Groupon has announced 20 new full-time roles at its site in Dublin – and intend to further expand the Irish subsidiary in coming months.
Backed by IDA Ireland, this latest recruitment drive includes positions for experienced software engineers, data scientists, computer programmers and computational marketers. There are also opportunities for newly qualified graduates in related disciplines.
Located on St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin’s city centre, the rapidly growing internet company already employs about a dozen people in Dublin and plans to fill the advertised positions before the end of the year.
Groupon’s Chief Marketing Officer, Rich Williams commented on the expansion of the newly established software development centre. “Ireland is a strategic market in Groupon’s global operations – and we want the best and brightest technology and marketing minds to help us to continue to scale.”
Welcoming the company’s recruitment drive and investment, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said, “A key part of this Government’s plans for jobs and growth is our ambition to make Ireland the internet capital of Europe. Groupon is a global brand name and a highly innovative company operating in a cutting edge part of online commerce.”
