Minister for Business, Heather Humphreys TD has today announced the creation of 231 jobs in Dublin across eight companies.

The IDA Ireland-backed companies are from Europe and the US, and the roles being created fall across a number of areas including sales, marketing, engineering, R&D, product management and customer support.

Speaking at today’s announcement Minister Humphreys said she warmly welcomed the announcement.

"Ireland has indeed been the beneficiary of significant FDI from some of the biggest companies in the world," Minister Humphreys said.

"We intend to be just as successful in securing investment from companies in new and emerging sectors."

Among the companies creating the jobs is tech consultancy firm Affirma Consulting, which is creating 50 roles, software solutions company SentryOne, which is also creating 50 roles, and cloud based advertising sales and booking software solution company Advendio, which will create 20 jobs.

Companies Sojern, Enfusion, Krypt, and Lifesize will each create between 36 and 20 jobs, while the world’s most downloaded wine app Vivino will create 10 jobs across its customer experience, sales and operations verticals in Dublin.

"IDA Ireland’s high growth businesses represent an increasingly important part of Ireland’s high tech business ecosystem," Martin Shanahan CEO of IDA Ireland, said.

"Ireland remains a compelling location for early stage start-up companies to service a growing customer base in Europe," he continued.
