Online Backup Provider Dropbox to Open Office in Ireland

It was recently revealed that US-based online backup provider, Dropbox, will be soon establishing an international Operation Center in Dublin, Ireland. Taoiseach Enda Kenny stated: ‘The new office will build upon Dropbox’s ability to supply technical support to our many online backup users around the world. This investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.’

The online backup supplier’s key aim for this new office is to recruit personnel for a variety of job roles, such as account management, user operations, and multi-lingual sales teams. This extension of their workforce will specifically provide support to European regions.

‘As part of Ireland’s mission to become the world’s best small country for business we have become a European hub for many of the world’s leading digital firms,’ Kenny added. ‘The arrival of an online backup firm like Dropbox shows Ireland’s growing capacity to usher in the next generation of internet companies. I wish Dropbox every success and offer them continued support from the Irish Government throughout their development.’

Around thirty to forty jobs are estimated to be created in wake of the new office.
