Taxi dispatch provider iCabbi has announced plans to create 20 new jobs at its Dublin headquarters in research and development, customer service, sales and marketing and technical support during 2016.

The company was founded in 2011 by three Irish entrepreneurs and provides taxi companies with the tools they need to compete against peer-to-peer apps like Uber and Hailo.

In four years, the team has developed arguably the most advanced cloud-based dispatch system in the world.

Gavan Walsh, founder and CEO of iCabbi, said: “2015 has been an incredible year for iCabbi. We are now the largest dispatch provider in Ireland, and throughout 2015, significantly grew our UK business, working closely with the largest and most successful taxi companies, and consolidators. We have also recently launched in the US, with 13 companies currently live, and many more scheduled for the New Year.”

He continued: “The announcement of 20 new jobs in Dublin headquarters will allow us to support these markets, and continue our ambitious expansion. There is a strong pool of high-calibre talent in Ireland, we have a fantastic existing workforce and we look forward to adding to it over the coming months.”

Richard Bruton TD added: “iCabbi is an example of an innovative Irish company achieving success as they internationalise their business. The announcement of 20 new jobs in Dublin is a great boost to the company, and I wish them every success as they continue to grow their business.”
