Tech company Citrix has announced an intention to hire 150 people this year and to expand its office in Dublin’s East Point Business Park.

The new jobs will primarily be in sales and technical support. The company currently employs 225 people here.

The expanded office will have 26,000 square feet of extra space, according to a company statement, with room for 400 people.

A company spokesman said that Citrix intends to fill “up to half the roles” by the summer, before completing the recruitment drive by the end of the year. 

“We ultimately decided that Dublin is the best location to attract the right talent and build out our Inside Sales Emea practice,” said Sherif Seddik, vice president and managing director of Citrix Emea.

“Citrix recognises that the mid-market and small to medium sized business segments, combined with the move to a cloud-based model, are pivotal to our success..

“We are looking for a wide range of talent, including new graduates, experienced technical support engineers and sales staff.  We would encourage anyone looking to take their career to the next level to explore the roles available.”

As part of its expansion, Citrix is to establish a “sales academy” at its Dublin offices in order to “develop junior sales talent”, with the aim of preparing them for more senior roles with the company in the future.
