Tableau Software has opened a new Dublin office at The Oval in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 and has plans to grow its employee numbers to 120 employees over the next three years.

The Seattle-based company, which allows users to share data in blogs and websites, opened an office earlier this year in Paris and already has offices in London and Frankfurt.

At the office opening, An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD said: “Job creation is still this Government’s top priority and so creating an attractive and competitive business environment is essential to secure jobs and investment from world leading software companies such as Tableau. I’m delighted that Tableau has had the confidence in Ireland to expand its footprint in Dublin and to grow its workforce to over 120 people. The expansion of Tableau will also further boost Ireland’s reputation as a centre of excellence in big data, a sector with huge potential for Ireland and its economy.”

Tableau reached more than 5,000 customer accounts in the EMEA region in 2014 and recently announced international revenue growth of 83% year over year in the second quarter of 2015.

Eugene Hillery, director, International Operations commented: “Ireland is an important market for us and we are delighted to be growing our team and operations here in Dublin where there is such a talented and diverse workforce. We are seeing strong demand from a variety of sectors and from companies of all sizes who want to better see and understand their data. We currently have more than 40 employees helping to serve this important need, with a number of positions currently open across various parts of our business.”
