Poppulo's software specialises in communications systems including email, 'pulse surveys' and analytics.

Its customers include Unilever, Bank of America, Nestlé, and Rolls-Royce.

Poppulo CEO Andrew O'Shaughnessy said that while the company was rapidly growing its global customer portfolio and expanding in the US, he said he was delighted to be creating high-value jobs in Ireland.

"Enterprise Ireland has been with us from the start... Supporting successful indigenous companies so that they can scale is incredibly important," he said.

A parallel expansion by the group in the US will bring Poppulo's total workforce to more than 400 over the next three years.

The group, formerly known as Newsweaver, currently employs 200, with 163 in Cork and 37 in Boston.

Earlier this year, Pennsylvania-based private equity firm Susquehanna Growth Equity (SGE) invested €30m for a minority stake in Poppulo.

SGE has previously bet more than $1bn on companies such as Payoneer and Outbrain.
