Nitro, a leading provider of document productivity and workflow solutions, today announced an expansion into Europe with the establishment of its EMEA headquarters in Dublin.

The EMEA HQ will support and develop the company’s rapidly-growing international customer base. The new business hub will create 50 jobs across a variety of roles over the next two years and will be critical in maintaining and expanding the momentum that Nitro has already established in Europe.

Australian-founded with a global headquarters in San Francisco, Nitro simplifies the way people create, edit, sign, and share digital documents. Best known for its award-winning Adobe® Acrobat® replacement, Nitro Pro is the trusted PDF solution for over 50% of the Fortune 500 and the standard PDF software preload for PC giant Lenovo. Nitro also recently unveiled Nitro Cloud, a new service that provides powerful flexibility to businesses when sharing, signing, and collaborating with documents and underlines the company’s commitment to the paperless office, document productivity, and workflow efficiency.

Sam Chandler, Nitro’s founder and CEO said today: “Of the more than 400,000 businesses running on Nitro today, almost one-third of them are in Europe, so we’re delighted to be closer to our customers in this region. Opening in Dublin means we’re better positioned to serve even more people locally while we continue to grow, and further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to customer success both here and around the globe.”

Starting immediately, Nitro’s Dublin office is hiring for a range of positions, including multilingual sales, account management, customer service, and operations staff, all of whom will provide targeted support to Nitro customers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Additional engineering, product, and marketing roles are planned for later next year.

Chandler commented further: “The most important factor for Nitro in our evaluation of potential EMEA HQ locations was access to strong local talent and Ireland was the frontrunner from the outset. In addition to a welcoming business environment, a first-rate education system, and the natural affinity between the Irish, Aussie and American cultures, Ireland is rich in a highly-skilled workforce experienced in growing European operations for technology businesses, both large and small, thanks to over 20 years of inward investment from companies like Apple, Microsoft, Salesforce, Google, and Facebook. We want to help invest in and grow that local talent pool by building a sophisticated operation in Dublin supporting almost all aspects of our business, from sales and customer service to engineering and marketing.”
