Slack bringing over 80 jobs to Dublin over next two years
Slack has moved its European Headquarters to One Park Place in Dublin. With the move to its new 29,000 sq ft office space, Slack also announced it will be hiring for 80 new jobs over the next two years to meet growing demand from European businesses, and existing customers including Barclays, The Financial Times and Ocado Technology.
Slack as a company has come a long way since its product of the same name was developed from a side project created during the design of a video game, and it was particularly big news for Ireland back in May 2015 when it announced it was to bring its European HQ to The Digital Hub in Dublin.
The roles are largely in customer support and account management positions and Slack’s investment in Ireland sees yet another major tech company set up a base in Ireland.
Once these positions have been filled, Slack’s staff numbers in Ireland will be 180 by the end of 2017.
Customer growth and adoption across all markets in Europe are driving the growth of our team and operations in Dublin. We are the fastest growing business application in history. Our user base grew tenfold last year and we’re seeing strong demand across all industries and from businesses of all sizes, for more efficient and effective team communications.
James Sherrett, Slack’s Dublin-based Senior Manager of Accounts
