Ireland is home to these 18 US tech titans – and they’re hiring

Jul 4, 2022

Save article Dublin and Cork are two of Ireland’s major hubs favoured by US tech giants from Apple to ServiceNow. But there’s lots of jobs on offer all over the country this 4 July. Towards the end of last month, the 2022 edition of the Most Attractive Employers Index Ireland found that Irish Gen Z and millennial students had their sights set on working for big tech multinationals. The index revealed that IT and engineering students rated Google and Intel as their most attractive employers, respectively, with Microsoft, Apple and Amazon close behind. Why did the students surveyed pick these US-headquartered tech giants? Perhaps it has something to do with the prestige of working for a big name, international company. Or, the index suggested that students may associate these companies with market success, a willingness to embrace new technologies and innovation. So, if you’re interested in working with a major US tech player, here’s a list of 18 companies currently growing their Irish teams. Adobe Adobe Software Trading Company Limited is a subsidiary of California-headquartered computer software company Adobe Systems Inc. Adobe has had a presence in Ireland for two decades. It currently employs almost 4,000 people here, having grown from less than 100 Irish-based employees in 2005. Its base is in Citywest, Co Dublin. The company makes well-known software such as Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player. It is currently recruiting for a number of tech and engineering roles in Dublin, such as tech support engineers, tech support consultants and sales ops representatives. Airbnb The online accommodation rental platform has its European headquarters in Dublin. Founded in the US in 2008, it began hiring in Ireland in 2013. It currently has around 500 workers in Ireland, and it’s still hiring . In 2016, Airbnb unveiled a second office at Hanover Quay in Dublin. Known as ‘The Warehouse’, the new building was announced initially in 2015 along with 200 new jobs . Its other office is located in The Watermarque Building in the capital. The company’s CEO, Brian Chesky, said in April that all Airbnb employees would be allowed to “live and work anywhere” to fully take advantage of flexible working practices. Alphabet Better known as Google, Alphabet is the tech giant’s parent company. The two announced that Google would become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alphabet in 2015, alongside Calico, Google Ventures, Google Capital, Google X, Fiber and Nest. While Google featured across the board in the top 10 most attractive employers to Irish students (mentioned in the introduction), Alphabet recently ranked in third place in LinkedIn’s list of the best places to work in in 2022. Google has several offices and data centres in Dublin. It caused consternation in 2020 during the pandemic when it rowed back on a previous decision to lease an office in Dublin’s Docklands. However, people’s concerns that the company might be pulling out of Ireland slightly were proven to be premature. In February, it revealed that it had been granted permission by Dublin City Council to establish a new campus in the headquarters of the National Treasury Management Agency, which it bought in 2020 for €120m. The office could accommodate up to 1,700 employees. No doubt, Google will continue making use of Ireland’s crop of tech and engineering graduates. It is still hiring here. Recently, its head of engineering in Dublin, Dr Jessica McCarthy , told Siliconrepublic.com that Ireland was crying out for talent. Analog Devices The US semiconductor company announced that it was creating 250 new jobs in Ireland by 2025. Analog Devices has been in Ireland since roughly the 1970s and currently employs around 1,300 staff here. It is looking to add new recruits with software and AI skills to work in areas such as Industry 4.0, sustainable energy and next-generation connectivity. The company’s recent €100m investment in Co Limerick will be key to its continued European expansion. It is planning to build a new facility for innovation, called ADI Catalyst, at its Irish base in Raheen Business Park in Limerick. Amazon Amazon has several sites in Ireland. Its Cork office provides customer service support, while its other corporate entity, Amazon Data Services Ireland Limited, provides tech support for its websites. The company has had a base in Ireland since 2005. Amazon Web Services (AWS) came to Ireland in 2007. It has several data centres here, as well as wind farms in areas including Cork and Donegal . Over the past few years, Amazon has consistently announced big hiring plans for its Irish operations. In 2018, it said it was creating 1,000 new tech jobs at a new facility in Dublin 4. Last September, it said it was hiring 500 people for its warehouse in Dublin. The previous year, in 2020, Amazon had already pledged to bring its Irish workforce up to 5,000 with a hiring announcement for Cork and Dublin. Apple The tech giant was recently named the biggest company in Ireland by The Irish Times as part of its Top1000 list. It first came to Cork in 1980 and has grown its operations in Ireland significantly since then. In a piece on Apple’s 40th anniversary in Ireland , Silicon Republic’s editor Elaine Burke described its humble origins in Cork with just 60 employees. These days, Apple employs more than 6,000 people and its Cork campus is vast. In April of this year, the company revealed it was adding a new multimillion-euro engineering and test facility on to its Cork site. Apple recently became the first company in the world to surpass a $3trn valuation. It is hiring for several roles in Ireland currently. Cisco Cisco may have only just announced it is exiting Russia and Belarus , but it is still going strong – and hiring – in Ireland. The Silicon Valley-based manufacturer and designer of networking tech equipment is the latest company to leave Russia and Belarus due to the ongoing war in Ukraine. It has two facilities in Ireland, including its Irish headquarters in the capital. It employs more than 300 staff across its product design and development, marketing, manufacturing, HR and software engineering divisions. In March of this year, Cisco scooped the top spot in Ireland’s best large workplaces list for the second year running. In 2018, Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins visited Ireland to announce the creation of 100 new jobs to help further the company’s capabilities in AI, machine learning and the internet of things, in Galway and Dublin. HP Inc The Californian tech giant’s portfolio spans personal computers, printers, software, services and other IT infrastructure. HP set up its operations in Ireland in the early 70s and since then it has grown steadily. It has around 600 staff here in total across its locations in Kildare, Galway, Belfast and Dublin. In 2021, the company announced it was creating 150 new high-tech jobs in R&D, cybersecurity, software development and cloud consulting. The jobs are to be based at its sites in Galway and Kildare, however, HP said they could be carried out from anywhere in the country. In May, HP appointed Val Gabriel as its new managing director for Ireland. Gabriel said he hopes to build on the company’s cybersecurity, hybrid working and sustainability capabilities. IBM IBM’s Irish headquarters are located on Dublin’s Shelbourne Road. It has been in Ireland since 1956, having been founded way back in 1911 in the US. In a piece about the company’s 100-year anniversary in 2011, Silicon Republic’s former editor John Kennedy recalled attending company events in the 90s in the Shelbourne Hotel, where IBM had started its first Irish operation in one room. By the time Kennedy was writing in 2011, IBM had grown to more than several thousand employees at its west-Dublin campus alone. Hiring Now
