An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD and Minister Richard Bruton TD, today joined LogMeIn to officially open the company’s newly extended EMEA headquarters in Dublin. LogMeIn is opening the additional space with the expectation of tripling its workforce, with the creation of 90 new jobs in the next three years.
LogMeIn established its Dublin office in 2012, exiting last year with 45 full-time staff in Ireland. The new expansion is designed to help accommodate for both the acceleration of hiring and a tripling of its current Dublin workforce to 135 staff – creating 90 new jobs. The new positions will span technical roles, sales, marketing, finance, HR and IT, many of which are actively open.
“Dublin provides an excellent base for LogMeIn’s presence in this thriving market and has quickly become our international hub for attracting and supporting our rapidly expanding user and customer base,” said Michael Simon, LogMeIn’s co-founder and CEO. “The location is also a key advantage to attracting innovative thinkers and new talent to help us capitalize on some of today’s most transformative market opportunities. The ongoing investment and office expansion in Ireland is a testament to our recognition of Dublin as one of the best markets in the world for attracting top high-tech talent.”
Making the announcement, An Taoiseach said: “Ireland’s reputation as a leading location for business and investment in the cloud computing sector is further advanced by this announcement of 90 new highly skilled roles at LogMeIn’s EMEA operations in Dublin. Maintaining Ireland as an attractive location for investment is a priority for this Government as we work to create new jobs and opportunities for our people. I am delighted that today’s announcement by LogMeIn is another positive step in Ireland’s journey towards securing recovery.”
