DUBLIN, Ireland - Nitro, a global company specialising in document productivity solutions, has opened a new EMEA headquarters in Dublin.
Centrally located along the banks of the Grand Canal in Dublin 2, the larger office space spans over two floors at Charlemont Place and sets Nitro up, it says, for its next stage of growth in the region.
Nitro established its first office in Dublin in 2013 with just three employees and has since rapidly expanded. In 2014, Nitro's leadership team committed to creating 50 new roles in Dublin within the first two years of operation and now employs more than 70 people in its Dublin home. The new office space allows the company the capacity to create 70 additional jobs over the next two years.
"I would like to congratulate Nitro on the opening of their new EMEA headquarters in Dublin. This new space will allow the company to double their headcount which will set them up for their next stage of their growth. Dublin is now rightly regarded as the Tech Capital of Europe and announcements like todays from Nitro reaffirm that position," Minister for Trade, Employment, Business, Pat Breen said at the opening of the new offices on Thursday.
With its global headquarters in San Francisco, the PDF productivity and eSigning software company has rapidly expanded in Ireland. After hiring more than 25 new staff over the past twelve months in Dublin, Nitro plans to continue to grow its Dublin team. "The new space provides the company with the capacity to nearly double our current team to more than 140 people," Katie Banks, Director of People & Workplace at Nitro said Thursday. "We want this to represent Nitro's continued commitment to our EMEA operations and headquarters in Dublin."
Nitro's EMEA headquarters plays a central role in the company's global business strategy with every function of the business represented on Irish soil. In particular, Engineering has a special home in Dublin as a Center of Excellence for Nitro.
"Dublin has done a tremendous job bringing technology organizations of all sizes to the city. With an abundance of talent in Dublin, Nitro is committed to investing even more in our team here and to make Dublin our core development center. With an amazing culture, meaningful work to offer talented people, and now a new, beautiful office here - I think Nitro really stands out." - David O'Donoghue, VP of Engineering at Nitro.
"Nitro's decision to double its footprint in its EMEA HQ in Dublin is very welcome. Nitro is a leader in its space and the software engineering team will be central to developing products to better serve the company's growing customer base. This is a time of innovation and growth for Nitro which will be ably supported by the availability of tech talent in Ireland," Mary Buckley, Executive Director of IDA Ireland said Thursday.
