More jobs on the way to Tallaght


Global software firm Fleetmatics will be expanding its local team here in Tallaght over the next few years after posting a major hike in revenue last year.

The Tallaght based company which provides leet-management and other mobile-workforce software, now employs over 1,200 people after starting out with less than a dozen staff in its Templeogue office in 2004.

Although Fleetmatics is a New York listed company it says it plans to hire another 75 research-and-development staff in Dublin by 2018, when it expected its local workforce to hit over 200.

The company will also develop a new network operations centre in Tallaght as part of the expansion plans. It has an estimated 37,000 customers in all the major English-speaking markets, as well as mainland Europe and Mexico.

Last year the company delivered revenue of nearly $285 million, up almost one-quarter on 2014, for a net income of just under $39 million.
