IDA Ireland today welcomed the announcement that Salesforce.com, the leading enterprise cloud computing company, is currently recruiting more than 100 new jobs in sales, business development, marketing and technical IT and support. The company already employs 300 at its European Corporate Sales Headquarters in Sandyford, Dublin.

“Ireland has played a key role in the success of salesforce.com.  We have been delighted with the calibre, flexibility and commitment of our Irish employees and we believe that Ireland continues to be a highly attractive location for high-tech industries – Dr Steve Garnett, chairman EMEA, salesforce.com.

IDA Ireland CEO, Barry O’Leary commenting on today’s announcement said “This adds to the strong flow of prominent technology and digital media announcements in Ireland in recent months. The growing cluster of cloud computing investments from the world’s leading technology companies enhances Ireland’s reputation as the Internet Capital of Europe.’’

‘’Ireland continues to attract leading investments from global technology companies aided by our improving competitiveness and availability of skills.’’ Concluded Mr. O’Leary.

“Salesforce.com has been investing in Ireland since 2001 and now has almost 300 employees across sales, renewals and customer success. We are now actively recruiting across all functions in Dublin and plan to fill at least 100 positions,” said Dr Steve Garnett, chairman EMEA, salesforce.com.

The company is actively recruiting to meet the demands of new business and continued growth and expansion in Ireland.  It’s creating tech-industry jobs at its European corporate sales headquarters in Sandyford, Co Dublin. The new jobs to be filled include corporate sales account executives, business development specialists, marketing as well as roles in technical IT and support and will cover all major European languages.

“These jobs are being created in response to major growth and demand for our cloud computing services across EMEA,” commented Dr Garnett.   “The next phase in the cloud computing model is being driven from the changes that are driving the consumer web. The impact of social networking and collaboration, new mobile devices like the iPad, and the drive for real-time information are changing business expectations, the same way they have changed consumer ones.”

He added, “Ireland has played a key role in the success of salesforce.com.  We have been delighted with the calibre, flexibility and commitment of our Irish employees and we believe that Ireland continues to be a highly attractive location for high-tech industries.”
