Citrix to create 150 new Dublin jobs

Citrix to create 150 new Dublin jobs

Citrix has announced that it will create 150 new jobs as part of an expansion drive at its Dublin office, which is based in East Point Business Park, adding 26,000 square feet of office space to the current footprint. This project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The job creation comes as a result of a decision to centralise Citrix’s Inside Sales activities in Dublin, combined with an increased focus on Customer Success services and the growing adoption of cloud technologies by businesses across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).  The new jobs will primarily consist of Inside Sales and Technical Support Services roles to support Citrix transition to a cloud model.

Citrix’s current office facilities will also be upgraded to provide a state-of-art work environment, which encourages open collaboration and social interaction. The expanded office will provide workspaces for over 400 employees and will host the EMEA Inside Sales and Tech Support functions and other support roles.

Speaking at the announcement, Minister for Jobs Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor said: “I am delighted to be here today for this major expansion by Citrix. We already have a strong footprint of ICT companies in the Dublin area and we always encourage these companies to expand and diversify. That is exactly what Citrix have decided to do, with the creation of an additional 150 valuable, high skilled jobs, which is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer. I am confident that Ireland has the IT skills available to facilitate this exciting expansion.”

Sherif Seddik, VP and Managing Director of Citrix EMEA, added: “We ultimately decided that Dublin is the best location to attract the right talent and build out our Inside Sales EMEA practice.  Having first committed to Ireland in 1999, we have gone from strength to strength and are delighted to continue our growth story in Dublin.

Citrix recognises that the mid-market and SMB segments, combined with the move to a Cloud-based model, are pivotal to our success. Adopting cloud technologies in the enterprise is much more complex than just downloading an app. Companies have to rationalise all of their past, present, and future investments and tie them together seamlessly as they progress toward the cloud future. Today’s announcement will enable us to create a better experience for our customers and partners.

We are looking for a wide range of talent, including new graduates, experienced technical support engineers and sales staff.  We would encourage anyone looking to take their career to the next level to explore the roles available.”

Speaking at the announcement, Martin Shanahan, Chief Executive of IDA Ireland, said: “The decision by Citrix to expand in Dublin is a major endorsement of Ireland as a premier EMEA location for global software companies. The expansion reflects the increasing strategic role that Citrix’s Irish operation will have for the company in EMEA.  Ireland is a committed member of the European Union and provides companies with guaranteed access to the European market.  Ireland continues to attract the brightest multilingual talent from across Europe to work and live here.”

As part of this expansion, Citrix is also establishing a Sales Academy at its Dublin offices in order to develop junior sales talent, with the aim of preparing them for more senior roles with the company in the future. For technical roles Citrix has an established internship program that has been accepting candidates for over five years and have developed close links with the universities and Institutes of Technology in Ireland.
