Fleetmatics has announced its intension to add up to 75 new R&D jobs at their global HQ in Tallaght, Dublin by 2018.

The company, a provider of mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses, was founded in Ireland in 2004 in Templeogue, Dublin.

Fleetmatics completed its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in 2012, and employs over 1,200 people worldwide. The announcement today would bring the company’s total employee headcount in Ireland to over 200.

The company reported total revenue of $284.8 million in 2015, an increase of 23% compared to $231.6 million in 2014.

Peter Mitchell, co-founder and chief technology officer, Fleetmatics, said: “While we are growing and expanding Fleetmatics across our major international markets, it is important that we continue to invest here where it all began.”

He continued: “Here in Ireland we are spoiled with an incredible talent pool in R&D. And we attract them to Fleetmatics by offering engineers and product managers an opportunity to work on leading edge UX, SaaS, mobile, IoT and data analytics projects – all of which help rapidly transform our customers’ businesses and truly make a difference. And of course, they get to be involved in a great Irish tech story.”

The expansion plans also include the development of Fleetmatics’ new Network Operations Centre (NOC) in Tallaght, Dublin. The building will consolidate engineering resources to foster closer collaboration and quicker response times for monitoring, maintenance, scale and support of software and infrastructure.
