Search Optics, a US Digital Marketing company, plans to create the new roles over the next two years through the establishment of its EMEA headquarters in the capital. The company currently employs 15 people in Ireland.
The firm, whose Dublin HQ opens today on Fumbally Square, Dublin 8, provides an integrated digital marketing platform to many of the world’s leading blue chip companies and the new jobs will be across a range of different digital marketing disciplines. The company say they will be seeking both new graduates and existing industry professionals.
Kerry native Brendan O’Brien has recently been appointed as Search Optics’ Chief Strategy Officer and EMEA President and he said Ireland’s business orientated attitude was a big reason why the company have decided to base their HQ in Dublin. He said:
“It’s a very easy place to do business.
“We’re in a really good timezone, we’ve got a sort of culture which lends itself to growth from the US and we’ve also got a huge talent pool here available to us on our doorstep of highly skilled, technical employees who are capable, digital professionals, and we’re expanding using that and using Dublin as a hub.”
Also Commenting on the announcement, the firm’s Global CEO David Ponn said:
“EMEA is a region that is ripe for growth. It will benefit extensively from the digital marketing technology and hands-on expertise we bring to the marketplace.
“We are dedicated to providing real results for our clients, backed by local employees in Ireland, and, with our new EMEA home in Dublin supporting us geographically, economically and culturally, we are excited to join the Irish business community.”
