Indeed, the world’s most comprehensive search engine for jobs, has opened its new EMEA headquarters in Dublin and plans to hire 50 new employees in 2012. Indeed's EMEA headquarters will bring its sales and customer support functions closer to the company's expanding international client base. Indeed plans to help companies across EMEA maximize return on their recruitment spend, while continuing to offer the best job search experience for job seekers.
The new jobs will be in sales, client services, business development, finance and operations. Indeed is actively hiring in Dublin, particularly native speakers of European languages and multilingual candidates.
Established in 2004, Indeed has grown rapidly, with staff doubling year over year for the past two years. The company has also enjoyed strong traffic growth and now has over 60 million users worldwide, making Indeed the world’s most popular job search service, with sites in more than 50 countries and 26 languages. Indeed currently has four offices in the US and an office in London, with plans for further international expansion.
“Dublin has proved itself as an ideal location for high-growth technology companies like Indeed. Our new base gives us an opportunity to tap into an incredible source of talent, both locally and from the rest of Europe”, said Rony Kahan, co-founder of Indeed. “This is an important step in our evolution and will help us to continue to be the best place for job seekers to find a job and for employers to find the right candidates. Establishing a strong presence in Dublin is critical to our continued growth in EMEA.”
Commenting on the announcement, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD said, “If we are to get jobs growing again, we must not only rebuild the economy but we must also take tough decisions to target the sectors and the companies which have potential for high levels of growth in the coming years, and by implementing the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs we are determined to achieve this. Today’s announcement that Indeed, a dynamic, fast-growing company, is coming to Ireland and creating 50 jobs, shows what can be done. Through the Action Plan for Jobs, we are determined to replicate this across the country in the coming years.”
Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland said, “The decision by Indeed to locate its EMEA headquarters in Dublin is great news for Ireland and it adds significantly to our reputation as a hub for new businesses. Attracting high-growth companies to invest in Ireland has been a specific target of IDA Ireland since January 2010. Since then there has been a very strong flow of this type of business coming to Ireland, with 35 investments won in the last two years. On behalf of IDA Ireland I wish Indeed every success with this operation and offer the full support of IDA as the company grows its base in Ireland.”
