Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD and Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton TD today announced that Squarespace, the leading all-in-one website publishing platform, plans to establish its EMEA Headquarters in Dublin along with the creation of 100 new jobs. The initiative is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation through IDA Ireland, the government agency responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland.
Based in New York, Squarespace’s product allows anyone to easily create professional blogs, web pages, stores and galleries without touching a line of code.
The new headquarters in Dublin will serve Squarespace customers around the globe and will include a variety of customer care roles.
“We chose Dublin as our first location outside of New York City over many others in Europe. Dublin offers us a friendly, young, and talented workforce in a vibrant center city location. It’s the perfect choice for Squarespace”
Anthony Casalena (Founder and CEO of Squarespace)
The new jobs are being supported by IDA Ireland.
“Three years ago IDA Ireland formed a division specifically tasked with finding high-growth companies such as Squarespace, whose products make world-class web design accessible to anyone in an easy-to-use package. From our first contact with the firm in New York almost 12 months ago, we have been assisting Squarespace in their plan to open an office in Ireland. Squarespace will join a number of other IDA-backed Internet companies in the Dublin area“
Barry O’Leary (CEO of IDA Ireland)
Today’s announcement was attended by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton.
“The decision by Squarespace to base its headquarters in Dublin is a signal of Ireland’s growing reputation as the Internet capital of Europe”
Enda Kenny (TD, Taoiseach)
