Tech Firm To Create 150 New Jobs In Dublin

Up to 150 new jobs are to be created in Dublin by technology firm Citrix, as part of an expansion drive at its East Point Business Park.

The job creation, which is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland, comes following a decision to centralise Citrix’s Inside Sales activities in Dublin, combined with an increased focus on Customer Success services and the growing adoption of cloud technologies by businesses across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The new jobs will primarily consist of Inside Sales and Technical Support Services roles to support Citrix transition to a cloud model.

Citrix's current office facilities will also be upgraded to provide a state-of-art work environment, which encourages open collaboration and social interaction. The expanded office will provide workspaces for over 400 employees and will host the EMEA Inside Sales and Tech Support functions and other support roles.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O'Connor said: "I am delighted to be here today for this major expansion by Citrix. We already have a strong footprint of ICT companies in the Dublin area and we always encourage these companies to expand and diversify. That is exactly what Citrix have decided to do, with the creation of an additional 150 valuable, high skilled jobs, which is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer. I am confident that Ireland has the IT skills available to facilitate this exciting expansion."

As part of the expansion, Citrix is also establishing a Sales Academy at its Dublin offices in order to develop junior sales talent, with the aim of preparing them for more senior roles with the company in the future. For technical roles Citrix has an established internship program that has been accepting candidates for over five years and have developed close links with the universities and Institutes of Technology in Ireland.
