CUSTOMER SERVICES COMPANY Zendesk has announced it will hire a further 300 people in Dublin, as it moves to a massive new office.

The company will take on the staff and move to 55 Charlemont Place in Dublin, a 58,000 square foot office.

The announcement is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.

The company first moved to Ireland in 2012, employing two staff.

Colum Twomey, vice president of product development at Zendesk, has been there from the beginning and leads the office in Ireland.

He said:

It’s incredible to see how much we’ve grown over the last five years in Ireland. The local team includes multiple nationalities bringing a variety of skills and plays a key role in both Zendesk’s global product development and EMEA sales expansion.

“This year we are recruiting for engineering, DevOps, infrastructure, product management as well as Android/iOS development roles.

“We’re also recruiting for a large number of non-tech roles including in sales, customer advocacy, finance and legal.”
