Cloud computing giant Salesforce.com has today announced that it will generate an additional 100 jobs at a new Dublin hub.
Salesforce.com, the world's largest maker of online sales management tools, has its European regional sales headquarters located in Sandyford, Dublin 18.
The US tech firm is looking to hire qualified sales, marketing, IT and customer support professionals at the company's new state-of-the-art 50,000 square foot office complex in Leopardstown.
Salesforce.com already employs around 500 people in Ireland and is looking to fill the additional 100 roles by the end of the year.
The announcement was made today by Taoiseach Enda Kenny at the official opening of the new operations centre.
"Ireland's reputation as a digital island acting as a European hub for the digital industry is growing rapidly as more businesses like salesforce.com expand their operations here," Mr Kenny said.
Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO, IDA Ireland said: “Salesforce.com is one of the global technology industry’s fastest growing companies. The expansion of salesforce.com’s Irish operation demonstrates Ireland’s ability to attract investment from high growth companies.”
IDA Ireland has worked with Salesforce.com on its developments and employment expansions in Ireland since it first established operations in Dublin in 2000.
