IN THE SECOND jobs announcement for the capital today, a online advertising company has announced plans to hire 100 people at its Dublin office.
Adroll, which keeps track of people who visit an online store and displays targeted ads to them, said it plans to more than double the staff numbers at its offices in Dublin.
The move will bring AdRoll’s Dublin headcount to 220.
The jobs are in the areas of sales, account management, business development, finance and engineering.
The company set up its headquarters for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) in Dublin just last October. It said that its growth has far exceeded expectations since then.
CEO Aaron Bell said Adroll was “excited about the target we have found in Ireland and the response we’ve had since entering the European market”.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who attended the announcement, said it was “a vote of confidence in Ireland”.
The company has more than 2,000 customers in more than 15 countries across Europe.
AdRoll’s expansion was supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
