companies like Web Reservations International and Hostelworld. Last year, Hostelworld floated publicly, raising €180m.

His latest project XSellco has rapidly grown from six employees in early 2015 to currently employing 40 people.

The company is looking to hire software developers, sales and marketing professionals, and customer success experts.

XSellco has also recently made several high-profile senior hires, including new chief commercial officer Frank McCracken, formerly of Boxever, and chief financial officer Barry Doyle from Storyful.

The former EMEA head of Salesforce.com, John Appleby, has also joined the company’s board as a non-executive director.

“Centralising transaction and support data from multiple sales channels in real time means we don’t just manage customer queries, we actively help to answer them,” Nolan explained.

“That’s great for small and large e-tail organisations saving many hours per user per week.  Our recent investment in translation tools means we can make cross-border multi-language trade possible for non-native speakers.

“Great customers make great companies. We’ve been lucky to engage with folks who’ve guided our development and become evangelists for our platform.  Keeping this momentum is our focus for the mid-term,” Nolan added.
