200 new cloud computing jobs for Dublin
A cloud computing company is to create 200 jobs at its Dublin operations.
Workday, which devises systems for finance and human resources, has opened its new European headquarters in the city with plans to take on the new staff over the next three years.
The expansion comes after the company created 200 jobs in its early development over the last 16 months and after more than 100 companies with a base in Europe signed contracts with it.
The new Dublin office at Smithfield will focus on product and technology development, customer support, services, data centre operations and sales.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: "The continued investment in our economy by the likes of Workday is a vote of confidence in the Irish economy and our talented workforce."
Workday's EMEA chief technology officer Annrai O'Toole, said: "Dublin is a growing hotbed of highly motivated, highly skilled technologists and we are actively expanding our team to drive our growth and customer success."
Jobs Minister Richard Bruton added: "Cloud computing is a sector which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs, and Workday's continued drive to create jobs in Dublin related to this area, and building on its previous commitments, is a major boost."
