Ecommerce firm eShopWorld has announced it will create up to 250 new high-end jobs over the next three years. The announcement coincided with the official opening of its global headquarters at Airside Business Park in Swords, Co. Dublin by Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton.

The jobs announcement is part of a €25 million investment that eShopWorld will make in people, software development and R&D over the coming three years as it continues to grow and expand. It will bring total employment at the firm to almost 400 staff by 2019, inclusive of 80 new jobs created in 2016. The new roles are focused on technical development and R&D activity and will allow the company to further enhance and upscale its proprietary ecommerce solution. The majority of the roles will be based in Swords.

eShopWorld provides bespoke ecommerce solutions to enable some of the world’s most iconic clothing and sportswear brands to grow internationally while delivering a seamless, localised online shopping experience. Its continuing growth is supported by a platform and fulfilment network that provides end to end checkout solutions, sales, customer service, and shipping and returns management to customers in over 200 countries.

eShopWorld was launched in Dublin in 2010 by founder and CEO, Tommy Kelly. It has grown from a team of just six staff to 150 today with a presence in Dublin, Newry, the US, Singapore and the Netherlands.  In 2016 it was named Ireland’s fastest growing tech company in the Deloitte Fast 50 (for the second year in a row) having quadrupled its revenues to €211m since 2015.

In other good news for the economy, 100 new jobs were announced at Kings Laundry in Cork as part of a €2 million expansion plan at a site in Little Island. The extra staff will take employee numbers at the company to over 550. Kings Laundry is the largest supplier of laundry services to the hospitality sector in Ireland.
