Kobo establishes software development center in Dublin

Today Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, announced that Kobo, is to establish a software development center in Dublin with the expected creation of over 30 highly skilled jobs. This investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

Kobo Inc. is one of the world’s fastest-growing eReading services offering nearly 3-million eBooks, magazines and newspapers. With top-ranked eReading applications for Apple, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows products, Kobo allows consumers to make eReading social through Facebook Timeline and Reading Life, an industry-first social experience that lets users earn awards for time spent reading and encourage others to join in. Headquartered in Toronto and owned by Tokyo-based Rakuten, Kobo eReaders can be found in major retail chains across the globe. For more information, visit www.kobo.com.

The new Dublin technology centre will provide software development support for all worldwide Kobo partners, as well as localisation and feature enhancement for all local markets. Leveraging the local talent and expertise of Dublin’s software engineers, Kobo will drive forward new innovations in eReading. Kobo is an exciting addition to the strong cluster of Consumer and Digital Media companies with technology operations in Ireland.

“Ireland was chosen for our new technology centre due to its availability of highly qualified people with the right mix of technical skills, access to world-class academic institutes, and attractive research and development initiatives”

Richard Bruton, TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation
