NEWS AGENCY STORYFUL has announced it is creating 30 new jobs at its Dublin headquarters.

It comes almost a year after the agency was acquired by Rupert Murdoch’s media giant News Corp for €18 million.

Led by former RTÉ journalist Mark Little, Storyful tracks breaking stories and viral videos online.

Verified content is then licensed for use by media organisations, including the BBC, The New York Times, Al Jazeera, and Vice.

These new jobs will be in the area of research and development, aiming to develop and improve the agency’s technology platform.

Little said:
