LinkedIn announced the addition of 200 jobs in Dublin on the day its CEO, Jeff Weiner visited the company’s EMEA headquarters and met with Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
Established in Ireland in 2010 with just three employees, LinkedIn has since grown to become one of Ireland’s leading technology employers. Today 1,000 employees work across all product lines and support over 50 markets, from the UK to as far as Poland, Turkey and South Africa.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said:
Today’s announcement is further demonstration that our skilled people are highly attractive to the world’s leading technology firms. We have worked hard to create a positive business environment for companies like LinkedIn who are investing here because of our open economy, skilled people, and our strong relationship with Europe and progressive society which makes Ireland an attractive place for people to work and live. More broadly the Government is prioritising work with our European partners to progress the digital single market to break down the barriers to new growth opportunities across the continent.
LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner added:
At LinkedIn, we’re continuing to invest in the people and infrastructure required to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. Ireland has proven to be a very strategic location for us to headquarter our EMEA operations, and we look forward to growing our footprint in Ireland by expanding our already 1000-person team with another 200 employees.
