Wrike has moved into its new EMEA headquarters location in Dublin as the US online software firm's global footprint rapidly expands.

Founded in 2006, the Silicon Valley-headquartered firm first set up a hub in Ireland in June 2015.

Dartmouth House on Grand Parade is the company's third EMEA headquarters here, established initially as part of Wrike's ambitious expansion in Europe.

Vice President of Sales and General Manager of EMEA Patricia DuChene has built the team - currently close to 80 staff - from the ground up, with the help of the IDA.

With plans to increase the workforce in Dublin by another 50 employees in the next three years, Ms DuChene said that EMEA is the company’s fastest growing region.

"There is still tremendous opportunity here, in terms of talent and market share, and we are just getting started in EMEA," she said.

Over the last three years, Wrike has increased its customer base by 532pc and its total annual recurring revenue by 347pc in the EMEA region.

The collaborative work management platform is the partner of choice for 18,000 organisations, including Google, and nearly two million users across 130 countries.

The official opening of the new Dublin office coincided with Wrike's first APAC headquarters in Melbourne, Australia and a new San Diego office.

Wrike CEO and founder Andrew Filev said that the company has tripled its worldwide headcount over the last three years and plan to double in size within the next three.

The company has grown its total annual recurring revenue by 539pc from 2014 to 2017, earning a spot on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 in North America for the fourth consecutive year in 2018.
