Twilio, a cloud communications platform for building messaging apps, is to create 100 jobs in Dublin.

The jobs will be created over the next two years as part of an expansion of its EMEA headquarters in Dublin, and roles will be created in a number of areas including sales, finance, engineering, and security.

The announcement was made during the Taoiseach’s trade mission to Silicon Valley.

Founded in 2008 by Jeff Lawson, Evan Cooke, and John Wolthuis, the company has operations in a number of locations around the globe including the US, Colombia, Ireland, England, Sweden, Germany, Hong Kong and Singapore, and employ a staff of 800.

The company had revenues of $95.9m in the three months to 30 June this year, up 49pc year-on-year.

In addition, Twilio had 43,431 active customer accounts as at 30 June, up from 30,780 active customer accounts at June 30, 2016.

Shares in the company are currently trading on the New York Stock Exchange for $30.34.

Meanwhile, Facebook yesterday announced that it is to create "several hundred" jobs in Ireland in 2018.

Ireland is home to Facebook's largest office outside of Silicon Valley, employing 2,200 people in Dublin and Cork.
