Gaming company Swrve has announced plans to add 100 jobs to its workforce in Ireland over the next two years.

Hugh Reynolds, Swrve chief executive, said: “This funding round puts us in an outstanding position for growth. ” Our team in Dublin already consists of the brightest and best – we just need more of them. A lot more.”
