Technology and business service firms to create 231 jobs in Dublin

Eight companies from Europe and the US are to create 231 jobs in Dublin, it was announced today.

The investments are supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

The new jobs will be spread across the technology and business service sectors with a range of activities such as sales & marketing, software services and tech support.

Global technology company Affirma Consulting aims to make 50 jobs available at its Dublin office, which will offer the full services of Affirma’s business units, by 2020.

SentryOne is opening its first international office, and plans to employ 50 people in sales, engineering, R&D, product management and customer support by the end of 2021.

Sojern plans to more than double in size by 2020 growing to a team of 56 with the creation of 36 new jobs during the expansion of its European headquarters in Dublin.

ADvendio, Enfusion, Krypt Inc and Lifesize have all pledged to create 20 jobs each, with Vivino set to create 15 jobs.

Speaking at today’s announcement Minister Heather Humphreys TD said she warmly welcomed the news.

"Ireland has indeed been the beneficiary of significant FDI from some of the biggest companies in the world," she said.

"We intend to be just as successful in securing investment from companies in new and emerging sectors. All of the companies here today, who are at the forefront of their technologies, have been identified as having high growth potential.

"It is terrific news that they have decided to locate in Ireland. I look forward to their future expansion here and wish them all the best."

Welcoming the announcement, Martin Shanahan CEO, IDA Ireland said: “IDA Ireland’s high growth businesses represent an increasingly important part of Ireland’s high tech business ecosystem. Ireland remains a compelling location for early-stage start-up companies to service a growing customer base in Europe.”
