NGINX, the engine delivering sites and applications for web, today announced a new headquarters for EMEA in Cork, Ireland, which the company believes will lead to the creation of more than 100 jobs.
NGINX’s flagship commercial offering, NGINX Plus, extends open source NGINX with advanced features such as load balancing, web and mobile acceleration, security controls, application monitoring and management, and award-winning support for an enterprise-ready solution.
Currently, NGINX has more than 100 employees worldwide and plans to create over 100 jobs in its Cork office over the next three years in specialties including sales, marketing, finance, business development, software architecture, engineering, and research and development.
The Cork headquarters will serve existing and will provide a base to reach new customers in high growth areas, including the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and across the Nordics.
“Many of the world’s leading technology firms are expanding their presence in Ireland because of the availability of highly skilled talent, the quality of life, and its strong relationships across Europe – and NGINX is no exception,” said An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD. “We welcome NGINX for both the job and economic advancement it will bring to Ireland. The company is in the midst of incredible growth, with strong brand recognition throughout EMEA, making it a natural fit to have Cork as a launching point to the Irish market, and across the entire region.”
NGINX CEO Gus Robertson added: “By launching our EMEA headquarters in Cork we’ll be able to better serve our customers throughout the region, empowering them to deliver the best possible web experience to their end users.
“Beyond this geographical fit, Cork is strongly aligned in culture and attitude with the values carried over from our global headquarters in San Francisco, and we look forward to bringing in the best and brightest talent in the area.”
