Web server developer NGINX, Inc. announced on Monday plans to establish a new headquarters for EMEA in Cork, creating 100 tech jobs over the next three years in specialties including sales, marketing, finance, business development, software architecture, engineering, and research and development.

“By launching our EMEA headquarters in Cork we’ll be able to better serve our customers throughout the region, empowering them to deliver the best possible web experience to their end users.” NGINX CEO Gus Robertson said. “Beyond this geographical fit, Cork is strongly aligned in culture and attitude with the values carried over from our global headquarters in San Francisco, and we look forward to bringing in the best and brightest talent in the area.”

NGINX currently has more than 100 employees worldwide, and expects rapid global expansion – with immediate plans for growth across EMEA,. The Cork headquarters will serve to better support existing customers in the region, and will provide a base to reach new customers in high growth areas, including the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and across the Nordics.

“NGINX is the sixth consecutive foreign tech investment in Cork which has chosen to be located in the heart of the city, enticed by its cultural and lifestyle offering and a desire among employees to have easy access to sustainable transport options and Cork’s social attractions.”  CEO of Cork Chamber of Commerce Conor Healy said.

“With the availability of Tier-1 data connectivity to the US, soon to be followed by additional connectivity to mainland Europe via France, as well as excellent digital skills, Cork is ready and able to meet the growing demand from companies such as NGINX to provide digital solutions into the future. Key to continually attracting the most skilled talent from within Ireland and abroad will be increased investment in public transport modes and enabling infrastructure for new city-based homes to facilitate greater economic concentration in the city and a transforming cityscape.”
