Autodesk To Create 200 New Jobs

Design software firm Autodesk will create 200 new jobs by the end of 2018 at its new facility in Dublin.

The Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys TD joined Autodesk CEO Andrew Anagnost to announce the opening of a major new site for the company.

The company will initially hire 200 people in finance, operations, localisation and sales operations by the end of this year to support its EMEA business.

The Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, warmly welcomed the investment by Autodesk and said: "I am delighted that a company of Autodesk's international stature and expertise has decided to invest in Ireland with a project which will create 200 new jobs. We already have a strong footprint of innovative ICT businesses investing in Dublin and Autodesk's decision to locate its new facility in Ireland, which will develop its cutting-edge services in computer aided design, is very good news indeed. We have the IT skills available to enable the company to grow and to embed their operations in Ireland. Their arrival is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer."

CEO Andrew Anagnost also said: "Today we are announcing a significant investment in Ireland which will see us open a new office space and recruit 200 people in the first year. We selected Dublin because of its global business environment, talent, ability to support European languages, excellent long-term cost structure, and quality of life for employees. Dublin is a vibrant, multicultural and creative city. These qualities align well with our brand and culture and we think Dublin will be a great fit for us."

Autodesk is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
