US DIGITAL MEDIA and domain services company, Demand Media, is to open an office in Dublin, creating between 20-40 jobs in the process.
The Dublin office will be the company’s largest international outlet, and will serve as the international HQ for its domain services business.
The jobs are to be in product engineering, sales & marketing, IT, finance, operations and customer support, with the jobs to be filled this year.
The jobs announcement comes as the result of work with the IDA. Dave Panos, the executive vice president of emerging markets for Demand Media said that he was “excited to expand our business into the thriving tech scene of Dublin.”
At such an exhilarating time in the domain services industry with the upcoming launch of new TLDs [Top Level Domains], we are eager to recruit creative and high-energy professionals who are up to the challenge of taking the lead in the changing Internet landscape.
The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, said that information and communications technology was a major part of the government’s plans for jobs and growth, with over 11,000 additional people employed in this sector in the last two years.
“Today’s announcement that this leading US company is opening its largest international office in Dublin is a further boost for the sector,” he said.
