ReliaQuest to create 100 jobs in South Dublin
ReliaQuest is to create 100 jobs over the next three years with the opening its first European office in Leopardstown.
The roles being created at the US cyber security company are across the areas of security engineers, analysts and content developers.
Upon completion of the office opening and hiring process around a quarter of ReliaQuest’s global workforce will be based in Leopardstown.
"We chose Dublin for several reasons, including its strong talent, the ease of travel back and forth from our headquarters in the US and around the rest of Europe, and the openness and focus on collaboration fostered by Ireland," Brian Murphy, ReliaQuest CEO, said.
"All of these things make Dublin a great place to be."
Founded in 2007, ReliaQuest today employs over 300 staff across its three office locations in Tampa, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Dublin.
The news was welcomed by Fine Gael Senator and spokesman on European Affairs, Neale Richmond, who said it was "merely the latest in a long line of good news stories for jobs in our area."
"Ireland is quickly becoming the obvious gateway into the wider European market for a plethora of American companies, particularly in the tech sector," Mr Richmond said.
"The fact that Ireland has a growing, well-educated and flexible workforce with a rapidly increasing graduate output also compliments our unique geographic location," he added.
ReliaQuest is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
