SILICON VALLEY NATIVE Guidewire Software is to expand its Irish office, more than doubling its workforce over the next year.

The software solutions firm will create 75 new positions at its Global Services and Regional Development Centre in Blanchardstown.

The expansion is supported by IDA Ireland and brings its total staff numbers in Ireland to 125.

Guidewire was set up on America’s west coast in 2001 and established its Dublin location in July 2011.

“Our team has quickly gained the confidence of Guidewire customers globally, to such an extent that in our 18 months of operation we have significantly expanded the scope of projects we work on,” said the company’s first Irish employee Niall Lalor. “We now expect to add 75 new team members to meet additional expected demand. This is a really exciting time to be at Guidewire.”

The 75 new roles on offer include graduate/entry level software consultants, experienced consultants, developers and product managers. Recruitment is already underway.
